You mention "virtual Windows".....Do you have Windows running on a virtual machine? Please give a complete description of your setup.
Running virtual Windows I mean on the same system but just not as the running program on the computer. The running program is Linux Ubuntu and then I log on to Windows virtual. I only have windows loaded for the kids to play their games but I use Linux for the rest (Business). All the games the kids play have to be loaded on Windows XP but I am battling to play, loading is not a problem but playing it is the problem. I do not know if this will help you understand better. I am still learning myself as this system was installed by my dad and he is a true believer of Linux Ubuntu!!
