I'm a first time linux user, 4 days ago I download Linspire 5.0 it seems pretty nice OS but its going to take some getting used to and its been quite confusing and frustrating. Anyway to help in the transition period since I do all my work on my computer and I don't have to much time in the short term to learn by trial and error or searching forum after forum. I decided to purchase Crossover 4.2 Standard from what I understand it allows you to run Windows applications in linux. Cool....great.... problem is I cant get the damn program to run. And support from Crossover is just about non existent since I don't have the "pro" version for office networks" the standard which is for single users like me---its support is send an email and wait well it has been 2 days. So If anyone here can help me get this crossover program to run, please I need it I have some assignments due and it doesn't get working soon I'm going to have to reinstall windows and save the linspire for another day (and I really don't want to do that) plus I have a ton of great games that only run in windows
and I cant play any of them right now. And I want to run itunes.
I downloaded it to "my documents" and when I click the downloaded icon---nothing happens. And in case anyone thinks it might be corrupted I have erased it and re downloaded it 2 more times with no success still nothing happens when I click the icon
I am copying and pasting the text from the Crossover site explaining downloading and running the program::::can anyone please explain to me what a Loki is? What a launch terminal window is? And if I have to open up a window do I type the sh install-crossover.sh?

2. To install the product (if using the Loki installer), launch a terminal window, and run the file with sh.
Example: sh install-crossover.sh

CrossOver Office Standard 4.2 Loki Installer 12.28 MB
This installer will work on any version of Linux, and should install and operate under any conditions. This version is the only version that can be installed completely in a user account, which is, in our opinion, the best way to install CrossOver.
MANY THANKS TO ANYONE THAT RESPONDS
