Unhappy Dreamweaver installed,but....


Hello!Everyone. This time around I am playing wine.I installed wine and dreamweaver a day!!!! Lots of problems ocurred while installation...

By the way,I got Dreamweaver installed.But it has 2 problems:

1.The font is too small,or you can say incorrect in the menu bar.

2.Big problem!!!I can't open file or save file and input image....I think there are still many problems regarding searching file.

Would somebody mind telling me the reason? Or guide me..Thanks a lot,guys.

That's why I boot into Windows when I need to use windows applications and boot into Linux when I need to use Linux and its app's..

Sorry I can't be much help, I avoid wine and find alternatives myself.

How about VMware?

Thanks for everyone's help.

I've come across VMware before.I think it's a great substitution for Wine.Hey,it's unstable and has many problems (to me).However,VMware has just 30 days to try.And I would like to use similar software but don't cost anything.Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot again.

Wine is just about the only option you will get for free. All others are not opensource and free software, etc.

The tip of the iceberg

Thanks all.

Frankly speaking,the font problem is the smallest issue.However,what makes me angry is that I've spent about a day to install wine->install program (just Dreamweaver)<--And it fails many times->Test.

It all failed at the test procedure.I can't open file,insert graphics.This is the tip of the iceberg.I think it has tons of problems ahead.I would love to quit though.

I don't like booting Linux,windows all the time when I use some special programs like (Dreamweaver,Flash).It's a waste of time.

By the way,except wine,I love Linux very much.
