I've been playing with linux off and on for a while now , and about a month ago I decided to drop windows completely and go with Linux.
With alot of reading I've been able to replace everything I did in Windows with Linux except for a couple of things.
Is anyone familiar with using TMPGenc with wine , or does anyone know of a suitable replacement for TMPGenc. ?
I want to be able to resize mpeg video , cut and join video segments together .
TMPGenc with wine seemed to install fine , the program seems to execute fine , untill I try to open an mpg file . Then the window TMPenc was in disappears ( crashes I assume) and I get a bunch of error text in the shell I used to start Wine. I thought possibly Wine needed extra files from Windows to be able to read and use the mpeg files so I download MediaPlayer 6.4 and installed it . It works the same as TMPGenc . The program starts , but if I try to open a mpg file , It crashes.
I realize Wine is still in development , and what I want to do may not yet work .
My next question is regarding making desktop shortcuts to Windows executables . Is there a proper way to create a desktop link for a Wine/Windows app. I have found that any links I have created so far seem to make the program I am trying to launch far more likly to crash than opening a shell and typing
' wine program.exe '
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
