It's been mentioned before, but you should investigate the MONO project...

I would either say, corroded contacts perhaps of the battery terminals?

Or, bad battery capacitors. You can pick them up from your local RatShack for cheap.

that's the problem.

It is easy to say that, but remember, there's more than just programming that goes into successful software. It's technical writing, testing, supporting, marketing (in the case of open source, let's call it advocacy), and other skills as well.

With me, I'd love to donate more of my time and skills to help out my favorite sourceforge products, I just don't have the time.

But I will mention them.

Weird,

I ran SPSS on a VAX system, years ago in my lazy, crazy, hazy, dazy of University..

On a VAX!

SPSS must exist for linux, then, I suggest you google to find it.

Talking maybe this is the last post to the thread..

We can hope it's mine, at least

Anyhoo, a few thoughts on this thread, and I'm outta here.

1. All of these people wanting Mac apps on Linux...Wonder if they've tried it with MOL, after all, they keep asking the Windows people if they've tried it with Wine?

2. Somebody also mentioned PrintMaster/MS Publisher, but the original, the first, and still perhaps the best in this series was Print Shop. Print Shop would be the killer app on Linux!

MOL only works on PowerPC hardware, not on i386 or other platforms.

The application I would like to have ported is Exact Audio Copy. I can run it in Wine (with some limitations), but I'd really like to see it as a native Linux application.

Linux ,Programs, and NTFS...Oh and Messenger

I have a question, I'm new to this... so forgive me. I was reading how to install a program in linux...and gee it sounds like you got to walk down the special corridor turn left knock on the door and say ..Rumplestiltskin sent me... give the secret handshake... pass a general knowledge test. Become a insurance salesperson then laugh at people who don't know how.

Telling me rpm wiggleywoo..or targz..just wont work ok.. Linux was made by a guy I can tell..


Oh and software I'd like to see in Linux... Macromedia studio MX, Photoshop, Trans app, Itunes,Windows Messenger 5, Paltalk, all the Win TV stuff Hauppauge, Yz doc, maybe Ms Office 2003... I don't like open-office its not as pretty. Adobe acrobat, DivX , Jet Audio, and a whole lot of other stuff zonealarm...look its my software and I like it and its my opinion so ... until I see anything better I'm suggest its ported to linux... so there. as long as its easy to install I'll consider other things...

by the way Open office could do with a face lift looks like it was made by a guy wearing a white coat and with a lot of pens in his top pocket. that doesn't get invited to many parties...

OK I'll be honest and I'll make it simple... this is the extent of my Linux software ability..I'm quite happy to use cotton but have absolutely no idea how it works.
So guys be kind and tell me how in real simple and easy how to please please...I really want to use Linux its real pretty if a little clunky but unlike windows ... for most of the programs it works no fiddling needed I think?

and before you laugh..or tell me to go play with windows... think on this..

Most beautiful but dumb girls think they are smart and get away with it, because most people on the whole aren't much smarter.

How to

Look its like this ..Just any program in Linux.. I grew up with the concept of double click answer a couple of questions and... ta da program installed...Linux I find is not like this. its basic concepts I don't understand.

I can run round windows and make most users seem dim. But unless there is a clear way of installing... its the first hurdle... if I get over that... things should be ok...

I want to dump XP pro..since SP2 its been nothing short of a nightmare...and in the next year or so Longhorn...will arrive and I don't hold out much hope for using something that you can only get with a new PC with a sort of win 3.1 clone on it allowing you net access to download the rest once they confirm you have bought a MS product...and are using ...what they call prescribed software...?????at first and then you have to download the rest of the system ...which you will buy in bits..!!!

Linux will Very soon find its self shoved into the Lime light as the single major Alternative to Windows as its never really been before. its been fringe for a long time as far as mainstream home users.. you buy a PC now ..you get windows, you build one or have it built for you its 9 out of ten going to be windows on it.

Longhorn may well be the biggest chance in a long time for Linux to overhaul windows. for system builders and those home users that the New longhorn will be a credit card too far.. Apple... while working is just.. Unbelievably over priced and while it has some real kewl concepts it doesn't always work.. and upgrading it is like a major trial.

So I want to change to Linux.. I don't understand the basic concept of how to install programs in Linux..or port them ...No tech speak However make it simple ...hold my hand sort of thing...ok I told you before ...make it simple please... it doesnt matter what program I want to load... I want to know the basic concept and how to do...ok

it all depends on what program you want to install.. if this is a program that only works for windows and you cannot find any linux type you can use a program for linux called wine. now depending on your Linux dist, the way to install wine will vary. if you want to run a win32 application in linux and wine is installed you go to the Terminal (command prompt) and just type

Code:
cd /to/file/folder/
wine file.exe
cd means change directory (folder)
wine is a sort of windows emulator... it allows you to run windows programs in linux, some programs however are very buggy while others run really well (photoshop runs great)

now there are many ways to install a linux program, if the program ends in rpm for example wolfenstein.rpm you would do this

Code:
cd /to/file/folder/
rpm -Uhv wolfenstein.rpm
rpm is what you type alway when dealing with rpm files (to install, upgrade, uninstall)
the U means upgrade which is best, h means hash (not sure what it means but its important)
v means verbose mode, that means it will show you what its doing, if you dont put the v there you will not see it install but it will.

if you have debian or fedora you can use the easiest way to install certain programs... its the apt-get system. basically there are applications stored on servers all over just for the apt-get people. what it does is download the file for you, install it, and them remove the downloaded file since you no longer need it. this is how you would use it.

Code:
apt-cache search aim
this searches for any program with aim in the title or the description
Code:
apt-get install gaim
that will install the gaim (AIM) program on linux.

once most of the programs are installed they will have shortcuts on your K menu (if using KDE) just like windows there is a 'start' button to acces your menu. you can also type the start command in a command prompt to start the program...

examples:
Code:
firefox
gaim
xchat
those will all start their respective programs.
