It is a briiant resource and i feel sure one could hardly stop learning the size of the site
congratulations on a terrific forum
i have tried to open an .EXE without succes so downloaded synaptic but can,t make any sense of it. I seem to be lacking the most basic skills
I think I need a simple guide by numbers without linux jargen
for instance I have synaptic downloaded and extracted Ithink.
But I cant seem to do anything with it.
i believe i should get wine but how are the two linked? and is there a best version number to download?
what happens when "if" i can install wine?
A simple guide woulld be great, if possible
