Is everything like installable trough wine? (Windows programs).
Such as Adobe products or MAYA 2012.
Examples, I dont use MAYA.
To answer your question: No, wine can install/run a lot of windows programs, but not everything.
You can check if something runs well in winehq's appdb here: http://appdb.winehq.org/
Don't know if I'm just being stupid or not here, but is there any way in Xfce to remove window
decorations in certain applications that don't do it automatically (i.e. Firefox)?
Chrome seemed to do it pretty well, replacing the standard buttons with its own skinned ones, so it has to be possible.
What I mean:
I know you can set up KB shortcuts to a shell script that does it all for you, but I don't really think that's all worth the hassle when I'm going to be switching between Firefox and other apps a lot.
If i can find the program on the AppDB can i install it with wine? Because the version of the program dosen't matter or does it?
Let's say Adobe Photoshop CS5. So is it like that CS4 is supported but not CS5, or is it not at all like that?
Also my conky gives me this, there is the default background behind it, it only does this to some conky configs, i don't know what to edit and after research people say that it is the own_window, but no matter what it wont fix?
Lets take Photoshop for example. If you search for photoshop, you'll land of this page.
Now if you look at CS5 and CS4 you can see that CS5 is rated gold while CS4 is rated garbage. So the version does matter (to a point).
Just because you can find an app on the appdb doesn't mean that it will automatically run or install.
Let's look at the page for CS5: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=20158
We can see in the tests results page what works and what doesn't work.
You can see that it doesn't install. The guy had to copy the entire install from a Windows 7 box.
If you look at the test results table, you'll see that there are tests for different wine versions. So wine versions also matter.
More often than not, newer versions of wine work better than older versions of wine. There are times where wine updates will break something and a piece of software will stop running.
Also, you can see which distros the tests were done on. Most times this is not a big deal. (If it runs on ubuntu it'll probably run on Arch, etc.)
cs5 works kinda ok but CS2 works better in wine than it does natively on windows
Something to note about wine's appdb, if the game or application is rated as bronze or silver, read the review still because I've encountered a few which were marked bronze because you needed to switch a couple registry keys to make it work like platinum (some people can't rate things properly).
I think I am a bit addicted to Linux.
Because everytime I use Windows and check the Arch Linux website to see any upgraded packages, I open up the command prompt and type in "sudo pacman -Syu". :L
Is there an installation guide for Crunchbang 10.1? I've previously used Ubuntu before.
have you tried it? there's hardly anything to it at all.
i need to clarify this,
if in red hat enterprise linux 5, i create a .sh script, and i start off with #!/bin/bash, this means if i attempt to perform Setuid on it, the operation will be ignored as #!/bin/bash ignores Seruid?
I'm still having some problems with LXDE. Does anyone have any suggestions?
What are some good linux games to play? (they must be free of course).
:(HP Customer Service representative posted:
She was sweet though.
Are there any other retailers which would make it conceivable to buy a mid- to low-end laptop with Linux or no OS installed? Dell also does their "Customize" option which makes me hopeful, though again, I may have to chat with a representative for this to work, which I don't mind. Windows is hardly a necessity, in fact it doesn't even work on my school WiFi network.
Oh fuggit. All Dell's laptops look like grandma laptops, unless I go to the $1000+ range.
I might get HP or summat Windows or no Windows.
Linux has been so fun, it got me all distracted that I actually forgot about my studying on PHP.
Need to get back into web development again, oh god why have I forgotten so many tags!
Maybe I should write a package manager and make my own source-based distro.
Shouldn't be to hard, right? Right? RIGHT?
Get a Macbook if you want a laptop that isn't a steaming pile of plastic.
Okay I got it figured out. I just wasn't looking hard enough on the Arch wiki.
All I'll be using it for is Internet and documents, I have my gaming PC at home. So I'll just look for Intel HD graphics and if I feel like spending extra on anything I'll try to find a bigger screen or summat.
Would anyone be interested in a tron clone for linux command line? I'm working on one right now and if you guys were I would love some input on the design
I effing wish that every online laptop store had an option to sort by resolution rather than screen size.
You know they only do it that way because Grandpa better understands it. I don't give a fuck about the size, I want my 1600x900.
Nevermind, I can add nomodeset to the end of my kernel boot options, but my screen resolution is a bit whack. Also, I herped the derp earlier, I confused my desktop with my laptop, this thing is using an AMD A4-3305 APU.
What is the best Linux distro for a Netbook such as my Aspire One D225? I've looked at jolicraft, netbook ubuntu, linux mint etc. but I don't know which one is best for me. Each has their differences but what I mainly want is something that's not too simplistic or tacky that runs well on a netbook. I've used linux before but it's always crashed on me on my old PC so I'm not a first time user.
Well, I've used everything from Ubuntu's Unity to a terminal window on my netbook, and I have to say that my favorite is Crunchbang/Archbang's Openbox setup. Although, my favorite for regular large laptops and desktops is Cinnamon. It's just so nice.
will probably install ArchBang after reading this post.
Installed Crunchbang. Now to install Wine.
If I would like to create a virtual computer on my Windows partition (so installing a Linux virtual PC while running Windows) what would the best software be? VMWare? Or what's on the market?
