Need Wine to see Reader for installs

Postby Crimson_Wake on Mon Nov 17, 2008 9:44 am

Morning everyone!

I use a program for my business that could conceivably run under wine, so I gave it a try just now.

I began the install and it needed Acrobat Reader 4.0 or higher. I went into the deb repo and got Reader 8.1.1 or what not. It's loaded and good to go.

I go for the install in Wine again, and it still says I need 4.0 or higher and cancels the install.

How do I get wine to see 8.1 in Mint....OR do I have to install 8.0.exe in wine to do this?

Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Blake,

I would say, "give it a try!"
You could always uninstall it later, as well if it doesn't work.

God Bless

In searching for other answers, I noticed you have another thread with this same theme going...OK...
