Re: Install Moonlight (silverlight for Linux) from terminal

Which version of Firefox and Linuxmint do you run. My attempt at running Moonlight resulted in an add-in and two Silverlight plugins in Firefox. Other than that a blank page appeared even when trying exemplars from the http://go-mono.com/moonlight. site.

Install Moonlight (silverlight for Linux) from terminal

How can I install Silverlight on Firefox from the terminal rather than downloading from http://go-mono.com/moonlight. The download from the website does not work and I must have this software in operation. Any suggestions welcome.

(solved)shortcut to MS office applications in wine

I have installed MS Office 2007 using Wine. The way I have started applications such as Word is to browse the virtual C drive and locate the WINWORD EXE file. Is there a way of creating a shortcut to EXE files in Office and perhaps adding them to the apps menu?
