Re: Linux Mint 11 and Wine

Go to mint menu open software manager type wine.
You can install from there. If you prefer to go to wine web site,on the front page go to download.
Either download Ubuntu or Debian wine depending on the flavor of Mint you are using.
Hope this helps Reahjw6

Re: The top of the winows goes under the panel...

Hey
Silly question but have you checked to see if the panel is on autohide.
Look in the panel properties and uncheck the autohide option if enabled.

Re: sound affects

Hey
Left Click on the sound icon on the panel.
Then click on sound preferences.
Under sound effects hardware input output applications tab you will see alert volume control.
Slide this to desired volume strength.
