Re: WINE download fails cannot locate download error

Hi Karl,I really am trying my best to follow what you are explaining to me. Sorry if I'm a poor student. That appeared to work..... but this is what I'm expecting. If Wine is installed correctly, I'm expecting to see it listed in the list of installed applications when I click on the Linux Mint logo...

Re: WINE download fails cannot locate download error

Thanks Karl, When I did xed, an editor popped up. I deleted line 1 and 3 as you said. Left line 2 and saved. Update appeared to work. This lot popped up in terminal.

Rhythmbox alter tempo plugin

Please.....you might find this request rather sweet but it is serious. I belong to a ceilidh dance club. We meet every Monday. Most of us are over 60. We don't dance too quickly any more. We had all of our dance music stored on an elderly laptop. I know it had a Linux installation installed and it h...

Re: My elderly Acer Aspire One

Gosh, thanks everybody. I would like to proceed with a RAM upgrade. Will it go to 2Gb? I'm really rather fond of this little machine as it comes from my previous existence.....pre-divorce. I also have what some people would describe as over fondness for my elderly vacuum cleaner. On the plus side, t...

Acer Aspire One netbook

Hi group, I have an Acer Aspire One netbook. I've rarely used it over my ten years of ownership but I maintain a certain fondness for this little device. It has been through a few phases of reincarnation. It started with Linpus then Ubuntu then Lubuntu. The other day I took it out of the cupboard......

My elderly Acer Aspire One

Hi, I bought an Acer Aspire One netbook computer around ten years ago. Back in those days, tablets were just appearing but out of my price range. The idea of a tiny laptop really appealed to me. When I bought it, it was running Linux Linpus. It wasn't a very appealing distro. Soon, I changed it to U...
