Re: using Tartube, invalid parameters

I might have it. It is playing in VCL. Hope it stays when done. I redid utube-dl. It may not have downloaded before. Not used to Linus yet.

using Tartube, invalid parameters

I installed utube-dl and I am trying to use Tartube with Linux Mint. The link I copied at the top of the video on utube does not work. Utube says: invalid parameters. One how to page says to use the location button to get the link, but I do not see that. Can anyone help?

...' -- Run dpkg --add-architecture to add it and update afterwards

I did not liked Libre Office and also encountered several problems you mentiones.
WPS Office works very good with doc and docx and I had no problem.

I didnt stop it. It popped up the error window as soon as it was done. A search on “winbind” found this. Could the CD or serial number be outdated?

wine not opening windows program

I Rt click on the .exe file and choose open with Wine.
I immediately get an error, "setup did not complete. Sorry."
Is there some reason a genuine Office 2007 disk cannot be read?
Other programs worked beautifully.
Running LinuxMint.
