Re: Jumping Winblows to install Linux

to use virtualbox all you'd need is the installation disc for windows when you set up the vm. you can set the vm file to either a certain size or let it be dynamically expanding. VMing w/ virtualbox is incredibly easy.

Re: Jumping Winblows to install Linux

Instead of dual booting I would suggest using VirtualBox and VM'ing windows.

Re: How to run installed programmes?

whats the program? and all you'll have to do is type the executable (program) in the terminal. or if you want a shortcut just add a shortcut to the main menu and use the same command that you wouldve used in the terminal.

Re: mint 11 multiple desktops

downgrading to an older version of compiz might do the trick. the current version is quite buggy.

Re: no sound while running guitarpro with wine

i'd suggest using tuxguitar instead of guitar pro. i know for tuxguitar to get sound I had to install timidity and have it run at startup, so that might work for guitar pro also.
