Re: Installing VMWare Workstation

It worked, it installed the PRO version so I will just try it and than get the free version since I don't have that much Windows software to run.
Your help has been outstanding, how long have you worked with Linux?

Picasa is a web picture organizing program directly linked to Google pictures, check out Google picture organizing and see if that will do your job.

Re: Network Connecting Brother Printer(Resolved, sort of)

I appreciate your attempt to help but as I said, I am not linux conversant. I don't even understand what you meant by Airprint and when I got to the web site you recommended nthat sent me into the glazed over look. Again thanks for trying to help an old man.

Re: Network Connecting Brother Printer

I have tried both the Brother automatic install and the manual setup, since I am not very conversant in linux I have been unable to install a network printer. That being said, I will continue to just connect my printers to my #1 desktop and print from there and use the others for travel etc. :(
