Re: Manga Studio EX 4 in Wine (Mint 12 MATE)

Try starting it from a terminal to find out what the error is and googling the error.

WineHQ has a gold rating for it, try using a stable version of wine or version 1.1.20 which got the gold rating, though that is a little old.

This handles all the other formats such as quicktime, realplayer, windows media files and divx If not it can be found in So...

Re: mac on virtualbox

can you run mac snow leapard Or now it may be Lion on virtualbox on mint12 and if so is there a thread on how to do it many thanks Yes you can, google is your friend. Though it is very laggy.
