Hello from WALES

Post by Borg »

Hi just installed MINT yesterday on a dual boot with Win7, needed to play games* and use my Android phone through the computer**.

Used to use Ubuntu so not a novice, nor expert :)





* Trying to get WINE working, or rather the game to work in, but can't seem to change the authorisation on .exe files yet.


** MyPhoneExplorer.

Welcome to the mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

TY all, yer saw the permission option it just won't allow it to be selected, maybe because the .exe is on a NTFS partition ?

Also anyone solve this, which is a real pain :)
