Ubuntu :: Opening A Browser In WINE?

Oct 26, 2010

I have been working on this program for Windows all month it is a logging program for amateur radio. Anyway, 75 percent of my users are using Linux. I'm guessing with WINE because the program is Windows based. That's all fine and well with me, but I have a problem. The donations option, opens a browser and lets the user make a donation to my paypal account, and the callsign lookup option opens the browser to the database for whatever callsign the user enters. WINE, doesn't seem to support opening browsers for my software, but I've seen it do it for other software. I was wondering what I needed to run to have WINE open a browser on linux like the other software I've seen do it.Here is a snippet of the code used to open the browser to my donations page:




What can I run the URL with that WINE will understand?

Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)

General :: Opening / Loading .exe Files Acer Aspire One?

Aug 10, 2010

I bought a Acer Aspire One A110-Ab Netbook, Linpus Linux Lite version, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 8GB NAND Flash

Just for openers, I don't understand how you "open" (?) "load" (?).EXE files or make them happen.I have been using Windows all my life & to remember you just CLICK on a .exe file and it just 'happens'

Specifically, I am in Turkey and had to purchase a dongle from a Turkish phone company to access the Internet. When I insert the dongle, it shows the relevant .EXE file but when I click on it, nothing happens. No-one here knows LINUX.

I just one to talk to someone who has the same ACER as me and who can guide me through with GREATED simplicity (really idiot instructions would be fine).

I am using 2 PCs, both running ubuntu. I want to connect via remote desktop (vnc, ssh -X, etc) form one to the other.

General :: Wine Installation To Run Executable Files?

May 11, 2011

I recently got the information that Windows software do not run in Linux as such. In order to run these software (Running the software also includes installing the software by running the set-up executable file) I need to install 'wine' on my system and then run the set-up files from within this 'wine'. I therefore wish to install 'wine' on my system in order to run the corresponding Windows set-up files (which are executable files). I am running Linux Mint version 10 on my system.

General :: Wine On Slackware 64-bit - Run A Windows Program (with Multilib Files)

Jul 19, 2011

I know the subject title makes it seem like this should be something on the Slackware forums but I think it can be generalized to other 64-bit Linux operating systems which is why I ask here. I'm running Slackware 13.37 64-bit and was wondering if I use Wine to run a Windows program (with multilib files), would it still run as if it had been used on a 64-bit computer?

OpenSUSE :: Folders Not Opening On Desktop

May 30, 2010

The other day Home folder on desktop didn't work, I clicked on it and mouse icon would just load and load, but it didn't open it, i had to go to Menu -> Places -> Home to open it. I created my own shortcut to Home and didn't pay too much attention to it. But today I connected my phone via USB and folders mounted on desktop and I got the same behavior, when I click on it, the whole desktop icons disappear and reload but folder doesn't open. And when I go to network, the same thing happens. I recently reinstalled my openSuse, could it be that it took the settings or something from the old installation?

Ubuntu Security :: Opening Privileged Programs From User Desktop?

How do you open a program, in this instance "Zenmap", from the desktop in a user account when it requires root privileges? Is there a way to be prompted for the password, the same way, for instance, you're prompted when mounting a new file system or making a change to the system? I tried entering 'sudo /usr/bin/zenmap' when creating the shortcut, however that didn't work.

General :: WINE GNOME Menus Won't Show Up After Re-install Of WINE?

Dec 18, 2009

Lot of questions about WINE... When I'm done I'm going to make a HOWTO so that others can do what I did It's hard work, but I'm nearly done.The last problem I'm having is the WINE menu on GNOME won't show up after a install of WINE from a .deb package (it usually does). This was after I compiled WINE from source and removed it with "make uninstall" and "rm -rf /.wine".So now I installed the WINE from a deb package and the Wine menu entry is not showing up.I've tried re-installing Wine and rebooting my PC but nothing seems to work.

I'm running 9.04 jaunty. I made a file in gimp and saved it as .xcf. I want it to be a pdf file, so I try opening it with open office drawing, but it keeps opening it with the word processor instead. The word processor starts the file if I do a right-click 'open with' on the file on my desktop, and even if I use open from the file menu in drawing itself. I'm wondering what to do to get drawing to open this file. Is it that .xcf is not supported by drawing?
