The wine.desktop file contains: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Wine Windows Program Loader Exec=wine start /unix %f MimeType=application/x-ms-dos-executable; Icon=wine...

Re: Point Linux 3.0 Beta 1 is out!

I hope this is a post for discussing technical problems about the beta version. To report a few problems. First I installed the 64bit version, but it was not possible to have WINE working. The wine-bin:1386 was missing. So, I changed to 32bit version. So far it behaves well. Except from some multime...

Re: Point Linux 3.0 Beta 1 is out!

Happy New Year! and congrats for the release.

I tried the 64bit version, however, I can't install the wine-bin:386. It is not in the repos. In PL 2 with dpkg --add-architecture i386, apt-get update, apt-get install wine-bin:i38 I was able to run the MSWindows applications I needed. In the PL 3 beta?

Re: thunderbird 24.1 freezes with lightning 2.6.2

After I run thunderbird -safe-mode I deactivate all addons, then TB runs OK. Then I disable lightning and with all the other addo...

thunderbird 24.1 freezes with lightning 2.6.2

Hi, Thunderbird 24.1 freezes with the lightning 2.6.2. When I disable lightning Thunderbird works OK. I have no problem to change to IceDove, it works pretty good with the lighting version that there is in the repos. However, the "send to" from caja just opens Icedove, no new email with th...

Re: nvidia drivers and MATE 1.6

Hi,

Thanks for the answer. Standard drivers are enough for me, so I will forget nvidia. About MATE, no I can see any news functionality, ate least interesting to me, but according to their site they have done bug fixes, and work under the hood. I will continue testing the 1.6 version.

Cheers

nvidia drivers and MATE 1.6

Hi all, I have currently installed pointlinux in my computers (2 laptops and one box, all production machines mostly for scientific work). I think I like PL much. I have migrated from LMint (LTS), but not much experience with debian or debian based distros (several years with fedora/SLinux/Fuduntu)....
