Wine not working in v.3 beta?

I installed the new Gnome version, beta, of course. Using synaptic, I installed wine. But when I click on a Windows executable, as I can do in previous versions of Point, Wine is not an option to open the executable. When I click on Other, Wine is not listed, either. Bug in Wine or Point Linux beta?...

Where to post about the Gnome beta?

I'm not sure where to comment/question the new Gnome desktop. I don't see a forum for it. Where do I address these issues? Thanks.

Re: Integration of desktop with Evolution

Thanks. I haven't installed the Gnome edition yet -- it's still in development, and I don't have a spare machine to try it out. When I do, I'll report back.

Re: Integration of desktop with Evolution

I'm re-posting this question. Is there any more thought to getting this done? And further, will the new Gnome desktop distro integrate the calendar with Evolution? Thanks.

Update to Evolution?

When will the repositories be updated to reflect the latest version of Evolution? The current version, 3.4.x, is very old. And a previous question has gone unanswered -- will Point Linux ever integrate the date display at the top right of the screen with Evolution's calendar? Other distros do this j...

Re: Installing Wine 1.7

Wow. Incredibly complex. Wine won't install because it requires libwine. Libwine won't install because it wants a later version of libc6. I download the version of libc6 that it wants, try to install it as a deb file, and the install dies -- the "Install Package" button won't light up. Sig...

Installing Wine 1.7

Hi. I thought I'd posted this earlier, but I don't see it. Must have screwed up. Wine 1.4x is what is in the repositories. I need to run an app that requires 1.7x. I've tried adding ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa to the software sources, but I get an error when I update synaptic -- it doesn't seem to be able t...

Re: Shockwave flash plugin crashing in Chromium

Yup, installing Chrome in place of Chromium solved the problem for me. Thanks to all.
