    A few extra bits of information. I just ran brutal chess with -r -s arguments. These turn off shadows and reflections. This time it worked.

    Hi,

    Ok, I downloaded the source code of the theme gui and it uses imports the theme files to itself and then sets gconf values, so I've taken what you said and made my script load the keys that I have...

    Re: Is using WINE (or similar) cheating?

    I said "Just". Using a few things through wine is perfectly fine to me. I take it that you don't use linux only for your organiser and nothing else. If you use linux plus wine for the organiser then...

    Re: Is using WINE (or similar) cheating?

    Yes, but with DOSBox or similar, you only run a few apps occasionally on it. If you actually were to run dos programs all the time then you would install dos and use that. You wouldn't install linux...

    um, well actually I agree with this way. If you don't like the alternatives then you have the freedom to go back. That's all fine for me. It's like me with iTunes. I know it's not great and I left it...
