Haha, I figured it out...I'm a little new to Linux, and thanks to your help, I am very close to finally getting FL to work in Ubuntu.
For some reason, though, importing the regkey isn't working for me through regedit. The key IS valid: I had it up and running on my previous Windows installation. I see the regkeys in regedit too... FL just starts in the demo mode.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 on a Gateway FX p-7805u http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/...8/P-78nv.shtml.
NOTE TO ANYONE INTENDING TO RUN FL STUDIO: ADD THE REGKEY AS BOTH SUDO AND NORMALLY!!!
