    Wine???

    The first program I want to install on UStudio is a program called TablEdit, a music notation program that allows one to notate in standard notation and tablature.

    I expected it would run in UStudio but when I go to the TablEdit page regarding Linux it says:
    TablEdit on Linux, it works! At this time there are no plans for a Linux version of TablEdit due to the fact that TablEdit runs fine under WINE emulation
    So I go to the WineHQ forum and cannot find anything that clearly explains what WINE is (aside from some sort of emulation program that allows Linux users to run Windows programs?) the relationship of Wine to UbuntuStudio or detailed plans how to install on UStudio.
    I also reviewed threads in this forum (notably How-To FL Studio 9 in Ubuntu (using Wine)) and discover immediately that
    you should know that the installation method depends on your Ubuntu version
    Are Wine and UbuntuStudio compatible?
    Am I asking for trouble in trying to install Wine?
    If not, where can I find detailed instructions on how to install Wine on UStudio?

    Thanks

    I don't know what version you are using but you will have either a "Software Centre" or "Synaptic package Manager" or both already installed in your system.
    Run one of them and search for wine. Mark it for install and click "Apply".
    That's it!

    Try to use Linux native programs for notation. Like MuseScore or Lilypond.

    Hi, wine works in probably any distro. You can install it from synaptic. The first time you run it, a /home/you/.wine folder
    will be created, holding the windows api system, dontaing
    the typical Program Files folders. C:\ is now the folder

    /home/you/.wine/drive_c

    Some choices can be made, use command winecfg to open a settings panel.

    windows apps are installed by command:

    wine reaper425_x64-install.exe

    To launch apps, there may be an icon, or you can use the
    wine command, and account for windows path and naming differences
    by replacing spaces with a * or by quoting the entire path, and
    you can use symbolic links from .wine to /home/you to simplify
    things. Commands

    wine /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program*Files/IK*Multimedia/AmpliTube*3/AmpliTube*3.exe or

    wine "/home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/IK Multimedia/AmpliTube 3/AmpliTube 3.exe"

    windows vst plugins are best handled by installing Reaper,
    or a linux app called Festige.

    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ppa

    there is a wine repository, with a howto to at the link, to add the wine repository to synaptic. You can also click the
    'View package details' link, and download and install the needed packages manually using

    sudo dpkg -i name.deb

    Cheers

    Re: Wine???

    Searched for "wine" in Synaptic Package Manager and got the following:

    gnome colors
    gnome-exe-thumbnailer
    gnome-wine-icon-theme
    libkwindffects1abi3
    playonlinux
    pptview
    q4wine
    shiki-colors
    shiki-wine-theme
    tellico
    tellico-data
    tellico-scripts
    unmass
    wine
    wine-geco 1.4
    wine1.2
    wine1.3
    wine1.4
    wine1.4-common
    wine1.4-dbg
    wine1.4-dev
    wine1.4-i386
    winefish
    winetricks
    (phew!)

    There is a description to each of these, but it's not that helpful.

    My purpose in wanting to install Wine is for sound editing (notation and playback) and realtime sound production (realtime looping) applications.

    Which do I need to install?

    Install the "wine" package unless you find an application doesn't work in the version of Wine provided. If that happens, you can look at the Wine project PPA for a chance at a newer development version.

    Re: Wine???

    All of the above are wine packages (I think)

    Are you suggesting I install wine 1.4 since this seems to be the latest version?

    I assume -dev = developer and -dbg = debug are versions I don't want to be messing with...

    Should I install "wine1.4" (Binary Emulator and Library) or "wine1.4-common" (transitional package)

    Install wine1.4, that is the main package. The rest will follow automaticly.

    And good luck running win apps on linux.

    Before you go too far, you should verify your soundcard and printer
    will be linux compatible, or be prepared to sell or trade them
    as needed. Having an nvidia video card will also help, as their
    support has had a head start compared to ati. A little google search
    with name, brand, alsa, and ubuntu, should reveal all.

    maudio audiophile pci alsa ubuntu etc
    Cheers
