Re: NEED Vent- New To Linux
And you thought it was open heart surgery, these are actually quite simple next step it's asking you to edit a text file and insert the line it tells you to. We can do that.
It says 'Edit ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system.ini and add the following under the drivers32 section: MSACM.msgsm610=msgsm32.acm'
So assuming you are using Ubuntu we can use the defualt text editor for this you can do it command line (easier) or point and click I'll give the command line.
Press alt+f2 then type 'gnome-terminal' and hit enter, now copy and paste this command, it's telling gedit to open our file.
For me this is a small text file so you should be able to see the drivers 32 section, otherwise hit ctrl+f to bring up the search function and type 'drivers32' since that is the section we are looking for and add the line 'MSACM.msgsm610=msgsm32.acm' underneath where it says drivers32. Now hit ctrl+s to save.
Now you should be back at a terminal window, let's do the last change.
Type winecfg to bring up the wine configuration tool. Click on the Audio Tab and make sure the box that says ALSA is checked.
According to your guide it wants you to use the drop down menu towards the bottom take it off a full and change it to emulation. Then check the box for driver emulation it's down towards the bottom as well.
Hope this helps
