I've install WineHQ and now I'm installing Visual FoxPro...I right click the setup file of visual foxpro and click open with "Wine Windows Program Loader".... the setup is running, and setup menu of vfp appears. I click the first installation menu of vfp (Prerequisites) ....and the setup stopped, cannot runs ....even cannot close the setup windows.....what's the problem....? thank you....

If you're going to use Wine, you need to familiarize yourself with the CodeWeavers application compatibility site for apps. The page linked below is for FoxPro, and if you're referring to v9, it doesn't look like it is going to work well:

You may want to look at gambas, kexi, or knoda all available in synaptic.
None are totally equal to MS Access or Visual Foxpro but depending on what you want they can do many things. If you really have to have Foxpro you can dual boot.http://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon9.gif
