I really need Final Draft to run in Wine on Ubuntu.

Just curious to know if anyone has success running Final Draft?

Thanks. I'm probably getting ahead of myself as I can't get my modem to work, can't play a DVD, can't play MP3s, the screen looks wonky, and the sound, yeesh!

This is going to take some time to sort out, clearly.

Well I got wine up and running and then installed Final Draft. Blech!

I have a fully paid for copy of Final Draft and it keeps asking me to validate the thing. Problem one. Then I can't find the window that lets you switch elements so easily. You get stuck then.

If you click on the elements in the menu Final Draft crashes.

Suffice it to say, Final Draft is not running in wine on Linux.

Time to check out Celtx.

Too bad FD doesn't work.
