Re: [NTB] NoteTab 5 with Wine
- Hi Ben,
Thanks for your comments. Check out the following for operation
under Linux. Please take any discussion about this to the
OffTopic list. TIA See the footers for links to it or the
section below about the mailing lists.
We won't be making a Linux version, but all our software will run
in Linux under Wine and certain Linux OS'. Larry Hamilton knows
quite a bit about it and has some good notes at...
He also has a Support Blog, on various computer related topics.
This link is to the Linux topic, with notes on installing Wine
Also, you might want to check out the software he sells to make a
small commission for him just to say thanks to him for making the
information available to you.
For additional discussion group messages about using NoteTab on
Linux, check out the NoteTab Off Topic list below. If you search
for "larry hamilton linux" without the quotes, you'll find quite a
bit of messages to refer to.

------------ Discussion Mailing Lists at YahooGroups ------------
You may sign up for the different Fookes Software discussion mailing
lists from either of the links below. Please take a minute or so and
read this. There are many lists and your help in posting messages
properly to the different lists is greatly appreciated.
_Please_ read the following to see what list to send messages to and
some basic guidelines to follow. It is very important to keep the
lists running efficiently, getting faster replies, getting replies
from the best qualified/expert people, searching archives, and other
things as well.
- Use a descriptive Subject: line to begin with! This is important!
Newbie Needs Help and similar Subject lines should be changed
immediately to an appropriate Subject such as:
Files Keep Opening When I Open NoteTab (was Re: [NTB] Newbie Needs Help)
Basic Help With Web Pages (was Re: [NTB] Help)
Need Clip to Reformat HTML <head>...</head> (was Re: [Clip] Need Clip)
- Messages should be referred/redirected to the appropriate lists such as
Clip questions to the Clips list, HTML to the ntb-HTML list. You can Cc:
the sender of a Clips question and send your reply to the Clips list. Or,
Reply and Cc: the Clips list stating you will Reply on the Clips list.
- Delete text from your replies that is not needed to understand your
reply - strip footers, and extra text that is not needed.
- If the content of the messages change drastically from the Subject
line, please change the Subject line or start a new Subject with
the same message body of the last message received that you are
replying to and changing the Subject. Don't forget to leave
the original Subject in like: Re: [NH] Frames Using CSS (was How do
I blockquote?) for people that are using filters and so the same
message thread can be followed easier.
- Discussion of software other than Fookes Software is only allowed
on the Off-Topic list and encouraged! Feel free to recommend
competitive software on the Off-Topic list as well. When replying
say from the Basic List and it needs to go to the Clips list,
then send it there and copy the poster in a private message to
the person you are wanting to help letting them know you moved it
to the Clips list. They can sign up for it via the bottom of
every [NTB] message or go to http://www.fookes.us/maillist.htm
- Keep the conversation clean; all age groups are on the list and
cussing/cursing offends many people! TIA :)
+ WHICH LIST to post on???
If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please *_do not_*
post questions about NoteTab *Clips* and other scripting languages
(such as *RegExp*, PERL, etc.) on the NoteTab Basic list. Use the
Clips or Scripts list for them.
More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips or Scripts
lists. HTML should be posted on the ntb-HTML list and off topic
discussion takes place on the ntb-OffTopic list. The Aid4Mail,
MailBag Assistant, Easy Thumbnails, Easy Imager, and Album Express
lists are for discussion of those programs.
The most important thing to remember is please leave the NoteTab
Basic list for the *_very basic_* use of NoteTab. The other lists
are a lot more flexible, for instance: Clips and RegExp can be
used and are welcomed on the HTML list. Thanks!!!
Discussion mailing list subscribing and unsubscribing:
If you are already signed up for the NoteTab Basic list, there are
links in the YahooGroups footer to get to the Clips and Off Topic

You can get a lot of useful Libraries and some great Clips there
