      Lee,

      Thanks for a good report!

      The rich edit dlls will have no effect on NoteTab Pro, since Pro's
      input control does not use rich edit. This is why it is critical to
      know what version of NoteTab is involved.

      The one thing that jumps out at me is that you have Wine 0.9.41. The
      current version of Wine is 0.9.45. What I have noticed over the years,
      is that the improvements to Wine from one version to the next make
      NoteTab Pro work better.

      I just discovered that Slackware's main package site has Wine 0.9.45,
      so I uninstalled 0.9.44, and installed 0.9.45.

      I am not able to make the cursor thing happen. I have had it on
      0.9.44, but not all the time. I do not recall ever having it at the top.

      I suggest that you upgrade Wine to the latest version. WineHQ
      recommends that you uninstall the prior version. I always keep the
      prior version that I know worked well, so I can easily go back.

      Again, I get nothing in the shell when starting Pro from the command
      line. Do you get any errors? If not, we'll have to dig into the wine
      debugger to see if it can tell us anything.

      Let us know if Wine 0.9.44 improves things for you.

      I may not be able to dig into this for a few days, maybe not until the
      weekend.

        O.K., so I upgraded to Wine 0.9.45. Everything is the same, except I now get the following error messages (of which I have no idea what they mean):

        fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"

        Could the cursor problem be with the screen on my laptop?

          Lee,

          I am not running Linux on a laptop, so it is possible that it is
          something with X or the display or the driver.

          I am not sure what the errors mean, other than the one about the
          timezone.

          Is there anything via Google about issues with your model of laptop on
          Linux? I have read that the Ubuntu forums are really good for this
          sort of thing.

          Does anybody else have any ideas?

            Yes, I have used the Ubuntu forums quite a bit. They're great, and quite extensive. I did find one problem, it was with a driver, but I replaced it and it didn't change anything. Oh well, eventually.

                Lee,

                I went to WineHQ.org and did a search for the first error, and found
                this answer:

                "If you're still seeing these messages with Wine 0.9.44 that means
                that you need to regenerate your ~/.wine either by removing it, or by
                running wineprefixcreate."
                SOURCE: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9323

                This will probably only resolve the error messages. Try it and see if
                it helps your NoteTab issue.

                Let us know if this helps.

                  Larry,

                  Thanks. I went ahead and removed Wine and then re-installed it and NoteTabPro. (I had to use 5.0 as 5.5 didn't work well.) No change as far as the cursor problem. I also tried the external monitor. No change.

                  Everything else seems to work pretty well except for the cursor problem and I can't print. It seems to bring up the print window but just freezes. The printer set-up says "dummy state, dummy status", etc. (The printer works on the rest of the system.) That's not that big of a deal, though. It's just the cursor movement that is a bit strange.

                    Lee,

                    I just loaded NoteTab Pro and Light 5.5 and no problems, other than
                    the flashing and the cursor at the bottom of the page in Pro.

                    I just printed from both programs and both printed just fine.

                    This is on the Slackware 12 PC, the Debian Etch does not have access
                    to the printer.

                    I am using CUPS for printing, what is your Ubuntu using? I would
                    suspect something is off with your printer setup or the way Wine
                    interfaces.

                    Did you use the apt-get GUI, synaptic, or apt-get from the command
                    line to install Wine?

                    If you used synaptic, I suggest that you go to the Debian/Ubuntu page
                    at WineHQ and copy the CLI command into a shell window and see if
                    there is some message about a minor issue with Wine installing on your
                    system.

                    By default Debian had a very old version of Wine available, and the
                    "user-friendly" Synaptic would not remove the old conflicting part and
                    install the new version. I had to do one step at a time and get the
                    old version of Wine completely uninstalled, then I could install Wine.

                    I do not know what version is available to Ubuntu by default, or if it
                    picks up the latest version of Wine automatically.

                    Lastly, was Ubuntu installed on the laptop as a clean install, or was
                    it a partitioning of an existing Windows install? Or was it a newer
                    version of Ubuntu upgrading an older version?

                    I have found that upgrading Linux will work, but the crevices of the
                    install are flaky. This is with Red Hat, Fedora, and Slackware that I
                    have updated from one version to the next. A clean install is the
                    simplest. If you have a separate partition for /home, then it is
                    really easy, and you do not have to reload all the settings for your
                    programs, just install any programs that are not in the initial install.

                    There has got to be an explanation for your issues.

                    It is one of those issues that will either be a royal pain to resolve,
                    or once we finally stumble across the answer, will be so simple, we
                    will wonder why we didn't think of it.

                    I use Windows all day long at work, but I'm not sure what parallel in
                    Linux to suggest. Something weird like this in Windows, and it would
                    be check the 'net for new video drivers, or format C: and start fresh. ;-)


                    I'll keep at it periodically, and see if anything ever crops up.
