      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.
