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
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
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.
