Ubuntu / Re: Installing WINE 1.5.1 in Ubuntu 32bit and 64bit

Hi mark why can't I get itunes to at least play music like you did. Followed the instructions perfectly and my itunes installs and looks a mess? What did you do to set it up for audio playback?

Cheers Chris

Will probably have a go at doing this when I stick peppermint on my laptop, was that impressed by it going to have a go at using this as my main os for a while.

Cheers. I thought it was security related but your explanations have clarified that. And yes to an inexperienced computer user the world wide web is a dangerous place to go hunting for software therefore it is a better model than windows but as you said when the software is not free the model is some what harder to change to. This could be a avoided though if Microsoft didn't want a cut of every developers pie!!

I'll have look at it when I have some free time. Whys does linux do this, instead of having something like windows does with .exe and install straight away.

Wouldn't know where to start to compile it. What's a PPA I'm still on the Linux learning curve, is this compiling thing hard?

Ahh something to look forward to then, any known release date for this?  Not a big fan of itunes but set a linux machine up for my dad and he listens to podcasts alot and I can't really find a better way to get them other than itunes, some websites only offer download through itunes. Set gpodder up works well with the bbc ones but about as far it goes.

Hi, new here.

Just writing to thank you. Been having trouble installing wine from software manager in peppermint, said it was installed but couldn't find it anywhere. Ran the updates and its appeared in the menu. Cheers!

Question a bit off topic regarding wine in peppermint. What is the success rate of getting itunes to work within it?
