RE: [K12OSN] Wine Problem



I've had the same problem lately. I've had to incorporate Reading Counts! and SRI into my K12LTSP lab. I've just been running the exe from a shared local folder and making sure the dll's are in all the users .wine, using /ect/skel/ . It works for me, but I don't know if you'd be able to do the same. I have a related question but I'll start a new thread.

Does your boss know that MS Office 2000 is not much longer for this
world, in terms of support and bug fixes?

I don't like it, but I trust that when the teachers have openoffice and office2k to compare, the choice will be obvious. Nevertheless, I am having a problem getting wine working for multiple users. I made a directory under /usr/local/wineapps and symlinked that to ~/.wine for my user account. I installed office and it runs perfectly under my username. My thinking was that I could make /usr/local/wineapps read only and make a symlink to it from every other user's ~/.wine directory. When I tried this out, it told me that the product wasn't installed. Has anyone seen this before or come up with a good solution for using office2k on k12ltsp? I am running k12ltsp 6, x64.
