>I'm new to using Wine. I'm running UBUNTU 8.04 on a Dell B130/1300 laptop. Ubuntu seems to running fine. I uploaded Motorola Phone tools with no problem using the Wine installer. The program launched ok and even went to the internet an downloaded and installed the updates.
>The problem is it doesn't see my usb port. How do I get Wine to use the usb port?
>Also I get no sound out when I use winecfg in the audio tab. I've tried all the choices and when I hit TEST, no sound at all.
>Thanks in advance.
(1) Try going into winecfg and changing the sound from alsa to oss. See if this helps with sound and device recognition. I have a USB sound device, and it only works with wine/oss.
(2) Install alsa-oss and see if that helps.
(3) Check to see if Ubuntu recognizes your USB device outside the wine environment. Mine was only recognized recently by Ubuntu, and I run 8.10. If not, check Ubuntu bugs.
