> Hi, folks.
> I'm new to both Ubuntu Linux and Wine.
> I've been running Lotus Ami Pro for years under Windows 98 and have about 70MB of Ami Pro files. Nowadays, though, printers are not made to support Windows 98 anymore.
> I had heard about WINE, and rather than buy another Microsoft product, I decided to see if I could run Ami Pro under another OS. My new printer works perfectly under Linux, so that's not a problem.
> Abiword can open Ami Pro files, but only if they do not contain tables or frames. Well, tables and frames are pretty damn important and 90% of my documents have one or the other.
> Ami Pro runs under Windows 3.1 so I figured it would work perfectly under WINE. It doesn't use the registry and only has a couple of .ini files you need to put in the WINDOWS directory.
> Unfortunately when I try to run it under wine, the program opens but then when I move the mouse the cursor disappears if I move it into the area of the program window. Shortly after opening the window dims and I believe this means the program is not responding.
> I'm totally new to this application and operating system so I really have no idea how to make this work. Any help would be appreciated.
Off the top of my head: Have you tried different Windows versions in winecfg? (Applications tab) Have you tried running in a virtual desktop? (Graphics tab)
