[Wine] Dead keyboard

Well, with that there is progress. It is a bit late for me here though 
(Argentina) and will have to study this out a bit more tomorrow.

But two new things happened with that last suggestion you made. One is 
that a "Wine" window came up, something that did not happen before, and 
also the keyboard works. So I will have to play with things tomorrow to 
see just where I am, but it is enouraging!!

One interesting thing is that it takes a long time for the program to 
load, and the Terminal window has a long line of the following:


And then when it closes there are a list of lines like this:

fixme:font:WineEngRemoveFontResourceEx :stub

My uneducated impression is that it is saying that it lacks certain 
fonts, and the solution would be to install a better font collection 
that would satisfy the documents that I call up.

Anyway, I will get back on this tomorrow.

Again, thanks!
