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:
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.
