>When I tried using the terminal I saw a couple complaints about starting the x server and changing the display mode.  I far as I can tell the x server is running and the display mode is 1024x768 and I have no clue as to how to change that nor any info as to what I should change it to.  Besides, if I did any of that, then what happens if I break the system and can't use it for anything else?  If I download and install the very latest version, then I end up with a new problem where the package manager won't recognize future updates for that package.  Not that it matters that much, I guess, as I have yet to find a software package that runs without issues under any release of Wine on any version of Linux.  If I do run into something that works, I don't have to wait very long for an update that breaks it.

Use a site like pastebin and then put the URL to the screen shot here.

Thank you.
