>I'm trying get a couple pieces of software we use at work so we can replace a bunch of aging Windows machines with Linux boxes, but I'm having a little trouble. I'll start with the potentially easiest problem first.
>One of the programs I'm trying to use is Lightspeed Virtual Terminal. It runs fairly well with just a couple of glitches. If I go to the directory it was installed to, either in the terminal or the file browser, and run it with the "Wine Program Loader" menu option, or 'wine lsvt.exe' it opens normally. However, if I try to create a link or a launcher for it, it doesn't load the fonts and comes up looking awful.
>How can I fix this?
Use a laucher which calls a Unix script that sets the directory and then calls wine lvst.exe. This is how programs are supposed to be run with Wine.
