Ehh.. it didn't take a lot of time to rediscover wine after I made a huge switch to ubuntu last month. After all, there isn't any reason now to keep running windows. I've managed to run the following softwares so far:
1. Adobe Photoshop 7
2. Macromedia Flash 8
3. Macromedia Dreamweaver 8
4. Winrar
5. Flashget
but there was a little problem with Picasa 2.6!... Basically I couldn't use the web upload feature... It just wasn't recognizing that I had an internet connection. Damn that sucks.
After reinstalling, looking into database and all, I found the error wasn't in Picasa at all but in wine itself due to a bug in wininet library... after some trial, I found that the default wine on the ubuntu repository was slightly older wine 0.9.22 I tried updating and it worked..
the commands?

1. Getting the apt-get list
$sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
2. getting it updated
$ sudo apt-get update
3. installing / or in this case updating
$sudo apt-get install/upgrade wine
Hmm.. still wondering whatever happened to flash... isn't working now... seems to be effect of Beryl... still can't get it working...
