Re: [K12OSN] Shockwave and Wine or crossover odffice



Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, it looks like the
instructions are for the Windows version of Firefox.
Macromedia says they do not support shockwave on
Linux. I sent them an email asking that it be ported
over. In the meantime, I tried out crossover office
and that works like a charm. Too bad it is a pay for
solution. The good news is that the licensing is for
concurrent users; very liberal compared with other
companies (like the one in the pacific northwest).
This looks like the way to go. I think wine is too
much work on my own.
