 :) An absolute newbie thrilled to escape from Losedows XP (Windows XP). Great to be able to use LL but am finding it hard to run REMIND software. It says its loaded but I cant find it. Other software has loaded ok. Suspect I have missed some of the package?

I have been using Cute Reminder whilst in Windows but could not get Wine to recognise it.

Can anyone help a 70 yr oldbie please?

I am not on my Linux-Lite computer right now in my motorcycle shop. But the commands I listed work in Linux-Lite also.

The only reason I touch a Windows computer is to tune a motorcycle. Wine is no good for this and Windows needs to be running for me to do this. So I cannot help you with that.  I am a Linux only computer user. I drink wine, but, do not use it on any of my linux  computers.

Sorry, happy trailz and welcome to linux-lite. Rok

Hi tonybaker,

Welcome to LinuxLite and congrats to your courage! :) You won't regret it.

I'm not using remind myself, just had a quick look.
If you only have 'remind' installed then you would need to use the remind scripting language in a terminal/ on the command line to use it. However there is a graphical frontend available, called tkremind. If you install this you should get a menu entry and a graphical interface as soon as you start it.

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to post back again.

All the best and lots of fun with LL :)
