    I’m too noob to know what either of those things are. I looked them up and I’m still scratching my head lol

    Yesterday was only my second time logging onto the Linux box, so I have a lot to learn.

    I tried on both wine and playonlinux, but had the same issue both times. So I’ll try a simple text editor or something and see if that works.

    I really don’t wanna have to go back to Windows.

      Kitra is a different drawing program native to linux. Linux also has native text editors, is there a reason you need these specific windows programs or would an alternative work, like gedit instead of windows notepad?

        The text editor I’ll try just to see if I’m doing the installation properly, nothing else.

        I paid for SAI and I’ve used it for about 15 years. I really love it. My artwork is all saved in SAI format. Worst case, I’ll have to install it on the windows hard drive.

      So you’re brand new to Linux and you’re already hacking away at something you don’t understand well. Good for you! That’s how you learn 😊.

      That being said, getting (as you’re learning) and keeping software running in wine can be frustrating. I’d suggest using an open source alternative if possible. Hopefully the one others recommended is a good fit for you. And a bonus, one less piece of proprietary software you rely on, which imo is always a good feeling.

      Good luck, and welcome to Linux!

        Thanks, man. Well it’s on its own hd and I don’t have anything important on it, so why not mess around. I’ve been wanting a Linux box since 2000 haha finally got my dream.

        Do you reckon it’s worth trying to install any of these? XD

        I got notepad++ to install via play on Linux, so I think it’s just this particular program that’s not cooperating.

        This is the exact same issue I’m having. In the end I just installed all my art stuff on Windows :(

          With Linux 99% of the time you should use the software repository or “store” or “Discover”. You’ll get the latest supported version on your Linux, it takes care of updating, and in my experience it’s worlds more reliable than Windows store. Also poke around and see what’s available; it’s all free software and should be perfectly safe.

              sudo is “super user do”. The equivalent of Run as Administrator in Windows for whatever command suffixes it. Ideally you don’t want to use this unless you have to, but it might take some time to learn where that line is.

              What they’re talking about is a gui based software installer. I assume it runs the dnf or apt or whatever commands for you.

          Oh man trying to run old Linux software on a modern distro would be a painful experience!

          Your desktop environment may already come with a capable text editor with syntax highlighting and all that. You should give a go.
