Has anyone got this little program to work???
I tried to install in on windows, and the linux environment program, just stalled. so twice, so its not working on my windows machine… also logged into my linux system, and it wont install under the adept package manager or the rpm
I can’t seem to get this to work, as I would like to convert a font to TTF to add in FLIR for a client (as a nice touch/ it will be the same as their launch newsletter), who’s site is going live 13th march…
can someone help?
on my computer I can boot into either windows or kubuntu, but it wont install in kubuntu

although I got linux and have had for a while, I am still really bad at learning it
You could learn it my way (I took courses on Minix back in school, for which is basic knowledge enough for Linux), or like everyone else, find every possible way to break everything, and then fix it one google at a time. :D
