    Question wine & linux noob.. small problem


    Hi there,

    So I have successfully installed wine into my distro (Xandros 3.0.2). Attempting to follow the tutorial to convert any of the Macromedia Studio 8 apps to work on wine from here

    http://bkcreation.info/Blog_Macromedia8OnWine.html

    The last step is somewhat confusing to me. It says;

    - then export the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Macromedia/ key from your registry on windows XP ( "regedit" in execute ) and convert it to ascii using "$ recode ucs-2..ascii yourfile.reg" and run it in wine with "$ wine regedit yourfile.reg"
    So I exported the registry key, left it in its form (.reg extension), and copied it over to my linux directory. Went to CLI and put in the "recode" command, however Linux has no "recode" command. What do you suppose this guy is trying to say to do here?

    *p.s.- I'm still a linux noob as well

    Got it to read as an ascii file now. Had to do some CLI trickery that is very new to me. I commented on the guys blog since now it presents a new problem. If anyone is interested in getting a run down on how to do this (with better english), just let me know and I will post it in this thread.
