    Final Fight Bible Radio

    Hello Terri, I do not attend that church as they are in Oregon and I in New York. All I know of them is from what I have read on their website.

    Final Fight Bible Radio

    My new favorite radio station is Final Fight Bible Radio. I am in no way, shape or form associated outside of Christ with this radio station. This station does not play contemporary christian music and that's all I'm going to say about that. www.finalfightbibleradio.com From their site: Do you...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    Linux does not support wingdings fonts, only webdings. I think not much outside of MS supports wingdings.

    I installed it on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS with wine-1.6.2 without any issues and everything works. Well everything I use including audio works.

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    I received the Scourby CD, copied over the mp3 files and was able to play them in SwordSearcher. I noticed that if I just clicked on the speaker next to the verse nothing happened. If I held down the Shift key and click it plays the verse. If I click on Play at the bottom of the screen it starts...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    I needed some more Chemex filters so I ordered the Scourby CD and got the free shipping from Amazon. It should arrive within a week to six months and I'll check it out. The widgets look ok to me. I have never used SwordSearcher in Windows so I really don't know if they are different. If you have...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    Ok I am quite confident these instructions will work for anyone running either a 32 or 62 bit version of Linux. Well I'm at least trying to sound confident. If you are running a 32 bit version of Linux you can skip step 3. WARNING: If you do run step 3 and have any previous Windows programs...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    I have to agree with Brandon it is a bit tricky to get SS installed. I just installed it on a 64 Bit version of Ubuntu and I have no idea what I did to finally get it working. I did only use wine and winetricks though. It took about an hour or so, but it can be done.

    Prayer for Little Warriors of the Lord

    Please pray for Matthew and Benjamin, two little warriors of the Lord who entered the battle a little too early. They were born 3 months prematurely and are currently in the NICU. Also keep their parents, Ed and Lois, in prayer that the peace of God may be upon them in this difficult time.

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    Some kind of error handling the 32 bit windows code. I have no idea what is the problem, I would think a resource issue. I have a netbook I use to load crazy stuff on to just to see if I can and I was able to load ie7 on that with winetricks. I was think of trying to load SS on an android device...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    I installed Ubuntu version 12.10 and then ran the Ubuntu updates. Followed the steps above and the installed full version of SS v. 6.2 without any issues. At step 3 I could not run winetricks from the search prompt so I did a Ctrl + Alt + t and ran it from the command line, worked fine. After...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    Hello Peter, I'm sure you have this issue resolved, but I figured this may help some others. I'm only running SS 6.0.1, but assume it will work for newer versions. I just ordered the latest version and once I have it I will install it on a clean version of Ubuntu since that is what...

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    I was able to install SwordSearcher 6 without any issues on PCLinux OS 2010 running wine-1.1.44 and the instructions for wine tricks and it runs without any issues. I also see that MyNotes is also now working which is nice.

    SwordSearcher on Linux

    Re: SwordSearcher 5 on Linux Thanks for the fix. I tried the install and just went back to version 5. I wasn't planning to look at it for a month or so. I appreciate you took the time to figure it out, thanks again.
