well, after Microsoft withdrew support for XP and my computer running at a speed which would irritate an arthritic tortoise decided to make the change. Currently dual boot

Any other Linux users out there.

At the moment cannot seem to run any programs installed under Windows such as PSE or Faststone how does one do this? Advice appreciated

I have two pc's, with one pc having Linux Ubuntu as the operating system.
If you want to use a windows program on an Linux Pc you have to install wine.
Take a look here for native programs on Linux like Fasstone.
Gimp is free (both on windows and linux) so take a look at the program.

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!

I can help with general Linux questions, but I don't have experience with any Linux replacements for photo editing software (I'm a technical guy).

thanks for above, have installed it as a dual OS the other Win XP, in trying to find drivers for a scanner seem to have installed carp or bloatware on starting XP message "the volume is dirty" CHKDSK runs before a reboot & XP loads but often slowly to the point of freezing due to such things as "unresponsive script" or "connection timed out"

Told Linux not very "user friendly" but managed to get online without any problems

the scanner is a zennox if anyone knows a source of a replacement driver disk
