Hello Everyone, As I am new to the forum I hope this is the proper protocol. I am working on another core issue on another thread, yet feel we are close to completion. Then I will have this new topic, and I thought the proper protocol is to start a new thread. Firstly, I am working on moving from Windows 7 to Mint with a duel boot, yet if I could run my windows based programs in Linux it would be optimum. So when I fix my boot issues I will need a way to run windows programs in Linux. Also the inspiration for this move to Linux at this time is that my cursor is jumping around, making me crazy. I've tried all the fixes. de-selecting the touchpad, can't remember if I discovered how to disable touchpad. Leaving the arrow off the working window seems to work in Linux but not in windows. So any ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated as well. Priority is windows programs in Linus. Thanks all.
