I like to use Linux all the time. Unfortunately, often you need to use Windows to do all sorts of tasks. This is particularly galling when a publicly funded institution such as a University requires you to use Windows to run software that is needed for the course. If you're doing a course in statistics, for example, you might be required to use Minitab.
Fortunately, you can use Minitab on Linux. If it comes on a CD, mount the CD and explore it. There will be a file called something like 'SETUP.EXE'. Execute it with wine:
This should install Minitab on your fake 'c' drive. Then you can run it doing something like:
wine ~/.wine/c/Program Files/MTBWINST/MTB12ST.EXE
On my system, I was relieved to find that Minitab runs flawlessly. That's one less reason to boot into Windows!
thanks, but how about the registration though????
does this need registration stuff? because minitab is shareware.
simple and nice tutorial :D :D :D :D
Hi I ve just been trying to install minitab on ubuntu. When I start it it says (in french cause i m frnech : "Not possible to get the licence information.Make sure that the product is installed correctly (33)". It s my translation. Do you know how i could fix that? Is it a dependency? I m gonny try to start it from a command line to see the error. Thank s . Galibrel
