I'm totally new to elementary OS and Linux. I've decided to have a go at elementary as the OS for a new self build media PC.
I'm pretty chuffed that I've muddle along so far and got quite a few things working. One of the main requirements before ditching the idea and opting for Windows 10 was to get music sounding pretty good. On my previous media PC I used
Winamp set on full treble and bass preset equaliser and that's what I was trying to replicate.
So I've done an adjusted copy
PulseAudio conf file and tweaked ALSA. I then experimented with importing
Winamp equaliser presets into Audacious. I then found out that I could use Wine and install some Windows stuff, so this is what I've done and installed
Winamp - and comparing
Wimanp next to each other then, once again,
Winamp just wins out.
However, this is all at the very edge of my understanding anything about Linux. I installed Wine through AppCenter and it said in there that it was installed. But when I clicked on the
Winamp.exe then Wine was not there as the default program, nor was it in the list to chose from as an alternative program. So, I found out that I had to navigate to the
.exe folder using the terminal and then typing wine
Now, when I open appcenter I keep getting this fetch error:
E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file. W: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. W: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details
No matter how many times I hit Ignore it pops up again after a few seconds and it making appcenter pretty much unusable.
How can I correct for this error? Do I uninstall
Wine and have another go? Do I have to uninstall
Winamp first if I do? Please bear in mind I don't understand much of the jargon of Linux, and my knowledge of most things is still pretty much zero. I vaguely understand that a ppa is an online set of files that get updated and so elementary goes to check for updates every so often. Googling this error message so far implies that Wine should not even have worked, so I don't know what's going on.
