What version am I running?

The Splash screen gives the current Windows version, but you can check for the Linux package you have installed using the Help > About and looking toward the bottom of the screen. This will list the Linux packages that are installed.

Context Sensitive Help

The help files in FieldWorks Language Explorer open in ChmSee. There may still be places in FLEx where clicking on the context Help may not function properly.

Student Manuals

The student manuals should open successfully in OpenOffice or LibreOffice depending on your Ubuntu version.
