GrannyGeek: Off topic, but... Have you tried any of the recipe software written for Linux? If so, how did it fall short?
Yes, I have. I tried something whose name I have forgotten. It was a Java program and I don't think they're doing anything more with it. It was much less flexible and harder to use than MasterCook. There's another one I've heard of but have forgotten the name. It had a lot of dependencies (Gnome dependencies?) and was too hard to install. There were other things I didn't like.
Whatever I use would have to be able to import the recipes from MasterCook, including categories. I don't want to do the work all over. MasterCook exports in standard formats--actually, the MasterCook text format is considered a sort of standard.
MasterCook worked just about perfectly under Wine until I tried it today. I hadn't installed Wine on VL6 since the release candidates, so I don't know at what point things broke. I may remove the latest Wine and go back to an older version to see if that fixes it. I do know that some programs that worked well with earlier Wines may stop working on a later Wine. Or I may just wait until Final comes out and work things out then. It should be pretty soon, I think.
If you know of good recipe managers for Linux, let me know what they are. I haven't looked in quite a while.
