Demo songs. (OK OK I only tested one).
Export to MP3 (took awhile longer than expected, like 11 minutes for a demo song that is about 4 minutes long, however I kept all of the export options default). The MP3 ran well.
What does not
What was not tested
Basically only spent like 3 minutes on it.
And waited 11 minutes for an MP3 to export.
cd ~ rm -fr .wine #clear everything export WINEARCH=win32 #for 64-bit machines. Those below says this helps. #I always do this to get a good clean WINEPREFIX setup, there is probably a # better way: wine notepad.exe #& then close it when it (notepad) opens. #download/get winetricks and then: chmod +x winetricks ./winetricks corefonts ./winetricks droid fonts ./winetricks tahoma fonts #download/get the latest FL demo/whatever (mine is flstudio_12.4.2.exe) cd ~/Downloads/ #*sigh* yes this is where Firefox puts my downloads wine flstudio_12.4.2.exe # & in the install it is recommended to uncheck the ASIO4ALL in the # installation options/check-boxes. #& once the installation process is done... cd ~ cd '.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Image-Line/FL Studio 12' wine FL.exe

The FL Studio UI can sometimes go haywire if you workspaces in your desktop environment - the audio engine works and events are handled (for example, space still plays/pauses the project) but the UI is frozen.
