[Rpcemu] I'm baffled

As my Mico was getting old, and could not cope with broadband, my
sons provided me a year ago with an old "windows" box running Ubuntu
0.8. ,on which I installed RPCEmu 0,8.2, which allowed me to run my
favourite progs from the Mico, albeit all very slowly.
Now I have "upgraded" to a new Acer running Ubuntu 0.9. I used a
USB stick to transfer settings and also the Emu programme to the new
machine- but as I rather thought, it would not run. So I redid from
scratch, and it all ran, but only in a small window.
I tried to alter the window settings via the boot, but got a
message "Filing system EMUFS must be given a filename". I also noticed
on startup that not all the usual messages appeared, with the final one
being something to the effect "Out of range ...." before the initial
HOWEVER, by chance I opened the original copy on the USB. and
inadvertently clicked on the Emu run-file,(or whatever it is called in
Linux), and Lo and behold, everything loaded and worked , but extremely
quickly compared to the old machine! Why should it work from one source,
but not from another? The only drawback that I can see is that to
transfer a PDF file for printing I need to transfer from the USB to the
Home folder before I can activate the printing system.
Explanations or suggestions welcome.
