Installing Wine on Ubuntu


Alternative Command Line Instructions for Installing Wine:

It is also possible to add the Wine PPA and install via the terminal. This may be useful on Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and other Ubuntu derivatives.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
Then update APT’s package information by running ‘sudo apt-get update‘. You can now install Wine by typing ‘sudo apt-get install wine1.3‘.

Warning: Beta packages

The 1.3 packages here are beta packages. This means they will periodically suffer from regressions, and as a result an update may break functionality in Wine. If the stable 1.2 Wine version works for you, then you may not want to use these beta packages.
