Installing Wine on Ubuntu is relatively straightforward. If you have ever wanted to run Windows software as an Ubuntu application, you will be pleased to learn that running Windows applications through Wine is just a few clicks away.
To install Wine on Ubuntu, one can use a graphic program like Synaptic or Adept, the package manager for Kubuntu. Simply search for "wine", select it, and click apply. This will mark the base package for installation. If you want to check everything, you will want to ensure other packages are available: winbind, libwbclient, samba-common, smbclient, cabextract, libmpg123-0, ttf-mscorefonts-installer, and ttf-symbol-replacement. You don't need to select these, Ubuntu will take care of it for you when you mark wine for installation.
If you would rather not use the graphic program for the installation, you can use either Apt-Get or Aptitude to affect the installation. Both use the same basic syntax, but Aptitude tends to sort out program dependencies better. Invoke Apt-Get in the following way:
sudo apt-get install wineor use Aptitude as follows:
sudo aptitude install wineAfter entering your password, you may be prompted for dependencies and conflicts. If you allow Ubuntu to install all the software needed for Wine, you will be all set. If you use aptitude, you will also be warned of possible conflicts with existing packages. These need to be resolved before installing Wine. If no such conflicts come up, you are good to proceed. Installing Wine on Ubuntu is that simple.
