    Question ->Wine<- Problems


    Hello guyz!

    It's my first time posting here. Hey I have ubuntu installed in Innovek VirtualBox as I wanted to try this os, and I hear that Wine makes Ubuntu support all windows applications!

    Now the problem is that I tried all Debian packages here WineHQ .deb packages archive and nothing works properly!

    So I need help how to install Wine (or any other program like that) witch makes windows programs installable in linux. Please any suggests should be offline ways because I dunno how to connect linux on the net!

    Many thanks in advance!

    If you have the cdrom selected in the resopitories and having your ubuntu disk in then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine

    should work

    What do you mean the cd rom selected in the resopitories?
    Should I insert the ubuntu cd and then press this code (up there) while having the ".deb" package in desktop?

    I type the code and a message appears like that: "couldn't find the package, but there was report of other package. The wine is somewhere else or corrupted or..."
    What to do? When I press the wine file it appears an error. May my ubuntu is corrupted?

    And where the hell is repositories??? I told you I just installed linux I don't know what is that! Don't describe experienced instructions please. I just wanna install wine.
