    Problems installing wine


    I can't seem to get wine to instal. I am trying to install Wine 1.5.5 and am using LDME Cinamon. I was told to run in the terminal the following:
    sudo dpkg -i libwine*

    and I get the following result:

    dpkg-split: error: error reading libwine: Is a directory
    dpkg: error processing libwine (--install):
    subprocess dpkg-split returned error exit status 2
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    libwine

    Thank you for any help.

    Are you trying to install Wine from source?
    Why not install from the software repos with either apt-get or synaptic?

    I downloaded the binaries from the wine site for debian, and package manager said they were installed as they were downloaded. Maybe that was all I needed to do and the other stuff is redundant. I am new to linux so am still learning.
