    Unhappy Help out a complete and total n00b with wine


    Hey, I'm running Ubuntu 6.06 (and I've been using it for about a week) and I'm trying to install wine. I have not installed anything that was not automatically installed with the distro CD. I went to winehq.org and followed their instructions for Debian, here: http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb

    I followed all instructions above "Getting source packages from repository", and ending with "...mark all upgrades should update Wine to the newest version." But now that I've done that, I have absolutely no idea what to do. Please guide me in the right direction.

    All those steps are really unecessary. Simply typing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine
    should be enough.

    Then
    Code:
    winecfg
    will configure it.

    From this working "wine" installation, you can run .exe like that :
    Code:
    wine some_file.exe

    Thank you! I eventually just typed in "wine" to the terminal and found that it was working, and I found where my .exe was. Thanks for helping me.
