    how to install wine on ubuntu ?

  • Kitson Lim

    How do I install wine? I am new in Linux, but I don’t know what is it all about, Ubuntu, and other stuffs. Well, what is a ‘terminal’ actually, how to do I use it? Is it ctrl+alt+t? Maybe that’s what I read. I am not sure but when I type in ‘apt-get install wine’, it just gave me an error saying

    ‘Package Wine is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, obsoleted, or is only available from another source’

    And in additional: ‘E: Package Wine has no installation candidate’

    I’m a newbie and I agree, please don’t treat me as someone who is making trouble and forcing me away. Kindly send some a guide to me through email without any means of harm.
