  1. Hi!

    I just can't get it to work properly, I followed the istructions on the Wine HQ site...I even tried the alternative (on Wine HQ site) but it just woan't work :/

    I can find wine in System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager but it fails...

    <i>W: Failed to fetch http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/dists/hardy/Release.gpg Could not connect to wine.budgetdedicated.com:80 (81.171.111.184). - connect (111 Connection refused)

    What to do?

    What about getting it from Add/Remove?

    Try,

    In terminal run:

    Code:
    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys $KEY
    
    then

    Code:
    gpg --export --armor $KEY | sudo apt-key add -
    
    where $KEY is key value you have missed. Do those 2 commands for each repository which you have problem.

    May work.

    you will have to download wine from a different repository than the one ubuntu has defaulted to.from synaptic click "packages'', than "reload" and you should get a list of other repositories from which to down load "stuff" from.The repo your were using is broken.
