How do I install Wine on Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn?

  1. I have a computer that I need to get windows apps working on. It is a SiS (I Guess), and has 256 Ram with a Geforce2 MX400 graphics card. It has an AMD Turon * Ithink* 700 MHz cpu.


    I have no knowledge of Linux. AT ALL.

    I downloaded the source from a site and put it on the cd and then put it onto the computer. (no modem, so no net)

    Can anyone tell me EXACTLY how to do this? I have tried some of the terminal stuff and gotten completely lost. This is a fresh copy of Linux, so nothing has been changed. I would like to get C&C Generals working because I wann know how it is gonna run.

    Thanks.

    Please. Don't bother with the source.

    Now, the magic: search google for ubuntu wine. You will get a page like this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine

    Quite amazingly, they doin't lie and that's how you get Wine on Ubuntu.

    Thanks Nodsu, but I have already googled. The big problem is that I don't have internet on that computer and so I can't download/install anything the way that wants me to. Is there a place I can download a installer type thing on this computer (xp) and burn it, then place it on the other one?

    You can download the Wine .deb file and install it manually using dpkg.

    Ok, I got that computer back (long story) and I got the .deb file. I "install the package" using that file, no terminal.

    I finally figured it out....

    I can now run syspec, AVG anti spyware (it installed, at least) ;)
