Link not working to upload wine on Ubuntu

Post by kip » Wed Nov 16, 2011 5:27 am

Hello, just put ubuntu onto my old laptop yesterday - my first try at linux - and I'm having trouble putting wine onto my machine. I've followed the guide here http://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu and all was well until I tried clicking on the install link. Are the links not working or is it just me? Is there somewhere else I could download it from?

Try the alternative command-line instructions at the bottom of that page.

Yes! Got it working and started windows program. One thing though. Do you have to install the program every time you use it? or if not where is it stored, can't find it?

Unless you specified a different wineprefix, your apps are installed in ~/.wine. Set your file manager to show hidden files.
