The latest installation instructions for Wine
Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Wine 1.7.8 has been recently released. Among others, it comes with an updated version of the Mono package, improves the BITS service implementation, has better data tables for Japanese vertical fonts support and many bugfixes.
In this article I will show you how to install Wine 1.7.8 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pear OS 8, Pear OS 7 and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it will be soon available via PPA, installing Wine 1.7.8 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pear OS and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the wine1.7 and winetricks packages. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks
After folling your instructions for the install I get this popup window for “read and agree” I could not find a way to “AGREE”. the (ok) at the bottom of the screen did not work.
When I closed the window it said the installion will stop.
Use tab to select OK, and press Enter to confirm
