I am using Maverick Meerkat (10.10). It has Wine 1.2. I followed the instructions at WinHQ for updating wine. In Synaptic Package Manager, the highest version I get now for upgrading is 1.3, not 1.5.
How can I get upgrade to Wine 1.5? I do not want to upgrade the Ubuntu version.
It seems that some of the supporting libraries such as lib6 are old. I would like to know how I can update them so as to make Wine 1.5 available.
Update: After adding the PPA, I was able to get Wine 1.4, even though Synaptic Software Manager listed it as 1.3. The reason I wanted the latest wine was to install the Encyclopedia Britannica DVD. I got it installed in Windows and started using the installation folder from Wine. Prior to that, I had to run Windows flash installer in Wine. So, this problem is already solved.
