As the title explains, I have been attempting to install Wine on my laptop which is running 12.10. When I access the command terminal and entered
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
I was of course met by a password block, when I attempted to enter my password, it flat out wouldn't let me type anything, the only key that got a response from the terminal was "enter" which was met by "incorrect password". To bypass this issue I backed out and used the
gksudo command, this new dialogue box seemed to give me access to sudo commands.
I then entered
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get install wine1.5.
Up until the installation everything went fine, but after entering the final command (still using
gksudo) The terminal read "the following packages have unmet dependencies" and proceeded to list a bunch of "recommends"
So my guess is that Wine hasn't been updated to run on 12.10... Is this true, and is there any other way to open .exe's?
Also what was with that funky password mishap?
I'm totally new to Ubuntu so I've just been using support pages and tutorials, sorry if I'm a bit naive in these matters...
