@user68186 Downloading files from random websites is risky, it has nothing to do with a program being open source or not. –  Flimm Dec 2 '12 at 14:25

1 Answer 1

You have two easy options:

  1. You install the one in the official repositories. Open Ubuntu software Center and search for wine and install it. Alternatively in a terminal type sudo apt-get install wine.

  2. If you wish to have the latest version you're better off adding the official wine ppa. In a terminal type: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa Followed by sudo apt-get update and finally sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks
