I would REALLY appreciate help, as I need Wine for a couple sales quota tracking software which are Windows Native. And a couple games.

wine 1.4 is not good? is already in the repository – Ceppo93 Dec 16 '12 at 19:12

It seems that you need some libraries to run 32-bit applications. Run the following command:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

After that try to install again. If it still does not work, try to run

sudo apt-get -f install
