Looking at most (all?) tutorials on how to install Windows apps into Ubuntu, they instruct to add the
ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa repository, and then install the latest wine (currently
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.5
Wine is also available in the official repositories, and the following command works (without having to add a new repository):
sudo apt-get install wine
So. Why should I prefer the ppa? What is missing in the official wine that I should use the ppa instead?
