When I try to install wine through terminal, it throws the error:
nits@nits-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install wine Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: wine : Depends: wine1.6 but it is not going to be installed wine1.6-i386 : Depends: wine1.6 (= 1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~ppa1) but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Then trying to fix broken packages it shows:
nits@nits-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get -f install Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Correcting dependencies... Done The following extra packages will be installed: wine1.6 Suggested packages: dosbox The following NEW packages will be installed: wine1.6 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 2 not fully installed or removed.

I am also not able to remove broken packages. What to do? I have tried many solutions available on this topic but none of them is working. Winetricks is installed, it wouldn't work without Wine
