When I try to install wine 1.4 i get this errors:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

wine1.4: PreDepends: dpkg (>= pero 1.16.10ubuntu1 is to be installed
         Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) pero 2.17-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
         Depends: wine1.4-amd64 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu5) but 1.4.1-0ubuntu5 is to be installed
         Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu5) but it is not going to be installed

How can I fix it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What are the steps you took prior to this error? What exact command did you use (or what tool did you use)? Do you have some extra repositories added to your system? Please provide the output of apt-cache policy wine1.4 run from a terminal. Include all this new information in your question by editing it. – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 19:24

I recommend PlayOnLinux Install playonlinux. It's a user friendly version of Wine. You can install it from Ubuntu software Center.

This does not answer the question, but is merely a (personal, subjective) recommendation for an alternative to Wine. – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 19:26
@gertvdijk Sorry, I will post this sort of things in a comment from now on. – Jop V. Jun 23 '13 at 20:00
I understand what @gertvdijk is saying, but PlayOnLinux does allow you to install Wine Bottles of various versions very easily and could be a solution to the OP's problem. – earthmeLon Jun 23 '13 at 21:30
Also, it looks like PlayOnLinux isn't available for 13.04 at thist ime. See – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 21:43

To install Wine in Ubuntu 13.04, just click the correct architecture below

Install Wine 32bit Version 1.4.1 Install comixcursors-lefthanded

Install Wine 64bit Version 1.4 Install comixcursors-lefthanded

Note: Wine 64bit provides support for loading 64-bit x86 Windows applications, its listed for Ubuntu 12.10, I think the it will probably work with 13.04, but I'm not 100% sure, and may not work with 13.04.

Add this PPA to your ubuntu software centre.

Why? Wine 1.4 is in the main repositories! No need for a PPA here. – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 19:23
