Wine fails to install correctly as there apparently are unresolved dependencies. Tried through the software center and terminal. Same problem. And I can't uninstall what's installed either.

I've followed steps I've found in other threads here, but they don't seem to remedy the problem. I still can't install the package completely, yet it appears in the menu, nor can I uninstall it, because the package is reported as not installed.

If anyone knows what to do, I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks. :)

Are you installing the 32bit version or 64bit version of Wine? –  Mitch Jun 26 '13 at 6:15
Hmmm... I don't know. I thought that was resolved automatically upon installation. Thanks for replying by the way. :) –  Ocean Jun 28 '13 at 12:09

I also set Wine to 32-bit mode: askubuntu.com/questions/136714/… –  david6 Jun 30 '13 at 3:06
Thanks guys. I'm a Kubuntu user myself, but my wife got impatient as she relies on some Windows software, so I ended up installing Linux Mint 15 where Wine installs without any issues (when installing on Kubuntu I was never asked to agree to the msfonts license thing, guess that's where it went wrong.). But I really appreciate you taking the time to help out. :) –  Ocean Jun 30 '13 at 11:01
