See Why is Wine not installable on my system? and How do I resolve unmet dependencies? ...also, just in case, make sure you're running sudo apt-get update before sudo apt-get install wine. If you try all the suggestions that appear applicable in both those places and still need help, please edit this question to provide details of everything you tried and exactly what happened, as well as the output of lsb_release -a. (If we close this, an edit will get it reviewed for reopening.) –  Eliah Kagan Jan 17 at 6:39

In Terminal type these three commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine1.7

...now you should have the latest Wine 1.7 installed properly on your system...
