Just wanted to say, y'all aren't very helpful. You assume an ability to manipulate this system like you do. Not all of us are nuts & bolts guys, some of us just want our systems to work.
Xubuntu 12.04/Ubuntu 12.04 dual-boot
Processor: Intel® Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2390 @ 1.86GHz × 2
Graphics: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller
I need to install dotnet 2.0 in Wine, I can't because it won't work on a 64bit system. I've tried all of your suggestions and get nothing but error messages, and I still can't install dotnet20 to run this Windows application for work. I share this issue with another person I work with who also runs Ubuntu 12.04
I don't care if **"The built-for-64bit package of Wine is 32bit. It's practically the same as the 32bit package, it just pulls in extra things like ia32-libs to allow it to run on a 64bit arch.
Windows programs run inside the standard package of Wine are therefore limited to 32bit.
In short: you don't need to do anything."**
If I had enough reputation I'd downvote your answer to this question as completely useless. There is an issue,so obviously we DO need to do something...
It would be nice if someone who knows what they're doing could answer this question for a couple of lowly Linux users who're not nuts & bolts Linux "masters"
A solution isn't a solution when it creates more problems.
