How to install a .tar.gz (or .tar.bz2) file?

I have downloaded Wine-1.5.18.tar.bz2. I don't know how to install it on ubuntu 12.10. Please help me out of this problem. I don't want to install it from Ubuntu software center. I have the file that I have already downloaded.

You have two easy options:

  1. You install the one in the official repositories. Open Ubuntu software Center and search for wine and install it. Alternatively in a terminal type sudo apt-get install wine.

  2. If you wish to have the latest version you're better off adding the official wine ppa. In a terminal type: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa Followed by sudo apt-get update and finally sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks
