This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to install wine but there are a lot of dependencies, which I can't remove.

If I choose no, them even more dependencies are asked to be removed.

Any idea how to install it?

rodhash@preciousSS:~$ sudo aptitude install wine

  • I'm wondering if it's because I'm using a Ubuntu 64 bits.. any idea: – rodhash Mar 18 '13 at 6:04

there are a number of things, first you can use terminal commands to run and update your version of Ubuntu(you must be online) or you can download ALL dependencies and run it offline, like i am tryting to do. though, it would be easier to use internet, god knows not all of us has 24/7 acess, so try the terminal commands if you can, there should be plenty of articles to help you out.

  • Sounds like a lot of time wasted.... – mdpc Jun 22 '13 at 5:10
