Has any body managed to install metatrader4 on ubuntu15 using wine? Because I have trouble installing it. Thanks,
cd ~ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-staging wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks chmod +x winetricks WINEARCH=win32 winetricks --isolate mt4
I just successfully installed MetaTrader 4 on Ubuntu 16.04, using the command provided by Michael. Thanks, Michael! I've been struggling for a while.
Just want to add one more comment, rm ~/.wine folder after using his command, this will clean all the mess of previous installations. (maybe difficult if you have already installed some applications on wine). And then run the installation executable downloaded from MT4 official site. That works for me.
Here are the commands to install Wine:
type dpkg-reconfigure && dpkg-reconfigure debconf -f noninteractive dpkg --add-architecture i386 apt-get install -qy python-software-properties curl -s https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key | apt-key add - add-apt-repository -y https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ apt-get install -qy --install-recommends wine-staging winehq-staging

Above steps are based on the recent Wine packaging related changes.

I have also received a lot of errors from wine when installing mt4 on ubuntu x64 again and again. Sometimes I formated my PC again and again.
But then I had understood how to install and open.
Should be installed wine32 if you use x64, and winetricks.
winetricks parameter "--isolate mt4". But you should install the mt4.exe file of your own broker. Then it will work :)
