Hi. I'm a real noob in linux and have just installed ubuntu 8.10. The question is how do I install WINE since I don't have access to the internet back home?

Thanx in advance

where are you located?

You can get the whole ubuntu repository on dvds from some companies too or try 'apton cd' in a friends pc ?

If you have the .deb package, then
use gdebi or

#sudo dpkg -i wine*.deb
