Installing Spotify and Wine on Debian


I just got an ee PC today with Debian (not sure which brand it is, its 4.11.1-21 or something if I  recall)

Anyway I believe that Im supposed to be typing all the stuff into alt ctrl t or whatever?(seriously , that's how new I am to it)

Anyway I'm not a hacker or anything so I'm not trying to majorly edit my computer, I just want it for internet, music and word processing BUT the main music thing I use is spotify at the minute. 

So I go on the website and it doesnt support linux but it says I can install it via Wine so off I t rot and type in $ sudo aptitude install wine and this doesnt work so I try it without the $ and hey presto it seems to install some kind of  thing and then I go ahead and try $ winecfg and it doesnt do anything so I remove the $ again. I get Bash: winecfg: command not f ound.

So I try and install windows spotify anyway, get confused, then try and install a different version  of Wine, dont know what Debian Im using, get lost.

Help? Be patronising, I have no idea what I'm doing.

go get latest Wine from www.winehq.org and install it.

then retry winecfg

Also, you don't type the $. If you notice the prompt says:
Code:
username@computername~$
The $ is already there.
