Or the GUI package manager......I think Ubuntu now gives you the choice of Synaptic or Adept.

Have you tried the Synaptic or Adept package manager? First, you should verify that at least one repository is set up, and then use the refresh (or reload) button to get the latest database into your computer. Once all is set up, you can search on keywords to find what you need.

Take the time to learn the package manager--it is one of the central strengths of Linux.

Have you tried looking at the Wine "Ubuntu Installation Page"... The answer on how to install it is right there.. It walks you through adding the wine repository, the gpg Key, and then installing. Spend about 20sec cutting and pasting into a terminal, and you'll have wine in no time..

http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

You can use the GUI part, but the terminal and cutting/pasting is easier, just follow the 'Command Line Instructions for Installing Wine' After you get done and run "sudo apt-get update".. just run "sudo apt-get install wine"

Did you try "sudo apt-get install libaudio2" and then try it again? (Don't ask me why this isn't happening automatically.) Installing wine via apt-get is not a bad idea either, but I guess the package from winehq is bit more current, if you want that.

Yes i tried this and it returned saying that libaudio2 was not found and it was wanted by an external program (something like that).

Regarding IndyGunFreak

I can't install wine like that because currently i am not able to run the internet on Ubuntu, i downloaded wine using my winxp( which i dual boot with ubuntu), and saved that in one of windows drives and then used that to install wine in Ubuntu.

Now that we know that you don't have internet on Ubuntu, you could try this:
  • Download the libaudio2 package from the Ubuntu page here (choose amd64 if you have a 64 bit Ubuntu system installed, i368 if your Ubuntu system is 32 bit; if you are unsure, download both), from windows and choose a place that you can access from Ubuntu.
  • Then boot Ubuntu and open the file (if you downloaded both 64 and 32 bit packages, first try the 64 bit one then the other); AFAIK you can just open the file with the file browser and it will work. If not:
  • Open a terminal and type "sudo dpkg --install " (without enter and with a space after "--install"), then drag your package file into the terminal and then press enter.
Does this help?
