I used the Synaptic Package Manager. Is that not the same as what you offered?
apt-get install wine
OK, so I'll have to leave that function with my Win7 PC.
There are other programs that I might like to port over.
Is it just that I used to wrong method to install wine or is there another part to the procedure to import Windows programs?
Just because I'm checking out the do's and don't on a Linux system,
I'll still be helping out people with Windows issues.
The trick will be keeping Linux procedures separate in my mind from Windows procedures.
P.S. - thanks for the reply.
