I tried to install wine, but getting stopped by the following error messages.

Sounds like your directories aren't writable. Maybe they don't even exist. Check ~/.wine/config to find where your C: drive is really located, make sure it exists, and make sure it's writable. (Use ls -l to check writability, and chmod 774 <directory> to make anything writable if it's not already.)

I'm getting this one, too. Apparently someone deprecated the "Resolution" entry in the [fonts] section of the config file. Put a semicolon in front of that line, and the error should go away. I'm trying to find where to replace it, but none of my *.reg files include an HKEY anything.

the .reg file you're looking for should be in ~/.wine/c_drive/windows/regedit.exe

as for the config file, you mean it should be like this?

[fonts]
;"Resolution" = "96"

That's what I mean. I've pretty much given up on Wine, since even cedega couldn't run Jedi for me, nor Oregon Trail for my kids. When I do run Wine, I just ignore the resolution error and keep going.

To fix the LogPixels error and also program text overlap problem in some programs.

1) Type wine regedit
2) Go to HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts
(you may need to make a key under Software)
3) Create a DWORD named LogPixels
4) Enter DPI number in binary. Usually its 96 for 96 DPI. You can try a lower number if the text is too huge.
