Where can i find WINE in a zipped file?


I need to find WINE for Ubuntu 7.10 in a zipped file. I can't get the non zipped files to download. Anyone have any ideas on where i could find it?

A slightly old version of wine can be found in the Ubuntu repositories. Just enable universe and so on in the repositories screen of synaptic, update and install it.

The latest release is available from the private repository distributed via the wine site. Again, you install it using synaptic, or some other front end to the package management system (e.g. apt-get on the command line).

Instructions on how to do it can be found here: http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb

What do you mean by zipped and unzipped files, and what are you trying to download? Wine, like most programs, is generally distributed in whatever form the linux distro uses, which for Ubuntu is .deb. You can get it through apt, either the Ubuntu repository version or the wine-project-compiled version, which you can set up from this page. Or you can download the winehq packages directly from here and install them with dpkg.

None of these are "zipped" files, though they are compressed. The closest thing to a zip file is the source package, which comes packaged in tar.bz2 form. You can download it directly from the wine project at their sourceforge page.

Edit: Well that will teach me to take my time writing up an answer. A whole thread developed before I hit post.

http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=77449 which was linked from the bottom of the downloads page on the Wine main site.

It may or may not be as simple as that. If you happen to have all the packages which wine depends on installed, it's easy - just download the.deb file from the wine site or the ubuntu repositories, and voila - just double click on it from nautilus and it will install (or manually start gdebi with the .deb file as the parameter).

You can find the .deb files here: http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/pool/main/w/wine/

If you are using gutsy on an x86 machine, you will want wine_0.9.52~winehq0~ubuntu~7.10-1_i386.deb

I think we're missing something here. There's no such thing as a "zipped" file in Linux. There are .deb installation packages though. If you just want to install it on a different computer, download the most suitable .deb package from the second link I gave you and install it with the command "sudo dpkg -i filename.deb.

The .bz2 source package is probably not what you want. It contains the uncompiled source code for wine. If you go that way, you'll have to compile the program yourself, which, for a large program like this, is not a trivial task for the average person.

compiling is not the issue. i write and compile programs almost daily. but i need the package. and i know that there are no zipped files in linux.

i will go through this again.

I need the code for wine so i can transfer it to a thumb stick to get it to the ubuntu computer. MY CURRENT COMPUTER CAN NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING BUT ZIPPED FOLDERS. i need the WINE package in a zipped folder. i will extract it while in windows and put it onto the thumb stick.


Does anyone know where i can get the files in a zipped folder?

Well, you need to be a bit clearer about what you need then. Your request sounded like a newbie who didn't quite understand what the proper terminology was and was calling every package a zip file. Now it's much clearer.

It seems strange that you can only download zip files though. Are you referring only to the .zip compression scheme, or any form of compression. If you're looking for .zip directly, I seriously doubt you'll be able to find anything, since almost nobody uses .zip for packaging things on linux.

Tell you what, if you need a .zip package, tell me which download(s) you want from winehq and I'll zip it up for you and put it up on my webspace for a bit.

That's not clear enough. There are a lot of choices. Do you want the newest .debs only? The source? 32 or 64-bit? I'll be glad to send you whatever you want, but I need to know what to send.

the newest .deb files for 32x bit, ubuntu 7.10. just to be on the same side, the sources too. pretty much anything to install it from scratch (it's not installed already)
