Hey guys, I am a newby with ubuntu 8.04.
Question: I have downloaded wine 0.9.9-Oubuntu2-i386.deb on a windows laptop and drag it to my usb stick and put on ubuntuís pc, where I do not have internet connection because I have a mobile internet stick. How do I install it manually???

u can just double click it. a package manager window will open. click install it will ask for your password so type it and that's all.

You should also consider installing wine-doors. will help you optimized wine a bit. Am new to wine as well and that helped me with fonts and stuff.

Firstly, wine 0.9.9 is a pretty old version. You should more likely install a modern version.

Second. Every package has a number of dependencies — packages, that must be installed for this package to work properly. Ubuntu package manager apt authomatically resolves this dependencies and tries to install them. If it fails, it will refuse to install your package. You can install this sole package with # dpkg --force-all -i </path/to/package> command, but you'll just get unworking wine.

If you can't join your computer to inet, than you should better install wine from the source code with checkinstall.

I'm pretty sure WineHQ has some repos you can add for latest versions of wine with auto-resolving dependencies. Google WineHQ and find their download page.
