Spotify in Linux
I have just changed over from Windows and want to use Spotify in Ubuntu bit to do this I think I need Wine. However in the Ubuntu Software centre it says that wine is "not available for your hardware architecture". What does this meen and is there a way around this?

Any help apreciated:) Cheers!

What is particular about your hardware architecture?

You do need wine. Also, if you're running 64 bit Ubuntu I would recommend installing 32bit Wine.

Try this command from the terminal to see if it installs:


sudo apt-get install wine
if that doesn't work, whilst in there try this command and paste the output in your reply:


uname -a

Thanks for the help:)I tried both and this is what I got:


alex@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine
[sudo] password for alex:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree     
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package wine
alex@ubuntu:~$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.31-19-generic #56-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 28 01:26:53 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

OK, in that case try this also:


sudo apt-get update
then try


sudo apt-cache search wine
You obviously need to be connected to the internet in order for this to work.
