You can find the Wine packages here: Ubuntu Wine packages but your installation is simply too old. It is not supported anymore.

You are shouting.

you said already though that you're on ubuntu 8 (which doesn't exist... it's either 8.04 or 8.10) and the repo there doesn't have pacakges for systems that old.

After quick searching i would also suggest either get that PC to network somehow or at least upgrade to newer Ubuntu so that you have higher luck finding packages for offline installation and avoid missing dependencies during offline install. Also YouTube has videos about installation.

You should really upgrade to a supported version of Ubuntu (ar even another distro, if you wish).

Sorry, this makes no sense. First, you can install Wine via apt-get or aptitude. Second, if you're browser is that broken that you can't download something, a link to whatever you can't download won't make a difference. Most importantly...if you just mouse-over that link, it'll display in the status bar of your browser...you can read it yourself from there:
Code:
apt://wine1.2

is this what you're looking for:
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+...cppa1_i386.deb
I can't check because I use fedora
NB: even if this is the file you want, I bet there'll be dependencies when you try to install it, so the best solution is to connect your linux box to the Internet.

You have asked this question already:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...t-wine-888936/


Sticking to one thread reduces board clutter, and makes sure that you get a more detailed answer. Posting it twice, will just have people running you through the same steps that you where already shown.

Ubuntu 8.* is NO LONGER SUPPORTED!!!

It will no longer recieve any important security updates, and you're completely missing out on the package manager functionality. You really should upgrade.

To reinforce the need for an upgrade, Here is what is seen at winehq:
"binary and source .debs for Ubuntu Karmic (9.10), Lucid (10.04 LTS), Maverick (10.10), and Natty (11.04)"
You'll notice that 8 (.04 or .10) is not listed. Even if you got the download to work it wouldn't be right. I do not think using a binary/source meant for 9.10 or 10.04 will work with 8.x. I could be wrong though.

So if you have a PC with an internet connection, Just burn a newer version (or a new distro!) to CD or DVD ... These things are free, No reason not to stay up to date. Also, Zorin which is built on Ubuntu comes with Wine installed (as did the other distros I am using). Updating or switching may save you all this hassle and they will be supported.

I sincerely hope this helps, You really seem to be having a rough time, and that is never fun for anyone. Good luck!
