Wine and many other packages are available from the synaptic package manager (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager)

If a CLI version is needed you can use aptitude

These tools also take care of dependencies.

Will that get Bhanu999 Q4 Wine? I vaguely remember running into "can't find or execute wine server binary."
@Bhanu999 Let me know how it goes! When I tried it I ran into a problem (I think PinguyOS comes with Wine and Wine tricks already installed by the way).

Q4Wine is not installed by that command, it is a separate package. If you get that error-message your Q4Wine is not configured correctly.

I don't want to hijack the thread but I was thinking I either needed to edit some .conf file maybe in /etc or maybe a missing symbolic or hard link? I wasn't going to get into this as Wine was a side-side project to run a particular game but a good Wine thread here could be important to win converts to Linux. By the way, winetricks is also separate, at least as a .deb package: http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/wine

Q4Wine has a configuration GUI where you have to set up the paths to the binaries. Have a look here, this thread contains a screenshot of the UI and (in the last post) the correct values for a Slackware system. Those should be similar on Debian.
