Complete Guide to Using Wine from the Command Line (Ubuntu)

A new la entry has been added:

Complete Guide to Using Wine from the Command Line (Ubuntu)

This tutorial started off as a reddit post that ended up getting out of hand. The original poster asked for guidance regarding gaming in Linux. This tutorial covers relatively advanced (probably closer to intermediate) use of Wine.

Before you start, please be familiar with these pages: (Wine home page) (This is where you go to learn how to run tricky games)

The appdb page is very important. It will tell you which games work and on which versions of Wine they have been tested.

The tutorial should be updated because aptitude is no longer included with Ubuntu by default as of 10.10 Maverick Meerkat.
