    Read the docs carefully. And don't install via Aptitude, they have old versions of Wine (at least the last time I tried that).

    I believe you want to do this (at least that is how I've installed wine in the past):
    Code:
    apt-get update
    Code:
    apt-get install wine

    i've had the same problem in the past, wine simply wouldn't start, either from the gnome menu or via a terminal command. infortunately I can't remember having this issue solved....

    1/You might want to desinstall your current installed version and restart from scratch

    2/Edit your sourcelist and add the following Ubuntu Wine Team PPA to your update sources

    3/Add the following signing key so that the above PPA becomes a trusted update place

    4/Refresh your sourcelist

    5/Get the latest version of wine


    By the way, 9.10 is stil in a beta stage at the time you wrote your message isn't it ?

    thank you all for your posts ill try them all as soon as i get the chance. i know that 9.10 is still beta so i anit to hard pressed to get it working. but it would be nice. :) just to get some confirmation about how it installed and if it installed correctly. the options under the applications dropdown are programs, browse C:\ Drive, Configure Wine, and uninstall wine software. if that is correct how do you start it or even install a program under it.

    Have you tried to install directly from the repositories?

    If properly installed, Wine is visible inside your right click contextual menu

    Try to download whatever windows apps you want and save it to your desktop. Right click over it and you should have something like "Open with Wine"

    For future browsing, a virtual windows directory tree called "drive_c" is created inside your user directory and holds all your installed windows programs, but you have to ctrl+H to unhide it, it's called .wine
