Wine will not install

Postby Torry on Wed Sep 05, 2012 12:15 am

I am new to Linux totally, I have tried to install wine through the terminal, I keep getting the terminal and I get this:


torry@torrylaptop ~ $ sudo apt-get install wine-gecko1.4
[sudo] password for torry:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wine-gecko1.4
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'wine-gecko1.4'
torry@torrylaptop ~ $ sudo apt-get install wine
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package wine is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'wine' has no installation candidate
torry@torrylaptop ~ $



I don't think I quite get this concept, is there a download I need? Where do I get it, or install it? I really guess I need a step by step all the way walk thru. I have even tried the method if installing through the software manager, nothing happens. It is like wine doesn't exist. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Torry & Welcome to Linux Mint.

Which version of mint are you using?
in any event you should be able to find synaptic package manager on your version.
it will usually be under system in the menu.

it's much easier to use than the terminal. so give it a try just go to synaptic and do a search for wine.
and you should be able to install it from there.

by the way the correct command for doing it in the terminal would have been
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install wine
or if you wanted wine-gecko it would have been
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get wine-gecko
don't include the version numbers most of the time. it will install the latest stable version that way. Wine-gecko is an add on to wine and should pull wine with it but in linux they are two different packages.
Good luck.

I am using Linux Mint 13 Maya

I tried both of those codes, the first one I got this:

Code: Select all
torry@torrylaptop ~ $ sudo apt-get install wine
[sudo] password for torry:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package wine is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'wine' has no installation candidate


The second code you suggested I got this:

Code: Select all
torry@torrylaptop ~ $ sudo apt-get wine-gecko
E: Invalid operation wine-gecko



I got it to "Install" Through the other method it put the Wine file in /usr/share/app-install/desktop It comes up with a blank Icon, and when I click on it (also the configuration)
it tells me this:

There was an error launching the application
Details: Failed to execute child process "wine" (No such file or directory)

heh it's an hard one :lol: i love lmde but if you are really really just starting install maya, get comfortable with linux (well as much as you can :D ) and check back lmde in a couple months (if you feel the desire).
