Wine issue

Postby MagicHobo on Sun Jul 17, 2011 12:53 pm

I tried to install wine via the 18+ .deb files from the winehq website, but whenever I go to update my system it keeps removing the files. Its getting kinda annoying having to reinstall them over and over so is there a compatible repository somewhere that i can just add to install and get updates for wine from?

What is wrong with the Wine you can install through Software Manager?

I'm using http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ for now you need to go to the above post about setting up the package manager.

If the OP is looking for the latest packages from winehq, perhaps it would be worth adding their PPA: here's how.
