Installing Wine

Postby seavagabond on Mon Jan 07, 2013 7:18 pm

Hi,
I'm installing Wine with the command line on Mint 13 Maya Mate.
Several files downloaded then a window opened with the title “Configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer” and the END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR MICROSOFT SOFTWARE.
At the end of the window there's an <OK> but whatever I try I cannot close it.
Any suggestion please?
Thanks.

Hi Rayeta76,
When opening Synaptic Package Manager, I get the following message:

“Unable to get exclusive lock.

This usually means that another package management application (like apt-get or aptitude) is already running. Please close that application first.”

I closed the terminal, so I don't know what else is running.

The Software Manager hasn't been working for ages.

Is there a way to check with the command line which applications are running or what's wrong with Synaptic?

Hello;

1º Step: Reboot your system
2º Step: Open terminal
3º Step: clear broken packages
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install

but no work command up, using the command down
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg –configure -a

4 Step:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Once these commands should work and the synaptic.
If after working commands no wonk the synaptic, please paste your sources.list, for read use this command:
Code: Select all
sudo pluma /etc/apt/sources.list


Sorry for my bad English.

Hi Rayeta76,
I'm afraid I've messed up things even further: I followed both your instructions and those at http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/482 to fix packages with aptitude. Then I got the Microsoft Windows licence agreement message coming out again. Only afterwards I read that “please note that it is bad practice to use aptitude and apt-get interchangeably, as they record separately the changes made by a user.” It still says there are many broken packages but I don't seem to be able to fix them.
