I am very new to Linux and the first thing I tried to install was Wine so that I could install the drivers for my USB Adaptor. Anyways, I am not sure if this has been addressed or not yet, I did some looking around on the forums and couldn't find anything like this problem. So if I am beating a dead horse or if I have posted this in the wrong place, I appoligize.
The problem I am having is this: I opened the Software Manager, did a search for Wine, clicked Wine, clicked install, the "* on going actions" progress bar went from 0 to 1 and when I clicked on it I could see Wine installing. Everything went fine until Wine got to 54%. It is now stuck on 54% and the status for it says "waiting for config file promt". It has been like this for several hours so I came here to see if I could find a solution. While looking I found that some people recomend using the Synaptic Package Manager. I tried this and got a dialog window more or less saying that since the Software Manager is attempting to do this task that the Synaptic Package Manager can not process it. I figured "No big deal, I will just cancel the install in Software Manager". Now this is where the real problem seems to come in. When I right click on Wine in the Software Manager, the option is cancel the install is shaded and I can not click it.
So, my question is this: Is this a common problem with an easy solution, or just any solution really, or has my stuborn egotism bested me once again and I mistakenly made a rather massive boo boo?
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated and I thank all in advance that give any input.
