Are you sure Wine isn't already installed? I've not had much luck using
Wine Tools but command line has worked fine. In the terminal type this
without quotes: "wine install my_win_program" Replace "my_win_program"
with the exact name of your own executable. Also, as related footnote,
Linux almost always has software to do what you want without having to
resort to Windows stuff. Admittedly, however, there are exceptions so
on to your question:
Synaptic Package Manager will install your Debian/Ubuntu packages for
you and, in the process, take care of prickly things like dependencies.
Click the menu System > Administration > Synaptic... and you can then
select for installation or removal the programs you want, including
Synaptic. Don't forget to click the green check mark to finalize.
With regard to your attempts so far, you'll need to fix or remove any
botched wine install. In your case, if you've only just finished the
Ubuntu install, I recommend start over. Do a fresh install of Ubuntu
then install Wine, forget Wine Tools and such, and go to the forums for
help with command line installs. Good luck. Juzme
