Bonjour Totry! Smile
Voici un lien pour la version française de ce fil:
I couldn't quite make out what you meant by "Excuse me there is no longer than i work with". Are you just saying that you only have so much time for this? Rephrasing that would be appreciated. I care about what you say, and want to know what it is.
I'm a Linux Mint 11 64-bit user as well! What a coincidence! To upgrade your WINE in Linux Mint, you do it the same way you would in Ubuntu.
First, hold down Ctrl, Alt, and "t" all at the same time for a brief moment to bring up a terminal. First type in "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" (without the quotes) and then hit enter. Next type in "sudo apt-get update" (without the quotes) and then hit enter. Wait for that to finish. Next type in "sudo apt-get install wine1.3" (without the quotes) and then hit enter. It may be a good idea to type in "sudo apt-get update" again like before to refresh it. You can now type in "exit" (without the quotes) and then hit enter to close the terminal, or hit the X in the corner.
Here is an explanation of what the above was: first you added the location of the WINE online installation files to Mint's list of locations of online installation files for various programs. Online installation files like that for a program are called a "repository". If a program's repository location is in Mint's list of repositories, then simply typing "sudo apt-get install [name of program]" will find, download, and install that program without you having to open an Internet browser, search, and go through an installer. And unlike Windows, the newly installed program will be ready to use without having to restart. A PPA is an online Personal Package Archive. So "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" was sudo, for administrative rights, then add-apt-repository, because you want to add a repository location to Mint's list of such locations (the "apt" is because apt is the program used to install through a repository), and the "ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" is the online location. "sudo apt-get update" refreshes the apt program and makes it aware of new repository locations that you added that it may not have noticed you added yet.
The above method will always get you either the latest version of WINE or the version just "one" behind the latest, which is still pretty good. The reason why it doesn't always give you THEE latest version is because it takes a while for the Ubuntu WINE packagers to compile and package the newest WINE into an online PPA.
If you always want to have THEE LATEST WINE, then you will need to download the newest WINE source code when it comes out and compile from source.
I want to talk about this message. do i make that before install Wine or after?
and thank you for your translation.
