[Wine] Re: Installing on to Wine from disk

I think I've sorted things out. If you go to the Download facility, you are directed to icons for the various OS types for downloading by clicking on the Ubuntu V10.04 button, you are taken to a page which bears the warning about Wine being a Beta version. There is no option to load any particular Wine version other than this potentially unstable one.

However, right at the foot of the page are some instructions for updating via the Terminal command line. This, however, refers to version 1.3 - still no option for 1.2! By following the indicated steps on the terminal but changing 1.3 to 1.2, I seem to have upgraded to 1.2 but this seems a very odd way of doing things.

I hope, now, I shall be able to install from my Windows disks.

Thank you for your assistance - if I still have problems, I hope I can request further help.

Regards, Mike
