Step 1: Im log in with a normal user and use sudo.
Step 2: apt-get install wine1.4. 
When i say aptitude search wine1.4 the system answer
c    wine1.4
pB  wine1.4-common
p    wine1.4-dbg
p    wine1.4-dev
c     wine1.4-i386
Is necesary install some of this packets?

Step 3: copy a file "vmware-viewagent-4.5.0-293049.exe"
Step 4: In a directory where the file was copied, launch the command (wine vmware-viewagent-4.5.0-293049.exe)

If i try to install wine with a normal user, the system say 
Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock -open (13: Permissiondenied) 
Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
