Hi, every time I try to install Wine it won't let me it always says "Package dependencies cannot be resolved. This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time." Is it not compatible with 12.10 yet, or 64-bit? I really don't know what to do so your help will be appreciated! Thanks. :)

Installing wine is often a problem, example in this thread.

I myself was never able to get wine installed, after many hours of trying. Since i do have windows, i use windows to run windows apps.

Odd, wine installed easy as typing sudo apt-get install wine on my machine.

sudo apt-get install wine

This is what I got back:


@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine

Hello,

Try going to the Software center and see if that works. You will need to add the ppa for it though. Please see this link;
