    Wine: The following packages have unmet dependencies

    Hello,
    I am very new to ubuntu and Linux in general... I am an IT student and have only taken an introductory class on UNIX/Linux, but I really liked it so I decided to install it as my OS. The problem is that I need to install wine (for using MS programs for school) and have run into problems doing installing via the terminal, I receive the following message:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    wine1.5 : Depends: wine1.5-i386 (= 1.5.18-0ubuntu1) but it is not installable
    Recommends: gnome-exe-thumbnailer but it is not going to be installed or
    kde-runtime but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: ttf-droid
    Recommends: ttf-umefont but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: ttf-unfonts-core but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: winbind but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: winetricks but it is not going to be installed
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Use the Update Manager and use the command below.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install update

    Re: Wine help!!!

    first use the command below to update

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install update
    then write:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install PlayOnLinux
    the command above is the best for MS program it will be installed with wine Enjoy!!

    Moved to Wine forum.

    The command above is wrong. It should be.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Wine: The following packages have unmet dependencies

    These are the commands, in order, that I used in the command line terminal.
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wine1.5


    That's when I received the unmet dependencies error... I tried installing PlayOnLinux as suggested, this is the message I got: E: Unable to locate package PlayOnLinux. A little frustrating but I am enjoying the learning experience. I'll keep hammering away at it, but any more suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Welcome to the forums!

    Why don't you use the stable, trusted, and tested Wine 1.4 from the Ubuntu repositories? It can be installed with 1 mouse click in the Ubuntu Software Center and is guaranteed not to have unmet dependencies.

    Re: Wine: The following packages have unmet dependencies

    I tried that and the software center gave me the following message:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    wine1.4: PreDepends: dpkg (>= 1.15.7.2~) but 1.16.7ubuntu6 is to be installed
    Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14) but 2.15-0ubuntu20 is to be installed
    Depends: wine1.4-amd64 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1) but 1.4.1-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
    Depends: wine1.4-i386 (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
    I'm sure I'm missing something really simple that would not be missed by a more experienced user.
