    Wow, great that I did the search, it seemed like it wanted to uninstall too much stuff that I didn't know what it was, I tried to see if it asked the same for the 1.5 beta and I think it actually asks for more to be unistalled.
    Thanks for the heads up, too bad though.

    Re: Wine install to 12.04 wants to remove Google-Earth and some...

    Workaround - amd64 12.04 - stock repos:


    Code:
    sudo apt-cache policy wine
    this returns 1.4.0 for me.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep wine
    Downloaded the source code for it here:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine...r.bz2/download

    After build dep is done I:

    Code:
    ./configure --without-x --without-freetype
    Code:
    make
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Wine installs no errors.

    Then as the workaround to the GUI frontend I:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install q4wine

    QT GUI works never asks to remove anything

    Having an X issue of course, but I am able to

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall wine without removing packages... *working on it*

    Re: Wine install to 12.04 wants to remove Google-Earth and some...

    Is this still an issue?

    I want to install wine to play around with, but when I go to synaptic to do the install, I see it wants to un-install google-earth-stable.
    I want google-earth at this time more than I want to play around with wine.
    Is there a work-around?

    ( 12.04.01 here, 64 bit )

    On 12.10 installation of Wine from the Ubuntu repos removes google-earth, but it can be reinstalled afterwards. No idea why this is happening...

    It's a bug within Synaptic !
    Just install (using Synaptic) Wine.
    It than removes GoogleEarth, but Wine is installed.
    After installing Wine, just install GoogleEarth again.
    That's all you need to do.
    No dependency errors or broken links after you've done this... enjoy

    I was not successful with (even) your suggestions. Everything went fine, no errors, but wine still seems to be not installed therefore I can not install q4wine.
    How could I remove all the junk from the computer that has been left over during the aforementioned process?
