    Software Installation Problems ( wine, skype and more .... )

    Hello all !

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit with wubi. After installation when I start my computer it asks me to choose between Ubuntu and Windows 7.

    Ubuntu works fine. But software installation is a problem. I tried to install wine, but there is always an error of missing package dependencies. Same happened with skype.

    When I install software, I am prompted to fulfil the 'i386' package dependencies. When I try to install the 'i386' packages, it says 'wrong architecture'.

    Is it a limitation of running Ubuntu with wubi ?

    Regards

    Try this.

    Open a terminal and enter:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Then try to install again.

    To me, this look like a bug with no solution.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...4/+bug/1004217

    Maybe someone else will come up with an idea, but the only immediate solution I can see is to install 32 bit.

    Im also having this issue. Im duel-booting Ubuntu with Win7. Everything runs fine till i try to install anything. Ive run

    Code:
     sudo apt-get update
    and everything updates fine. Ive run the install again and still get the following :

    "The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    wine:"

    Im really at a loss here. Any help would be great! I should also remind everyone the last Linux OS i ran was several years ago (RedHat 9). Thanks again guys!
