    In the order you suggested, here's what happened...

    seel@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine1.5-i386
    [sudo] password for seel:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package wine1.5-i386 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'wine1.5-i386' has no installation candidate



    seel@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install wine1.5-i386:i386
    Reading package lists... Done

    Re: Can't run WINE due to unresolved package dependencies

    Well, first of all, thanks for all the help.

    I actually went ahead and re-installed ubuntu 12.10 figuring it might fix the problem and it didn't.

    So I'm going to install 12.04 and see it that works.

    Either way, I'm learning as I go.

    Re: Can't run WINE due to unresolved package dependencies

    The bad news is, when I reinstalled Ubuntu 12.04 I had the same problem with Wine. Not only was it not installed but it wouldn't install due to the same problem in 12.10: unmet dependencies and all.

    While I still don't know all about what all the lingo means, I did run the following commands, it took a while to finish and now Wine runs just fine including allowing me to use YNAB and Netflix.

    The commands I used were:

    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get remove wine
    sudo dpkg -p Wine
    sudo apt-get install wine

    These are the commands that worked for me. I hope this may help someone else out if they have similar problems, or should I have the same or similar problems in the future.

    I've also learned to keep notes of what I do, how I do it, what happens and all that in Evernote. Very handy indeed!

    Unhappy Re: Can't run WINE due to unresolved package dependencies

    Hello everyone,
    I have the exact same problem. I am new to computers, and don't really understand any of this. Why doesn't the default Ubuntu software just come out with Wine?

    A lot of programs today miss out on Ubuntu, so it would be great if someone could solve this problem quickly please!
