    Downloading and installing wine deb package

    I want to download the .deb file for "wine" whilst operating under WinXP. Where can I go to get this package?

    After I download the package, I will transfer it to my Ubuntu 8.04 system via a Samba share I have set up.

    Once the package is on my Ubuntu system, what command do I run to install the package?

    P.S. My Ubuntu system does not have internet access at this very moment. I only have access to the internet via my WinXP system.

    Just go to:

    http://www.winehq.org/site/download

    and download the .deb in a folder which is shared or just put it on a USB-pen.

    Download the latest wine package from here: http://www.getdeb.net/release/3171

    1. Copy the deb file to ~/Temp
    2. cd ~/Temp
    3. To install the deb
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    You could just double-click on the deb file as well and it should being the installation.

    Right, as ubuntu has a built in package installer called gdebi.
    If you download your .deb file it should install very similar to a .exe installer.

    Apparently "wine" is dependent upon "binfmt-support" and "winbind". Any ideas where I may get these packages? Does Ubuntu/Canonical not have a repository where I can get the latest supported .deb packages?

    you should be able to get those packages via windows too, search this site:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/

    now as for connection issue, atre you using wireless?
    and are you trying to install a windows driver of some kind under ubuntu?
    fraid it doesnt work that way.

    Just a little question. Why haven't you got Internet connection to your Ubuntu machine?

    Re: Downloading and installing wine deb package

    Actually I am trying to get a wireless CDMA USB adapter (C-motech CCU-680) to work with Ubuntu (and I haven't tried very hard yet!)

    I thought I would take a stab at trying to run the application that came with the CCU-680 with Wine to see if it would detect the USB adapter.

    Right now I only have internet connection (using the CCU-680) under WinXP, which I am running as a guest OS under VMware Server 2.0 (beta).

    On the side, I been wondering if there is a way to tunnel IP traffic from Ubuntu through the WinXP guest OS. It would be nice to obtain some .deb packages that I am missing (e.g. connect-proxy).
