I've got WINE 1.0 from the Ubuntu repository, but it is an old version. Is the Ubuntu Project going to add a current version?

1.0.1 is the current stable version.

You can add winehq's repository if you want the newer beta versions http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

Thanks. I was having trouble getting the WINE repository loaded in the Software Sources. That's fixed, at least I have one that has 1.1.10. I'd like to get the 1.1.11 version that's supposed to have some bug fixes and maybe a few new functions, but I'm having trouble getting the complete APT line for the Software Sources to accept it.

Wine 1.1.11 is not yet available for Ubuntu yet. If you added the Wine repository to your software sources list then just be patient, will come to you as an update pretty soon.

Ubuntu tweak also easily adds the wine repo, as well as many other useful apps really easily.

Does Slackware also have Duke Nukem Forever? :-P There is no Wine 1.8 yet - do you mean 1.1.8? Seems a bit drastic to change distributions just to get a more recent Wine, especially when the Wine HQ repository has a later version (1.1.10) than Slackware anyway.

1.
sudo su
This means that all commands run from now on will be run as the Super User (root), until you close the terminal window.


2.
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add
We download (wget) something called a "key" that verifies downloaded installation files. We install it. (apt-key add)


3.
echo deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt intrepid main >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo just means display the next bit. The >> means append to the file /etc/apt/sources.list, which is a list of locations your computer uses to get software, when you ask it to.
In this case, we're using the official Wine repository, which has a more up-to-date version of Wine than the included Ubuntu repository.
We could just download the installation file from the Wine website, but the method I chose ensures Wine will be kept up-to-date.


4.
apt-get update
We refresh the list of repositories, making your computer aware of any new or updated packages


5.
apt-get install wine -y --force-yes
We install the package Wine (If it's not already installed). When the installer asks a question, we assume the answer is yes, even if yes is not the default option (You'll just have to trust me on this one!).


6.
apt-get upgrade -y --force-yes
If Wine was already installed, this command will update it to the version in the Wine repo, again, assuming Yes to all questions.
