Hi there

first day with ubuntu and i am struggling already. Whilst searching for how to ope exe files in Ubuntu i found the answer would be to download winehq, but when i try to do this i get the following:

Failed to download package files
Check your Internet connection.

I OK that then get

Requires installation of untrusted packages
The action would require the installation of packages from unauthenticated sources.
ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3 wine1.3 wine1.3-gecko winetricks

from googling i can see solutions to similar problems but they all seem program specific and i have not seen an answer for my problem so hope someone can help here

Cheers

No need to "download" anything.
Use the PPA for wine.

Enter these three commands (copy and paste) in the terminal and 'enter', one at a time :-


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install wine1.3 winetricks

That was looking like excellent advice until:

Configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer

I can't click th <OK> and if i try to close the terminal it tell me :
There is still a process running in this terminal. Closing the terminal will kill it.
