all went well and I installed everything but now I get this error whenever I try to run any program using admin or sudo. I have googled a bit but no answers.

You're sure you installed the desktop and not the server? No X server is running. Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors starting the server if you are actually on a desktop.

I tried this

cmcanulty@HPDesktop:~$ /etc/init.d/ldm restart
bash: /etc/init.d/ldm: No such file or directory

How did you manage to get this fixed? I'm getting this error now. For wine questions you should try winehq especially for the specific app.

I deleted the .wine folder in my home and then reinstalled wine
