Is there a section here where i can ask about the Wine program? i am using Linux Ubuntu 12.10 Quetzal on a Toshiba laptop, on Windows 7 with 19 GB partitioned for Linux. I am dual booting with WIndows 7. Here is some additional info about my system:

Ubuntu 12.10, Memory 3.9GB, processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T600 @ 2.20GHz x2, OS type 64 bit.

Here is the message I got when I tried to install Wine from the software center and also trying from the terminal and Wine website:

warrior@ubuntu:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

I installed as indicated by the Wine website their WineHQ PPA repository and after that I tried installing their latest stable version Wine 1.4 64 bit. and still no dice.

Any ideas about what I need to do next? I am trying to use Wine for old Windows games.

I am a noob, just installed Linux yesterday!
