download wine onto ubuntu 10.10

Asked by Drew Clark on 2011-01-02

The Wine download page says to click on System, then on Administration, then on Software Sources to add the Wine APT line to the repository but, I click on System then Administration and there is no Software Sources to click on. How do I add Wine to my repository? I am trying to use it to play online poker, specifically Full Tilt Poker. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Drew

Goto Applications->ubuntu software center. Then edit->software sources.

Then you can follow the rest of wine tutorial. if you get stuck please post here again.

Hope that helps

Hi Peter

I didn't suggest to use the version of wine built into the repo as it is only version 1.1.x, or was when i last checked. The version of wine available by adding the software source is 1.3.x and has many improvements over 1.1.x.
