install wine1.3 hangs up in terminal at EULA for ttf

Asked by Roy Knapp on 2011-04-19

followed these instructions:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.3

Maverick 10.10
Terminal gets to screen
Configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer
and stops.
no OK button - cannot find a command in menu to tell it "OK, go ahead and finish."

tried "sudo apt-get autoremove" to check and see if it HAD finished, and it could not unlock a library.

what next?

Can you give the output of:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get --reinstall install nano; lsb_release -a

Ok the if you have an install running, let it finish. If software centre is running then close it. These will lock the packages. If neither are happening run:

sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a

Should be ok

I think I have an install running, that is the page that popped up with the package configuration
Configuring ttf-mscorefonts-installer

scrolling to the bottom of that page is "<OK>"
but it is not a button. the install stops on this page, and I am unable to get it to go further.

that's where I am stuck.

Press TAB then press ENTER
