I already have WINE installed, I have installed by write this on terminal sudo apt-get install wine. I didn't add any PPA, and WINE worked fine. But somehow he just disappear from my system. I notice that because I use PlayOnLinux to install some Windows apps, and yesterday when I'm trying to launch one, I've got a message saying that the WINE stoped.

And now when I try to install WINE again I've got some dependencies problems...

    It's solved! I just delete .wine folder from my personal folder. And run the code to install WINE. Commented Dec 12, 2015 at 13:35

For a dumb reason you need to run sudo apt-get install wine elementary-desktop or else it might break Freya. Just be careful and use this command instead-it's what I used.

Hopefully this helps :)


  • Why would Freya break?

I installed WINE on my system using the ubuntu-wine PPA (personal package archive) because the software center WINE would not install and had no problems with it on my system which is freya 0.3.2 64-bit.

To add the PPA and install WINE run the following

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.8

You should now have a perfectly working WINE installation. If you have any problems add a comment to this answer
