I want to install wine on my elementaryOS Freya system. It marks two packages for removal -
xdg-user-dirs-gtk, which I'm hesitant to approve. Are these packages essential/will I break my system by going ahead with the installation? If so, is there a work-around?
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
