Wine

I am trying to install Wine so that I can use Adobe Digital Editions. I am not having any success. Can anyone please help.
I am using Ubuntu 11 10.

Open a terminal, then enter:

sudo apt-get install wine1.3 winetricks

hit enter, and enter your password when asked … done :slight_smile:

Then just right-click the Windows .exe installer, and select Open With > Wine Windows Program Loader

Be aware - not all Windows applications work in Wine … but Adobe Digital Editions 1.7 is listed as Platinum at WineHQ, so should be fine.

Also ensure your Windows .exe installer file has a tick in the box beside “Allow executing file as program”. You can find this by right clicking > Properties > Permissions.
