Can;t install wine 1.9.14

Postby Amber » Thu Jul 21, 2016 2:26 pm

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to install wine 1.9.14 but failing this is what I get, I have removed wine 1.6.2:-

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-staging
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wine-staging


The way I have tried amongst others is to :-
Code: Select all
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-staging
$ sudo apt-get install winehq-staging

Would appreciate anybodies help with this.

I have installed play on linux with has wine version 1.9.14 but when I am play world of warcraft the graphics card is not being used to it full potential.

Regards

Russ

If that's not working for you, try installing the PlayOnLinux frontend for wine (using Synaptic Package Manager); it will let you have multiple versions of wine and manage virtual drives for each program separately where necessary.

Intel Core i3-2370M @ 2.4GHz (quad core); 4GB RAM;

Soon to be dual-boot Win 7 64-bit and U E 5.0 64-bit
