    If you are using Wine alone to play your games, its a good idea to know how to install the newer versions of Wine.
    Not to mention WineHQ requires only specific releases of Wine to submit a test report.

    1. Open terminal
    2. Type:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    Press Enter

    This will add the official wine repository to your package manager.

    3. Type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Press Enter

    This will synchronize the available packages with your package manager

    4. Type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine1.5
    This will install current wine 1.5

    Note: Check WineHQ.org for other current releases like:
    • 1.6-r4
    • 1.4.1
    • 1.5.30
    many more...

    You can always check using Winecfg:
    Code:
    winecfg
    Then click on About Wine

    I didn't know you COULD just use wine! Really all by herself?
