How to install / upgrade wine 1.7 in Ubuntu:
For Ubuntu users, besides building from the source you have to wait a few days for the official PPA updated for the latest binaries. Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, and Ubuntu 14.04 are supported so far.
To add the PPA, open terminal from the Dash or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard. When it opens, run command:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
After that, upgrade Wine by installing available updates via “Software Updater” utility. Or install wine1.7 for the first time by running below two commands one by one:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.7
Since Wine PPA is not updating for Ubuntu 12.04, Precise users can use this unofficial PPA to get the latest wine release.
Before adding this PPA, you should remove the official PPA via command:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
Then add the new PPA for Ubuntu 12.04:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ricotz/unstable
Finally upgrade Wine1.7 through Update Manager, or install it via the previous two
sudo apt-get command.
