I am following the following instructions from a forum online.
ok you are going to have to do this
open up a terminal and type sudo apt-get build-dep wine
while you are downloading these dependencies, you will need to download
the source code for wine
after you are done with installing the dependencies in the terminal,
open up a new one (you should extract the wine source in as the folder
in your home folder)
in the terminal type cd wine1.1.6 or whatever the folder is
Then type /.configure
this will take ~3 minutes
after that you will need to do make
which can take 1-3 hours, depending on you cpu
after that is completed, do sudo make install
just make sure you uninstalled your older version of wine just in case.
In line 5 of the above instruction, I opened a new shell. I extracted
the wine source into /home/steven/Desktop
It's name is wine-1.1.16.tar.bz2. At this point my inexperience has me
stopped. I tried cd to /home/steven/Desktop so I am currently in the
Desktop directory, but I am confused about what to type in next. if I
type in /.configure, I get the response: No such file or directory. If
I type in wine-1.1.16.tar.bz2, I get command not found.
My goal is to be able to install e-Sword in the end. But in Jaunty, I
have to follow the above instructions, and I am not able to understand
the instruction. Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong. Thanks.
