QuoteDistributions Debian LinuxDebian and Debian-based distributions, such as Ubuntu, utilize a special tool for managing packages known as APT. APT is able to automagically install all of the needed dependencies for a software package, as well as keep the package up to date, by scanning what are known as APT repositories. Debian-based distributions have their own repositories of software, many of which include Wine, however we keep our own repository of the latest available packages here for download.There used to be graphical instructions here, however we have found that the terminal commands are actually simpler to describe and quicker for the user to input.
