Hello Everyone!
Today I came with a new trick viz, running windows programs(.exe) on Ubuntu.


Sometimes,we just forget to create a dual boot while installing ubuntu or sometimes we’re lazy to switch to Windows. There’s nothing left for us to do except sit down and cry with the limited software of the Ubuntu Software Center. Sometimes we just need some Applications which can be run only in windows not in ubuntu So, this trick will be helpful for them. But there’s something to help us with our thing.
Installation steps:
  1. Go to the Ubuntu Software Center. Click on Edit and Software Sources. Press the Add button and enter ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
  2. Enter apt://wine1.4 in your address bar.
  3. Install your Windows .exe file.
  4. Right click on the file and open with Wine Windows Program Loader.
Alternate steps:
  1. Open Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and enter the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
  2. Now use sudo to install Wine: sudo apt-get install wine1.4
  3. Install your Windows .exe file.
  4. Right click on the file and open with Wine Windows Program Loader.
