If you are using Ubuntu Linux, you can get WINE through the Synaptic Package Manager. through the menu: System —> Administration —> Synaptic Package Manager. Then enable the Universe Repositories from within Synaptic by going to Settings —> Repositories —> Add. Then in the "Add Channel" box that opens click on the option to add the "Community Maintained (Universe)" repository.

After you have added the Universe Repository, go back to the main Synaptic window and click on the reload button on the top left. After it reloads, use the search function to search for WINE. Click on the box next to "wine" (colored green in the image below because it is already installed on my machine), and choose the option to "Mark for installation" To complete the installation, click on the "Apply" button.
