  4. I did all of the steps and they all worked except for one and that was "sudo apt-get install wine1.8 winetricks" when i try to put that in it says:
    "Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package wine1.8 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package 'wine1.8' has no installation candidate"
    can someone help me
