3.Install WINE packages
4.Install WINE Gecko
This is optional. If you need running an internet based application like a browser in WINE, you need to have a package called "Wine Gecko". You can download it from here. After downloading the app, move or copy it to /usr/share/wine/gecko/ (create the folder if not exist; root previlage needed). This way, you have WINE Gecko available for all users. You can also choose to let WINE download it for you, but the downloaded file will be used only for current user, and also it will be removed when you remove .wine folder in you home directory.
Requires libmpg123-0 update.
