Install wine in Debian (Newer versions)

The wine on Debian is too old-1.0.1.

To installer newer 1.3 version, you can add a new ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
[sudo] password for droidzone: 
ubuntu-wine/ppa
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 5A9A06AEF9CB8DB0
gpg: requesting key F9CB8DB0 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
