Installing EXE Softwares in Ubuntu 10.04(am I dreaming or what !)

It is possible to install any exe application(not everything)

Using wine

To install wine

system-administration-synaptic package manager-search for wine-mark for installation

After installation

Copy the exe file to ubuntu and right click and open with wine loader

After installation just click the exe

For Example

To install utorrent

 Go to System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager...

 Search for wine...

 Click on the little box in front of the wine entry and select the "Mark for Installation" option..

 Click the "Mark" button when asked to install the required dependencies...

 Click the "Apply" button... and again to confirm the installation...

 Wait for the packages to be downloaded...

 ...and installed...

 When the installation is complete, close Synaptic and proceed to the next step!

Step 2 - Download and Execute uTorrent

Download uTorrent's installer from here and put the file in your home folder.

Create a desktop shortcut for the uTorrent application.

Right click on your desktop and select "Create Launcher..."...
