Hi,
I've asked for this to be moved to the Linux forum.

But .... LXDE is a desktop environment, not a version but something that's run on a version (user interface). What version of Linux are you using ? (asked in another thread too) so specific help can be given.

Here's a basic guide for installing 'Wine' on _buntu-based versuons. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine
and here's a more generic guide http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Wine-on-Linux

I'm just going to assume you're using Ubuntu as that's really the only version of linux that I know anything about. If you are in fact running Ubuntu these are the steps to install Wine.
  1. Open the Terminal
  2. Copy and Paste this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
  3. Press Enter
  4. Enter your password.
  5. Press Enter
  6. Copy and Paste this: sudo apt-get update
  7. Press Enter
  8. Copy and Paste this: sudo apt-get install wine1.4
  9. Press Enter

If at any time during the above process it asks you to type "y" or "n". Always type "y" and then press enter.

It looks like you downloaded PCLinuxOS with the LXDE desktop. That's now much clearer, thanks for posting that link.

I think PClinuxOS is based on Debian, but I'm not 100% certain so hopefully someone else might know.

I guess people have to pay for the free LINUX software by being too complicated to use....we all pay one way or another.

No, that's not what I'm saying. There is one marked Debian but I'm not 100% sure that PCLinux is Debian-based so I'm hoping someone who does know may happen to see this thread and help out.

It's not complicated.
We all have to learn to use an operating system - Windows knowledge comes from using it, trial and error and research ... same with Linux.
Anyway, I'm still Googling around and will let you know if I find an answer.

I hope I gett better understood.

The reason I need to have wine in my PC and ASAP is because:

1. I have lost my cell phone
2. Have no money to replace it now
3. Have one majicJack that only runs on Windows
4. My PC is running only on Linux
5. Need to start using my majicJack phone to catch-up on my calls ASAP
