Installing Wine on Ubuntu Saucy

This is a very short post because it is very simple, if not immediately obvious.

Symptom:

You are trying to install or build Wine from either the official Ubuntu repositories or from the PPA and are constantly receiving dependency errors.

Cause:

Multiarch is supposedly working on Ubuntu now so you should see everything work! You won't.

Solution:

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo install wine

Apt will now pull the FULL dependency list. The same is true for apt-get build-dep.
