Use PlayOnLinux as Wine GUI

(Source HERE)

If you would like to use a GUI for WINE, that provides the option to install many Windows applications (including Office programs, games and more), you can install PlayOnLinux. It is available in the repository, but if you want the latest and greatest version, you will need to add the PlayOnLinux repository and install it from there:
For Oneiric:

wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_oneiric.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Please see this page if you need to install the repository for a version other than Oneiric (11.10).

For Precise (12.04):

wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux
