Assuming you have Ubuntu/Debian:

  1. Download latest LOIC and extract.
  2. Open a terminal and type (without the parenthesis) “sudo apt-get install wine” and wait for it to finish.
  3. Type “wget”.
  4. Type “sh winetricks” and from the GUI select dotnet20, and install it.
  5. Go to applications on your drop down and under Wine click on “Browse C: drive” then move the extracted LOIC to c:
  6. Now, go to the extracted file and right-click LOIC.exe and click properties.
  7. Go to permissions tab and check the box “Allow executing this file as program”.
  8. Right click file again and under open application, select wine.

Enjoy ;)
