Rosetta Stone is a computer program that is designed to allow you to easily learn another language. Though it is primarily made to be used with computers running Microsoft's Windows operating system, there is a way for Ubuntu users to install it as well. This is by installing a program called "WINE" on your Ubuntu computer. WINE is a type of emulator that allows Ubuntu to recognise files that are meant for the Windows operating system. Once WINE is installed, Rosetta Stone installs relatively painlessly.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Insert your Rosetta Stone installation CD into the disc drive that is connected to your Ubuntu computer.

  2. 2

    Double click on the "Rosetta Stone" icon that appears on your Ubuntu desktop. This will open the CD's contents in a new window.

  3. 3

    Right click on the icon that reads "Setup.exe." Then, click the "Open in Wine Windows Program Loader" option. This will start the Rosetta Stone set-up process in Ubuntu.

  4. 4

    Click "Next" to continue through the Rosetta Stone set-up process. You can still pick the directories where you'd like shortcuts placed, just as you could if you were installing Rosetta Stone in Windows. Once the installation process is finished you will be able to find the shortcut icon for Rosetta Stone by clicking on "Applications," then "WINE," then "Rosetta Stone."
