Watchtower Library 2009 on Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit

Fantastic research program but not fully compatible with the shipped ubuntu version of wine (1.0.1). After some looking around, I found this excellent guide to installing Watchtower Library 2009 correctly. This uses 1.1.25 (a beta version) but with this comes working scripture popups. The guide can be found at:

Basically the instructions are:
1) Get Scott Richies GPG key from
2) System>Administration>Software Sources - Third Party Software, Add
deb jaunty main #WineHQ-Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope"
3) Click Add Source, Authentication tab
4) Import the key you saved ealier
5) Close and reload package information when prompted
6) Open terminal and
$ sudo apt-get install wine
7) check version with:
wine -version
should be 1.1.25
8) Now install Watchtower Library with "setup.exe", copy to hard disk
