Run e-Campaign on Ubuntu Linux and Linux Mint

There're two popular ways to run Windows software on Linux: running it inside a Windows virtual machine, or inside Wine. Refer to this page for a brief description on installing e-Campaign inside a virtual machine.

Wine is a free and open source software application that aims to allow Windows applications to run on Unix-like operating systems.

This webpage describes how to run e-Campaign 12 on Ubuntu Linux via Wine. For simplicity, this tutorial assumes you're using Ubuntu Linux 14.04 or later. The instructions here should also work for Linux Mint and other Ubuntu-based Linux distributions.

The following Linux commands are executed inside a terminal window.
