LMDE + XFCE (linux mint debian edition) - touchpad and wine issues (solved)

So I am trying out Linux Mint Debian Edition with XFCE - its awesome, but I have found a few niggles so far.

First up is WINE is impossible to install it seems.. what a ball ache..
so go here and use this old stable version .deb file

Second was the synaptic touchpad didnt allow double tap to click or scrolling on the edge..
simple solution
 sudo vim /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

and then add these lines
  Option "TapButton1" "1"
  Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"

I shall add more solutions to issues I find over the next few weeks.
