There is a typo on the installation page for Ubuntu

Post by mobesa » Sat Nov 23, 2019 6:42 am

Hey everyone!
Just firing up a topic to point out a small issue on this page dedicated to installation of Wine on Ubuntu.
Isn't this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
... supposed to be this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install --install-recommends wine-stable
...?

Cheers!

That is not a typo. The instructions are correct; winehq-stable is a metapackage that pulls in all the other packages and installs the symlinks needed to make the WineHQ package the default on your system.

Did you add the WineHQ repository? What does your /etc/apt/sources.list contain?
