[newbie] How to install Wine (at new way)?

Post by AndrzejBo » Thu Jan 23, 2020 9:04 pm

At the beginning of December last year I installed Wine. First one way and it was bad ( well, that on VirtualBox, I could go back to snapshot), then another way and it was very good, even succeeded in installing .NET, there was only problem with administrator privileges.
Now I don't remember how I installed. Is it better by apt-get, download or from sources? last year I installed Wine.

The easiest way to install Wine is with apt.
You can find a manual on: https://wiki.winehq.org/Download

I first tried https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu but (which is linked from this page)
and have error:
after steps like update and add key:
$ sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'
Malformed input, repository not added.

You could add the repository by hand:

Code: Select all

echo "deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main" > winehq.list
sudo mv winehq.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
