I recently got a new computer and erased windows 10 before booting it up.

Now I need windows for work so have been using wine on ubuntu.

It has been great!

All I did was

Code:
sudo apt install wine64


and it was good to go, and had to add mono and gecko and ie8 for my app to work but it works like a champ and no windows installed, which is exactly what I wanted.

I got a lot of info from this message board, the search works very well.

Thanks keep up the good work! :mrgreen:

ps a lot of guides elsewhere said that a prompt would ask to install mono and gecko that never happened but I installed them manually from winehq.

Which is completely the wrong way to install the Ubuntu wine package. :cry:
Which is (for bionic): wine-stable.
A meta-package that should pull in the sub-packages: wine32 wine64 ; which cover both the 32-bit and 64-bit architectures that Wine requires.

This is why "your" Wine version didn't automatically pull down wine-mono and wine-gecko, because your Wine installation is busted...

Having said all of that...

The Ubuntu bionic Wine package, version 3.0, is by now very obsolete.
So you'd want to follow the instructions on: WineHQ Download: Ubuntu ; to get the most recent Wine (or Wine Staging release): 4.1 (at the time of writing).
