Windows API implementation - standard suite
  20 reviews

Wine is a free MS-Windows API implementation. This is still a work in progress and many applications may still not work.

This package provides essential wrappers and convenience tools for the standard Wine components. It also employs the Debian alternatives system to provide the usual command names, e.g. "wine" instead of "wine-stable".

I am using Linux Mint 20.1 with Wine 5.0-3ubuntu1 and it works great with DirManger, D-Fend Reloaded, DOSBox 0.74-3 (I also have the Linux version installed.) Easybin, Sim68k and Easy68k Editor.

Excellent Program, was not certain whether my programs could be installed by wine. This is a must have program for Linux mint sylvia 18.3 for windows users. Thank you for developing such programs.

Works fine on Mint Cinnamon 20, after some help from these reviews and "how to use wine to run windows". Needed it for 7-zip and it works perfect!!

for those who are facing issue with file association you can just open the Terminal and run this and it's going to associate the file again code: sudo cp /usr/share/doc/wine/examples/wine.desktop /usr/share/applications/

Running Mint 20 Cinnamon and this app is worthless.

Works, but file association is broken in Mint 20 Xfce. Wine doesn't appear in the list of applications. I kludged a work-around by right-clicking an executable > Properties > Open With > Other application > Use a custom command > wine

I am using Wine on Mint 20 Cinnamon and it works great. I am running small windows executables without any issues. No need for a Windoze VM.

Le seul qui ne fout pas le souk et qui est 100% efficace si on apprend a s'en servir. Je deconseille tous les autres.

works good loaded from software manager in mint cinnamon 19.3 but I only run old utilities programs and not cutting edge games.

it is really much old version of wine better get from official resource

If you are looking for "Wine", you want the package "Wine-installer"! It's the Linux Mint way how to get a simple and up-to-date wine on your PC. This version you are looking at currently is way old for modern gaming.

It's good to use 32 bit windows apps on Linux!

I really like the software, but the version in the official repo is incredibly out of date. Use the package offered by winehq instead.
