This package installs the stable version of WINE from WINEHQ, along with desktop files and libraries for WINE to work properly. This is the recommended way to install WINE within Linux Mint.

I was using wine for a number of years, but had to quit now, because someone out there decided thet non-unicode apps should use codepage 1252 only. If I try to set any other codepage, it is reverted behind the scenes, without warning. So the simulated windowses are now semiliterate, as far as I'm concerned - I used these apps to write texts in two languages, now it's becoming impossible. And I posted a question about that on winehq forum, nobody even replied in two months. Obviously WoW is more important. So, bye.

This packages installs a out dated wine version so i got bug no sound (on Mint 21.1 Cinnamon). Installing `wine` by steps described in https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian is better.

This is criminally out of date. Do not use this. Go to the winehq site and get their directions on how to get the current version of wine.

**ADVICE** For anyone who is confused on why the install didn't work, or is getting WINE 4.0 instead. First go to WINEHQ and follow the UBUNTU method of install (Mint is also noted in the Ubuntu method) make sure to get the correct sources for your version of Mint. Follow the instructions and install stable as recommended or developer if you want newer features (I personally use developer branch) then in a terminal run " sudo winecfg " Install MONO when asked and I recommended changing Windows support to 10 (So newer python programmes will behave). Then install this application and viola, you now have the latest WINE and have the compatibility layer in your app menu!

I rate this 5 stars because I love wine on linux a lot but there's something wrong with wine-installer. when I install wine-installer, it installs an old, outdated version of wine on linux mint, please make or modify wine-installer that automatically installs and updates to the latest version update of wine. also when I emulate a virtual desktop and test out a software to see if it will appear on wine virtual desktop, the virtual desktop crashes.

Why is version 4 still being offered when WINE 7 is available?

Mint 20.2, simply doesn't work. I've consulted FAQs, tried suggestions offered here, tried command line. Won't even open the applications it downloads (Explorer). Does not appear in any application menu unless specifically searched.

LM 20.2 Cinnamon. Installed WINE from SW Manager and installation was done without any additional actions. The installation of the first W10 application went without a problem. I needed to set up a COM port and friend helped me. All quickly done.

I've not needed anything else to run games. But might need to start the game from it's working directory(or create desktop shortcut), it's the only way wine seems to detect and open up the file. This current version is almost 2 years old but *should* work out of the box for older games. If you're trying to use newer games, you're probably better off going to official site and getting it there.

This is how I install WINE. Go to the oficial page and fallow the steps to install on Ubuntu https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu and then after all that, go to software Manager and install this WINE and you will see WIne under the start menu click on notepad and install all the ad-ons (like 3) and you are ready to go :)

Right after installation it tells me: it looks like wine32 is missing, you should install it. as root, please execute apt-get install wine32. I get an error when doing that: Sekojošām pakotnēm ir neatrisinātas atkarības: wine32:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (gt= 2.28) bet to neplāno instalēt . Depends: libwine:i386 (= 5.0-3ubuntu1) bet to neplāno instalēt E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I have been looking for an easy to use solution for running Deneba/ACD Canvas and FileMaker Pro on a Linux Distro for years. Every attempt I have made over the past 20 years has resulted in failure until now. I recently converted to Limunx Mint 19.3 (Linux Mint 20+ doesn't work for me library issues...So I did a cleaninstall of Linux Mint 19.3 installed WINE 4.0.5 (from the LinuxMinst SoftwreManaer in 19.3) ran my MSWindows Installers for Deneba/ACD Canvas X andFileMaker Pro Advanced V9 and they both installed flawlessly and run perfectly. I have repeated this process without fail on several different machines IT JUST WORKS!ly

I use it for Microsoft Office 2007 (an old version, but sufficient for my needs) and it's working well. (Linux mint 19.3)
