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".

After install, no menu icons but was able to get it going using the win.exe command in terminal processed some rebuilding but was still incomplete... For fun I ran notepad.exe from the terminal and gathered all the exe files from system32 dir .. tried a bunch with varying success ...finally ran from terminal wine install.exe from my office2k folder and bingo .. office installed, icons installed in menu, all good .. LM 20 XFCE .. rockin :)

Хорошее обновление, мои программы оставшиеся от ушедшей Windows7-Pro работают прекрасно, были проблемы с нехваткой некоторых шрифтов. Сейчас всё работает отлично! Авторам очень благодарен - x64 приложения тоже хорошо работают!

Mint 20 Cinnamon => Software manager => Install seems to go ok (a lot of disk rattling). But software-manager-launch will not do anything (not sure if it should though). No "wine" to be found in the Main-menu. Typed "wine" in console, and its shows it there. So just told wine to start some win.exe ... and it kinda finalized the install, before running that win.exe without problems. (its only because I needed wine to solve some problem I persisted, or else I would have probably also concluded the install had failed, and given up on it)

Doesn't open, simple as that, useless removed. Doesn't even deserve 1 star, as it does not work

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!!

works well enough, if you have play on linux or crossover using it becomes very easy

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.
