How to install Wine Staging on Ubuntu 19.04

Today we look at how to install Wine Staging of Ubuntu 19.04.  At the time of making the video, it is version 4.7 but you will get the latest version when installing it and you will be kept up to date via your normal system updates

The first command will add a dependency to install 32Bit windows app on your system as well, the second will download a security key for Wine and the 3rd command will add the security key to your system.  The fourth will add the Wine repository to your system, the 5 commands, will update all your repositories, including the new one.  The last command will install Wine.
