How to install and use Wine 4.0.1 on Zorin 15

Today we are looking at how to install Wine Stable on Zorin 15.  At the time of writing this blog, it is version 4.0.1, but this method will give you the latest version and keep you up to date with Wine via your system updates.

After installing Wine we run a command called winecfg that will install Wine mono and gecko packages.

Lastly, we take a Windows app, which I already downloaded, and we install it with Wine on Zorin and then we reboot our system so that the app will appear in the system menu.  Enjoy!

Please take note that not all Windows Applications works on Linux yet.

Ps.  Since the release of Wine 5.0, the installation of Wine has changed, we updated the commands in this tutorial, and here is an updated video guide.

Commands Used:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
