How to install Wine 5.0 on Elementary OS 5.1 Hera

Today we are looking at the recently released Wine 5.0.  In the video and in the article, we look at how to install it on Elementary OS 5.1 Hera as the process is slightly different than what it is in the past. 

The first command will add 32bit support for Wine on your system.  The second and third will download and add a Wine security key to your system.  The fourth and the fifth command will allow you to add additional repositories like the fifth command to your system.  The sixth command will update your system sources.  The seventh command will install Wine-Stable.  The last command will install 3 packages that your system needs to install to run Windows applications.

After installing Wine, you can close the terminal and the Wine configuration application and right-click on the package you want to install and choose to install it with Wine.

After that, I show how to use Wine by installing Windows applications called Fotor.  Please note that not all Windows applications work on Wine but some do and they just continue to improve it.

Please note, that not all Windows programs work on Wine but many do.

Commands Used:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) wget -nc
3) sudo apt-key add winehq.key

4) sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys DFA175A75104960E
