How to install Wine 3.0.4 on Linux Mint 19.1

Today we are looking at how to install the latest version of Wine Stable on Linux Mint 19.1.  Currently, it is 3.0.4 and whenever there is a newer stable version available you will get it via the normal system updates!  Enjoy!

Ps.  I updated the commands because Wine HQ changed the installation commands since making the video, so just copy/paste these commands!

Update: Since making this video, Wine 5.0 has arrived and the installation commands have changed, we updated the commands below, so it is now different than in the video, but for a video guide to install Wine, look here.

1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) wget -nc
3) sudo apt-key add winehq.key
4) sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list
deb bionic main
deb ./
5) sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys DFA175A75104960E
6) sudo apt update
7) sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

Commands are based on this:

  3. it wont work on my system. after: sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable.
    it gives the output: The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 4.0~cosmic)
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    im running 19.1 64 bit

    1. Hi, i see that you have cosmic in your error message, which should be bionic. Cosmic is ubuntu 18.10's code name. so i will recommend that you open up the snapshot tool, timeshift and restore your system to what is was before you ran these commands and then check out my new post of wine 4.0 on linux mint 19.1

  4. am installing it right now i will let you know if it works
