How to install Wine Staging 4.14 on Ubuntu 18.04

Today we are looking at how to install Wine 4.14 or later version of Wine Staging on Ubuntu 18.04. These commands will work on all Ubuntu 18.04 based distros, all the flavors, KDE Neon, Linux Mint 19.x, etc.  a person will also get the latest version of Wine Staging as soon as it is available via the system updates.

The reason why I made another video, on how to installing Wine Staging on Ubuntu 18.04 is that the installation method has been adapted, since 14.4 and it can become confusing and therefore I placed all the commands together as easy as possible for your conveniences.  

All the commands are taken from the official WineHQ site, links below.

After installing Wine, a place just right clicks on a Windows executable and choose to install with Wine, please note that not all programs work yet, but they continue to improve the application.  Enjoy!
