How to install Wine 5.0 on Linux Mint 19.3

Today we are looking at how to install Wine 5.0 on Linux Mint 19.3.  After installing Wine in this method you will always receive Wine updates when a newer Wine Stable version is available.

If you do not want to use the terminal, you can also install Wine 4.0 from the Software Center.

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.  Enjoy!

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.

PS.  Step 4 is different than in the past, as for some reason, at least for now, I and I knew of a few people can't add PPA's of Wine to Mint anymore, so we open the source file on our system and add the two repositories which are needed for Wine and add the two repositories at the bottom of the list, as seen in the video.

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

  1. I finally got it, but your instructions didn't say what to do with the window with sources.list after it was finished filling the text into it. I had to save it then exit before continuing on,
