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.

Commands Used:
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
) winecfg

Commands are based on this:

  5. Covid has truly changed the world. Our online liquor store has seen a huge increase in daily sales, with wine and tequila leading being the biggest increase.

  6. As beginning in July I will have to do online teaching here in Thailand, I'm told I need to use the LINE app for "group calls".
    I installed Wine according to these instructions, and it seems to work well. Then I downloaded the LINE app and installed it through Wine, and I got the screen telling me it had "installed successfully".
    When I try to launch, I get this message:
    "Launch error detected. some files are corrupted or missing. Please install LINE PC again in
    Error: could not restore LINE."
    And around and around. I've tried it all several times, and am stuck.

  7. Thank you! This worked for me also... after trying many other tutorials.
