How to install Wine 5.0 on Ubuntu 19.10


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 Ubuntu 19.10, as the process is slightly different than what it is in the past.  If you are running Ubuntu 18.04, look here.

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.

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

Commands Used:
1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
3) sudo apt-key add winehq.key

4) sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DFA175A75104960E
5) sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ eoan main'
6) sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/xUbuntu_18.04/ ./'
7) sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
8) winecfg

    You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    libreoffice-l10n-en-za : Depends: locales but it is not going to be installed or
    belocs-locales-data but it is not installable or
    locales-all
    libreoffice-l10n-fa : Depends: locales but it is not going to be installed or
    belocs-locales-data but it is not installable or
    locales-all
    Recommends: font-farsiweb but it is not installable
    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.0~eoan)
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
