How to install Wine on elementary OS 5.1 Hera

Today we are looking at how to install Wine Staging and how to use it on Elementary OS 5.1.  Please note that the exe package which I used in the video, are not there by default.

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 4th command will allow you to add additional repositories like the fifth command to your system.  The fifth command will add the Wine repository to your system's sources and also update your system sources.  The last command will install Wine-Staging.

When we install our first package Wine will automatically install 3 packages, as seen in the video, Wine Gecko and Mono packages, it is needed!  Enjoy!

Ps.  Since the release of Wine 5.0, the installation of Wine has changed, we updated the commands in this tutorial, and here is an updated video guide.
