Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Pop open a terminal and do

$ mintwelcome

then when the window opens just put the checkmark back in it to show at start up

This will install the "stable" release of wine, which doesn't have the same degree of software support that you'll find in the newer releases. If you need maximum available software support try:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install wine1.2
