Mint 19.3 and wine

Hi all I tried installing wine on Linux 19.2 yesterday to use with a small CAD program, but the program won't run. The CAD program is small and has a good record for compatibility with Linux and wine. I somehow managed to corrupt the apt sources list and decided to upgrade to version 19.3 instead, b...
