Wine for 64bit Mint Debian

Post by Curtrey »

Please would a kind person instruct me how to install WINE for Mint Debian 64 bit. I've tried Package Manager and Synoptic Package but although it seems to go through the motion, nothing is installed.

Thank you

Love

Rather than use WINE, try playonlinux. It allows you to manage different versions of WINE, comes with automated installers for popular programs (eg. MS Office) and separates programs into separate virtual drives.
You can either locate the package in Synaptic Package Manager or open a terminal and run: sudo apt-get install playonlinux
Home PC: Xubuntu 14.04 x64, Nvidia GTX650, i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, Asus Xonar DX
Work PC: Mint 13 x64 XFCE, Nvidia GT620, i5 3470, 8GB RAM
Laptop: System76 Kudu Pro, Xubuntu 14.04 x64

Thanks for your suggestion

Playonlinux does not work for me in 64 bit Mint.

There must be someone in "MINT LAND" who uses WINE on 64 bit Mint

PLEASE PLEASE assist

If you have problems on 64-bit Mint that don't exist in 32-bit editions please install ia32-libs from the repository.

@ Curtrey: if you are using Mint 13, 14 or 15 instead of the Debian edition, please don't use this topic since this is about Mint Debian.

Why is the Software Manager unable to provide a WINE64 app which works and installs

Don't know.

You can go to the wine website. They do have detailed install instructions for a lot of distros. I installed wine on mint cinnamon using their ubuntu repo but you probably want their debian instructions.

You may want to check some debian specific forums also.

Curtrey if you can't mention which Mint version you use, we can't help you. Are you using Mint Debian?

I am using Linux Mint Debian 64 bit.

I find it bizarre, disappointing and very disheartening that the 64 bit version of Mint Debian can be so useless in the provision of running Microsoft apps by WINE on a 64 bit system when 32 bit is well catered for.

I have spent 90 hours over the last two weeks in trying to find an easy to use system which will run my Microsoft apps. This has proved to be completely wasted time.

I have always thought Mint Debian to be a first class o/s and it is in 32 bit. BUT 64 bit machines will take over from 32 bit
and the inability to provide WINE or another system on 64 bit to run Microsoft apps will be very constricting for Mint.

Also disappointing is that nobody will tell me how to run Microsoft apps on Mint Debian 64 bit system.

Correct me if I'm wrong people but as I see it this is not a really a Mint or Debian problem it's all due to the fact the Wine is still a 32 bit package that needs "work rounds" to get it to work correctly on 64 bit systems.

After 2 minutes browsing I found this which may help:

Yes I've read them and lots more.

I don't believe that a stable WINE app for 64 bit can be excused as a WINE problem.

PCBSD provide WINE for use on their 64 bit system which works like a dream.. However it is done and whatever the back
ground PCBSD has done it. SO WHY CAN'T MINT DEBIAN do it?

You can install the 32 bits version on your 64bits system since LMDE is multiarch. But you need to open your eyes and read the link by ZeroZero for that.
And stop being aggressive or leave !

I succeeded installing Office 2007 months ago using google and wine. So you should be able to. Use your brain.

Wouldn't it be easier to use PCBSD then?

Why PCBSD? You can also just use an Ubuntu-based Mint edition like 13, 14 or 15, in those editions 64-bit Wine works fine if installed from the repository. It's just Debian and its derivatives that are having problems with Wine.

I am being aggressive because there is an obvious wrong which is not being addressed. I am not stupid. I have read and tried to use the so called fixes which proved useless. For at least two of them copying and pasting into the terminal did not get past the first entry before failure. I spent 90 hours reading so called fixes and comments on the web, So Killer de bug put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!!!
If Killer de Bug wants me to leave, and elsewhere someone suggested I go to PCBSD, then so be it.
I am much too old to want a fight.

Good bye

Have you paid something for Linux Mint ? Do we owe you something ? Obviously not. :roll:
If your aggressive don't expect us to be nice and helpful.

First of all, post your sources.list here. Then put the output of

Code: Select all

apt install wine-bin



And you know, you can use whatever distro you want, I don't care. Could be Ubuntu or Fedora or...
But I really think that if you need Microsoft stuff, then it's probably better to use Windows. :roll:

I am doing just that - running Windows apps (i.e EccoPro and Katmouse, Irfanview etc) on my Mint Debian 64 bit system, BUT I use Crossover, which is not free - although you can download a trial version from Codeweavers and try it out.

Another 64 bit desktop machine of mine has NeptuneOS (Debian Wheezy w/ KDE) and after struggling a bit to install Wine the same apps run w/o Crossover.

But on LMDE (with both Mate and Gnome3 running together), I need to use Crossover to get them to run (they try to open but don't quit get there, with Wine alone).

My version of Crossover is not the most recent but it does the job, so I suggest you give it a try.
