[TUTORIAL] Install Wine LM 20

I have posted this install in various threads in the forum and I wanted to add it here for future reference. I did search for other tutorials and I didn't see any that were not overly complicated. Hope this is found helpful.


Wine 6 install:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo apt-key add winehq.key
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ focal main' 
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

To start configuring Wine, run the winecfg command in your terminal:

Code: Select all

winecfg
The command installs Mono and Gecko and sets the Wine environment. Do not change the configuration to anything and leave set to Windows 7, hit OK on config window.

Click on the “Install” button, and the installation will start. Once done, a new dialog will appear, prompting you to install Gecko. Again click on the “Install” button. When the installation is completed, the Wine configuration dialog will be shown. Once finished, close the dialog box.


I also reccommend installing WineTricks:
