Hello, 13Enblexa.

Seems as if during your intensive forum search, you have missed the recent thread about the same topic: (SOLVED)Can't seem to install WINE.

Best regards,
Karl

Just to add, that's for the WineHQ release. If you do not need the latest version, you can also simply search in Software Manager for wine-stable or wine-development and install that.

Winehq recommends A bit different than what I read on that solved link, please correct me if I am wrong.

If your system is 64 bit, enable 32 bit architecture (if you haven't already):

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 
For Ubuntu versions prior to 18.10:
Add the repository:

Code: Select all

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key
#On Linux Mint 19.x, the next line should be the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable
Once it is installed run

Code: Select all

winecfg
in the terminal and if it needs to install other things let it.

You are not wrong, but the differences are there for a reason: You do not need to add i386 architecture on Mint because Mint is multi-arch by default. Also Mint does not need those Mint-specific instructions they suggest, it works perfectly fine with the generic instructions. Their instructions are a constant source of trouble because users go through them step by step and end up adding the repository multiple times (I even submitted a patch to the Mint dev to prevent that from happening in the first place).

What their instructions don't have but mine do is rm Release.key to remove the temporary file that was created. Otherwise users will forever keep wondering whether they still need that file. ;)

Addendum:

Only today, I set up a new Mate system and installed Wine 3.0 from the official Ubuntu software repositories on it.
The only package which I actively selected in Synaptic Package Manager for installation was: wine-stable (3.0-1ubuntu1)
wine-stable (3.0-1ubuntu1) pulled in a sheer endless list of dependent software packages.
Nonetheless the installation went smoothly, without any problems; and Wine 3.0 works as expected.

Code: Select all

You are not wrong, but the differences are there for a reason: You do not need to add i386 architecture on Mint because Mint is multi-arch by default. Also Mint does not need those Mint-specific instructions they suggest, it works perfectly fine with the generic instructions. Their instructions are a constant source of trouble because users go through them step by step and end up adding the repository multiple times (I even submitted a patch to the Mint dev to prevent that from happening in the first place).

What their instructions don't have but mine do is rm Release.key to remove the temporary file that was created. Otherwise users will forever keep wondering whether they still need that file. ;)
With all due respect, I almost followed up in that thread but didn't because I concluded it had been inadvertent. Now that you confirm it was not:

1. Standard advice to newbies should be install from repo (at least until such point as the repo version gets stale). You did that here. In the other thread, it was buried at the end of your post.

2. If you're going to give someone instructions contrary to those of the developers, you should disclose you are doing so (every time). Moreover, I don't think it should be done except for very good reason. Having walked many through the WineHQ instructions, all they really need to understand is that there's a space after ubuntu/, omission of which is the typo typically made.

3. Out of curiosity, I tried your instructions on a virtual machine, Mate 19.0. Wine appeared to install, but threw a bunch of errors when I ran winecfg. Reverted with Timeshift and installed again using the WineHQ instructions. This time, winecfg ran without comment. Haven't had a chance to test this on a metal machine, as mine is still on 18.3, but the VM test isn't promising.

4. The one thing you say I can confirm is that sudo dpkg --print-foreign-architectures returns i386 without my having to install it. News to me.

Not wanting to be difficult, but it's kind of important to get this right. Notice that the OP in the other thread never returned to say he (or she) had actually gotten to run whatever he was planning to install with Wine.

We all understand what these figures of speech really mean...

I'll just say constructive criticism is welcome, but you are not here to lecture me. I'm not your paid support so I'll help people in my free time however makes me happy, not you. A simple thank you would do...

Also your #3 is FUD, all instructions end with installing the same package. But you must know that.

Actually, I think most everyone will understand what those figures of speech meant, to wit, that I anticipated you would be prickly about being challenged.

When I get a chance, I'll test the Ubuntu instructions on a Mint 19 install. Would be nice if another user or two would do the same.

FWIW, I did test the Ubuntu instructions on a regular Mint 19 install and, again, got a slew of errors when running winecfg.

Apparently no one else cares, so never mind.
