Go to synaptic and install wine-installer if it's not already installed. That should pull the I386 (32bit ) libs you need.
The one your most interested in is

Code: Select all

libxcb
make sure that the I386 version is installed.

Yes. The wine installer and libxcb appear to be installed ok. Wine ver 4.0.5
