Wine - stable "Not Available"

Post by TGPB »

Went into Software Manager to load Wine and it says it is not available.
So I just went to their site and followed their instructions and get this.

Code: Select all

xxxxx@xxxxxxx:~$ sudo apt-get install winehq-stable
[sudo] password for xxxxxx:

I found the Wine - stable AMD64 version in the Software Manager and tried to install it.

Package dependencies cannot be resolved

This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.

Code: Select all

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

wine-stable-amd64: Depends: libfaudio0 but it is not going to be installed
                   Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0) but 1:8.3.0-6ubuntu1~18.04.1 is to be installed
                   Depends: libudev1 (>= 183) but 237-3ubuntu10.39 is to be installed
                   Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4) but 1:1.2.11.dfsg-0ubuntu2 is to be installed

I assume you're using Mint 19.x, so undo everything you did and install "wine-installer", as per the Mint 19.x release notes.

remove winehq ppa purge your wine installation (in synaptic search for wine and delete all wine) then apt update
and last install wine from mint apt install wine-installer
if you want winehq you will need to learn how to install wine 5.0 and the ppa that offers libfaudio0

That may or may not undo what you did; do what trytip said, which is what I said, which is undo what you did (remove repos and all wine packages)
Run

Code: Select all

inxi -r 
if you see any wine entries, you have not removed them. Use Software Sources or synaptic remove.

Wine has been a PITA recently and the instructions all over the web, mostly copied frmo winehq, are, I think, broken.

Also, you do end up with a winehq-stable package, version4.x.

Edit: run this after you remove repos and before you install wine-installer

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

on a side note is very sad if you use oibaf ppa for amd graphics they are removing 32bit packages. i had complications trying to install wine 5.0 because the graphic driver updates conflict and cause broken packages.
today i did an update from the same oibaf ppa and it wanted to remove my steam:i386, so now i will have to wait see if this gets fixed
looks like slowly linux is going away from 32bit but packages like steam and wine are still holding on to 32bit

I installed wine 5.0 installed in Ubuntu 18.04 and had to add libfaudio (IIRC) by hand. Then I installed 'wine-installer' on a clean Mint 19.3 and that over-wrote 5.0 because I have

Code: Select all

$ ls -l /opt/wine*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Feb  8 09:07 /opt/wine-stable -> /mnt/DATA/Installs/wine-stable
for both Ubuntu and Mint - so they install wine to the same place.

Do you mean that you restored a Timeshift snapshot or something else?

FWIW, I just installed Wine in a fully-updated Mate 19.3 VM using wine-installer and it went through without a hitch.
OTOH, and this may be significant, it's a bare VM with only the default apps installed.
OTTH, I have Wine 4.0 installed (by the same method) on my main system, Mate 19.1, and that one also has no problems.

You added the wine repo. Remove it to install wine the easy way.

To install wine on Mint 19.3 Xfce (clean install) alI did was install "wine installer". No problems and no wine repos.

It'd be nice if winehq.org would get their act together.

no my friend hell doesn't want wine either :) i too am so ooomphed with wine since i have to pick and choose which applications and games i want to run and then go hunting for winetricks dlls

open Software Sources from the menu > PPAs and it should be at the bottom you can highlight winehq and then click remove

close everything and i like to run apt update in terminal to see if there are any errors after removing ppa rather than using sources to update

i'm guessing i was wrong about linux losing all i386 packages but how can they miss not upgrading i386 dependencies? i was correct in not rushing into upgrading libllvm10 this ppa is good on correcting their failures but it is annoying that i could just as easily have broken my system trying to force or remove what is conflicting

phew, for a minute there i thought we were in trouble :o

yesterday they issued an upgrade but they did not include the i386 equivalent. you'll notice wine-installer is included. i know it is just a meta package

today they decided to fix

apparently the install effort did not even get started, looking at Sources > PPA 'Wine' in any form Wine does not show up... so my laptop is clean of Wine.

the only PPA that showed up are apps that I installed for me.
