How to Install Wine 9.2 in your Linux

Wine provides official packages for Linux (e.g., Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora), and macOS. User can follow the official guide in its website.

For Ubuntu users, simply open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the commands below one by one:

  • First, download & install the keyring (it should output unreadable text):
    wget -qO - | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/keyrings/winehq-archive.key
  • Download & setup the sources file:
    sudo wget -NP /etc/apt/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -sc)/winehq-$(lsb_release -sc).sources

    For Ubuntu based systems, do replace $(lsb_release -sc) with UBUNTU_CODENAME (e.g., jammy, focal) depends which Ubuntu version your system is based on (run cat /etc/os-release to tell).

  • Then, refresh system package cache:
    sudo apt update
  • Finally, install the wine-stable package:
    sudo apt install winehq-devel

sudo apt remove --autoremove wine-devel winehq-devel

There will be local configuration files and app data left under .wine and .local/share/applications. They are hidden folders, press Ctrl+H in file manager to toggle display and remove them as you want.
