Install Wine on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

WINE is a lightweight compatibility layer that “translates” Windows applications into a language that Ubuntu can work with. The objective of this tutorial is to install Wine on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa Linux.

1-  Check installed architectures

Verify 64-bit architecture. The following command should respond with “amd64”.

$ dpkg --print-architecture

if 32-bit architecture is installed. The following command should respond with “i386”.

$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

If “i386” is not displayed, execute the following :

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

2- Add the WineHQ Ubuntu repository

$ wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
$ sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Add the repository.

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

3 – Install Wine

 

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
or 
$ sudo apt install wine64 wine32

or

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

WineHQ Stable

To install stable WineHQ packages enter:
 sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

 

that all.
