This page is intended for people who need to use Wine (an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") to run Windows applications on Linux.
The instructions below have been worded to match the latest version of Linux Mint 19 called Tara. Some of the instructions have been adapted from a page at Winehq website.
STEP 1: Enable 32 bit programs
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Add Wine to the repository:
wget -nc https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Ubuntu_18.10_standard/Release.key sudo apt-key add Release.key sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'
This step should have created a new entry in the Software Sources under the category of "Additional repositories". Check it to make sure that the entry is the same as what you entered and has no typos.
Update packages and install Wine
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable
