Wine Stable

The Wine development has reached the 2.22 release. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu via its official repository.

Wine 2.21 features:

  • Source selection dialog for scanners.
  • Improvements in ARM64 support.
  • Float audio formats with more than 2 channels in XAudio.
  • Fixes for DLL injection support.
  • Input methods improvements.
  • A total of 14 bug fixes.

How to Install Wine 2.22 in Ubuntu / Linux Mint:

For Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 17.04, Ubuntu 17.10, Linux Mint 17.x and 18.x, open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T and run following commands one by one:

1. Add the official wine repository via command:

sudo apt-add-repository

For Linux Mint 18.x, use following command instead to add the repository:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb xenial main'

For Linux Mint 17.x, replace xenial in the code with trusty.

2. Install the GPG key to be able to receive software updates:

wget -nc && sudo apt-key add Release.key

3. Finally update and install the latest Wine development release:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-devel


To remove wine dev release, simply run command in terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --autoremove winehq-devel

And you can remove the repository via Software & Updates utility under Other Software tab.
