How to Install Wine 5.0 Stable in Ubuntu 18.04, 19.10

Wine Stable

Wine 5.0 stable was released 2 days ago with a large number of improvements. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 19.10 (fix dependenices).

Wine 5.0 is dedicated to the memory of Józef Kucia, who passed away in August 2019 at the young age of 30. Józef was a major contributor to Wine’s Direct3D implementation, and the lead developer of the vkd3d project. His skills and his kindness are sorely missed by all of us.

Wine 5.0 features:

  • Builtin modules in PE format.
  • Multi-monitor support.
  • XAudio2 reimplementation.
  • Vulkan 1.1 support.

How to Install Wine 5.0 in Ubuntu:

The official wine apt repository has made the packages for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 19.04, and Ubuntu 19.10.

To get out of WINE DEPENDENCY HELL:

I’ve successfully installed Wine 5.0 in Ubuntu 19.10 via following steps without any dependency issue.

Ubuntu 18.04 however run into unmet dependencies issue even after purging graphics drivers PPA, kisak-mesa PPA, etc. And sudo aptitude install wine-stable command output hundreds of package conflicts with no workaround.

THANKS to lutris, I’ve finally got out of the Wine Dependency hell in Ubuntu 18.04 by running command:

sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

Open terminal either by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard, or by searching for ‘terminal’ from application menu. When it opens, run following commands one by one.

1.) Run command to enable 32 bit architecture:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it prompts and hit Enter to continue.

2.) Download and install the repository key via command:

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

3.) Add wine repository via command (for Ubuntu 19.10):

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

NOTE: You may replace eoan in the code with:

  • bionic for Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux Mint 19.x
  • xenial for Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18.x

4.) Add PPA for the required libfaudio0 library:

For Ubuntu 18.04, Linux Mint 19.x, and Ubuntu 19.04 only, as higher Ubuntu releases already have libfaudio0 in the main repositories.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport

5.) Finally install Wine 5.0 stable via command:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

(Optional) After successfully installed Wine 5.0, you may remove the PPAs by launching Software & Updates utility and navigating to Other Software tab.

  1. Hi Jim,
    I would like to run ubuntu more often but i don’t know the code and also some windows programs i still like.
    I ran your code to install wine 5.0 and it seemed to work but how do i find it on my system and run it.
    i am wanting to install MS Publisher and MS Money and a few other small programs.
    Thank you
    Erik

  2. i am getting the following text when i run step 3 through terminal and can’t seem to install due to this:


    Get:5 ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/appgrid/stable/ubuntu bionic InRelease’ [15.4 kB]
    Err:5 ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/appgrid/stable/ubuntu bionic InRelease’

    • Nothing to do with Wine repository, you may either remove ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/appgrid/stable/ubuntu bionic InRelease’ via Software & Updates -> Other Software, or manually install the repository key for the appgrid PPA.

  3. I Tried To Install The sdl2-backport Backport
    but it times out i can not install wine 5.0
    it says i have unmet dependencies
    please Jim If you could get back to me it would be much appreciated
    the winehq team said it has made a mistake
    with the libfaudio0 dependency and is working to fix it
    wine 5.0 may install fine in Eoan Ermine i,am sure it does but 18.04 Bionic Beaver it does not install
    because libfaudio0 is not available
    i install that package though and found it somewhere
    but still can not install wine

    • I did install Wine 5.0 successfully in Ubuntu 18.04. I got unmet dependencies too, however fixed after purging mesa PPA, graphics drive ppa, and running command:

      sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

      And sdl2-backport Backport PPA is required. Just add the PPA (step 4.)) and leave it there. libfaudio0 will be installed automatically as dependency while installing winehq-stable.

    fails at this step 2.)

  5. I’d like to give this a try but one question:

    Concerning step 4. “Add PPA for libfaudio0 library”, is this step necessary for Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon Kernel 5.3 ?

    Perfect, I tried to follow the wine instruction but was having a error:

    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.0~bionic)

    and this line fixed it.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport

    • I have passed a few hours without success trying to install wine on lubuntu bionic beaver, 18.04

      I have followed your instruction but I reached:

      Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
      requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
      distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
      or been moved out of Incoming.
      The following information may help to resolve the situation:

      The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.1~bionic)
      E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

      And if I am trying to install this package I get:

      Which is where the problem seem to become unsolvable:

      The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      wine-stable-i386:i386 : Depends: libfaudio0:i386 but it is not going to be installed
      Depends: libgphoto2-6:i386 (>= 2.5.10) but it is not going to be installed
      Recommends: libfontconfig1:i386 but it is not going to be installed
      Recommends: libsane:i386 or
      libsane1:i386 but it is not going to be installed
      E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

      In spite of having added the repositroy for libfaudio0:

      using the following command
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport

      however the i386 might be a problem? And what about other dependencies?!

  32. Hi Jim – I do not enter the third command [$ sudo apt-add-repository ‘deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/bionic main’
    E: Malformed entry 53 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
    E: Source lists could not be read.]
    The same if I type your command line [$ sudo apt-get install libgnutls30: i386 libldap-2.4-2: i386 libgpg-error0: i386 libxml2: i386 libasound2-plugins: i386 libsdl2-2.0-0: i386 libfreetype6: i386 libdbus-1 -3: i386 libsqlite3-0: i386
    E: Malformed entry 53 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
    E: Source lists could not be read.]

    • This has nothing to do with installing Wine. You have broken lines in the sources.list file. Try removing 3 party PPA repositories (Software & Updatess -> Other Software tab), or editing the line 53 in the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

      • Thanks for your help, just delete the PPA and go without a problem. The problem now is that the system treats * .exe files as compressed and doesn’t install anything as if it wasn’t WINE, I think I’m too old for such fun.

  33. I have the following error that prevents me from installing Wine:

    sudo apt install –install-recommends winehq-stable

    Any suggestions would be welcome

    • I’m having the same error

    • Domingos Lequechane June 24, 2020 at 7:17 pm

      I’m using Linux Mint 19.3 and I’m having an error similar to this one, I already looked for help in forums but even with that, I can’t solve it.

      The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.1~eoan)
      E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

  34. Thank you so much <3

    Wow. Novice here. I just ran “sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386”

    And it borked most things. Mouse, keyboard, window manager, gdebi… I can’t mount any drives and can’t even open a terminal, much less type into it.

    So thanks for the opportunity to reinstall and clean out some of the crap from the failed program installations I’ve had in the past. Although I really rather would have liked to have chosen when I reinstalled rather than having it forced upon me.

  36. I’m having problems after installing as per your instructions on Ubuntu 18.04. Problem seems to be to do with libavcodec-extra:
    [email protected]:/home/john# apt -a list –upgradeable
    Listing… Done
    libavcodec-extra/bionic,bionic 7:4.1.3-0ppa1~18.04 all [upgradable from: 7:3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1]
    libavcodec-extra/bionic-updates,bionic-updates,bionic-security,bionic-security,now 7:3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1 all [installed,upgradable to: 7:4.1.3-0ppa1~18.04]
    libavcodec-extra/bionic,bionic 7:3.4.2-2 all

    If I try to install it using Synaptic, it higjhlights problems on dependencies before I do the Apply (i.e. actually do the install of that package).

  37. I posted a problem concerning libavcodec-extra. But it doesn’t show after a browser refresh. So I posted it again which gave duplicate comment. Is it posted?

  38. I’m new on Ubuntu
    Where is the ‘like’ button?

  39. YOU ARE AMAZING!! Thanks!!

  40. Wow !! Thank you so much

  41. I’ve purged wine and cyberdexter ppa: went Ok.
    I then started again at the beginning using your instructions. All went well (wine –version shows 5.0) except at end “6 not to upgrade”. According to apt there are 5 packages:
    [email protected]:/home/john# apt list –upgradeable
    Listing… Done
    ffmpeg/bionic 7:4.1.3-0ppa1~18.04 amd64 [upgradable from: 7:3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1]
    libasound2/bionic-updates 1.1.3-5ubuntu0.5 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.1.3-5ubuntu0.4]
    libasound2-data/bionic-updates,bionic-updates 1.1.3-5ubuntu0.5 all [upgradable from: 1.1.3-5ubuntu0.4]
    libavcodec-extra/bionic,bionic 7:4.1.3-0ppa1~18.04 all [upgradable from: 7:3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1]
    libchromaprint1/bionic 1.4.3-3~bionic1 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.4.3-1]
    Should I force an upgrade of these 5 packages?

  42. The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.0~bionic)
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages

    getting this error at the last step while installing wine

  43. Thanks for this. Have slight problem however. The install all seemed to go ok – no errors that i spotted. However, when i query wine version i get:

    [email protected]:~$ wine –version
    ERROR: ld.so: object ‘/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtk3-nocsd.so.0’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.
    wine-5.0

    after googling/reading about, i then tried also:

    sudo apt-get install libgtk3-nocsd0:i386
    – all ok

    – but same error comes up when querying wine version.

    i am using Ubuntu 18.04, BUT with Unity desktop running rather than Gnome.

    any suggestions?

    very many thanks.

    Jim,
    Thanks for sharing the tips for installing wine5.0 and it susessed!

  45. Thank you so much, You are a Genius!, Very useful.

  46. when you change the ‘eoan’ with ‘bionic’ in “sudo apt-add-repository ‘deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ eoan main'” you need to delete the PPA of ‘eoan’ and after this you can follow with “sudo apt update && sudo apt install –install-recommends winehq-stable”

    That work for me

    Sorry for my bad english

  47. how to use wine stable?
    wine-stable is not working after installlagtion

  48. Ji m Thank you for another great tutorial I always enjoy them as they are clear and a reliable source of info

  51. You’re the one! Thank you!!!

  52. OMG! I love you man! Wine – ughh: I hate that I have to use it. I hate it even more that it never seems to work – but you made a miracle happen for me.

    I never ran any ubuntu before 19.10 so none of the upgrade issues apply to me.
    I keep getting the following error messages
    E: The repository ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/ppa/ubuntu eoan Release’ does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

    I thought I did add ppa file multiple times but for some reason Firefox kept defaulting all downloads to “home” and now everything is a tangled mess.
    I NEED to run wine because all the messing with partitions fried windows and all I have is Ubuntu…I was really loving it till lately

    • Go to Software & Updates > Other Software tab, remove the repository lines mentioned in the output as they are no longer maintained.

  57. Thank You

  58. how to do for 64 bit?

  59. Thank you Ji m (and lutris) for gtting me out of dependancy hell. I had started to regret removing wine 3 and could not re-install it.
    wine –version
    wine-5.0
    Yay :-)

  60. worked like a charm! you’re a hero!

  61. thnk you sir.

  62. unable 32bits Open GL Libraires and cannot find xterm, how to fix it?

  63. thanks ji m

  64. A Linux Newbie June 7, 2020 at 9:56 am

    I don’t usually comment on the internet but i just gotta write this one. Thanks alot man! :) it really worked

    I used to have wine installed but i decided to do a clean install of linux since i downloaded alot of stuff that i eventually didnt need (using console so.. i felt lost on how to “clean” it) and i felt like a reset was the cleanest thing to do. when i tried installing wine i kept getting that dependency error

    something2 “winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.1~bionic)”

    This post helped me alot :) thanks again

  65. Can’t find system needs for that so the question is:
    Does this work for Lubuntu 18.04 too?

  66. Newby, tried to get Lubuntu 18.04 to work on an obselete laptop.
    Can’t find issues for minimal system needs for Wine, so my question is:
    Does this method work voor Lubuntu 18.04?

  67. thanks for the comment before step 1 :)

  68. Crikey Ji, that did the trick. Ubuntu 18.04 and I could not get wine installed until I found this article and followed the howto. Well done :)

  69. I am using UBUNTU 18.04 and I was having problems with package dependecies!
    But know I figured out this problem following your guide.

    Thank you so much!

  70. Jens Eckervogt July 4, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.1~xenial)
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Please help me to resolve this.
    Everytime i get this same error message.
    And i have been trying this since morning.

  74. Note this is the third time I’ve tried this and I started from scratch again.

    I followed all the instructions to the letter, copy and paste, and still get this error:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.1~eoan)
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    Why does it require wine-stable, wouldn’t that be part of the install in the first place from the winehq repositories or do I need to install wine-stable first?

    argh.

    I’ll see if I can figure this out.

    I appreciate your hard work on this but it’s not working for my HP 17 running Ubuntu Gnome 19.10.

    wine –help Display this help and exit
    wine –version Output version information and exit.
    but how to run program???

  79. Hi Ji!

    These instructions worked great for me! Thank you! I do think to simplify the installation instead of changing the release name for the winehq repository line, just use lsb_release -sc instead.

    sudo apt-add-repository ‘deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ ‘$(lsb_release -sc)’ main’

  80. Ji
    Thank you very much. Should have said that a while ago. I have used your tutorials several times and this has worked as the others have, GREAT!

    Keep up the tutorials, They are much appreciated.
    Kev
