Wine 2.0.1, the first point release of the Wine 2.0 stable, was released one day ago. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 17.04, and derivatives.
Wine 2.0.1 has a total of 47 bug-fixes including fixes to Need For Speed, QQ 2013, SC2, git for Windows, incorrect GPU detection, and other bug-fixes. Besides the nearly four dozen fixes, Wine 2.0.1 also deprecates the wineinstall tool.
How to Install Wine 2.0.1 stable in Ubuntu:
The official Wine repository has moved away from launchpad, the new repository now provides both the latest development and stable Wine packages.
To add the repository, open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run following commands one by one:
1. Download the key:
2. Add the key to your system:
sudo apt-key add winehq.key
3. Add the new Wine repository:
sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/'
After added the repository, install Wine Stable 2.0.1 either via following commands:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install winehq-stable
Or use Synaptic Package Manager:
NOTE: I’ve got an unmet dependencies issue while installing winehq-stable package in Ubuntu 16.04. It can be fixed by manually run command:
sudo apt install libasound2-plugins:i386
When I enter to wine configuraton, and click on Windows Version, I only have the option to select up to Windows 7. How can I get Windows 10 support?
Can not run binary file: Incorrect executable format
That command lately installs wine2.0.2, which is not stable and buggy. I got literally wine bugs crawling through desktop panel.
Any instructions on how to reinstall to 2.0.1
The old release packages are available for download at the wine download server, grab the 2.0.1 package for your Ubuntu edition and install it via Gdebi or dpkg command. And you may first remove wine 2.0.2
