How to install / upgrade wine 1.7 in Ubuntu:

For Ubuntu users, besides building from the source you have to wait a few days for the official PPA updated for the latest binaries. Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, and Ubuntu 14.04 are supported so far.

To add the PPA, open terminal from the Dash or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard. When it opens, run command:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

After that, upgrade Wine by installing available updates via “Software Updater” utility. Or install wine1.7 for the first time by running below two commands one by one:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine1.7

Since Wine PPA is not updating for Ubuntu 12.04, Precise users can use this unofficial PPA to get the latest wine release.

Before adding this PPA, you should remove the official PPA via command:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Then add the new PPA for Ubuntu 12.04:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ricotz/unstable

Finally upgrade Wine1.7 through Update Manager, or install it via the previous two sudo apt-get command.


The official Wine PPA has stopped updating for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Since it still provides Wine 1.7.18, the latest development release has reached Wine 1.7.34.

Thanks to Rico Tzschichholz, a member from Gnome3 Team PPA has made the Wine 1.7.34 into PPA available for Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04.

Wine 1.7.34

To add the PPA, open terminal from the Dash or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T. When it opens, run command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/unstable

Install Wine 1.7.34 in Ubuntu 12.04

After that, update system package cache and install/upgrade Wine1.7 via Software Updater or by running below commands one by one in terminal:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine1.7

That’s it.


The development version of Wine has reached the 1.7.34 release. Now it supports surround sound with DirectSound.

Besides that, Wine 1.7.34 brings:

  • Better text run support in DirectWrite.
  • Many HTML engine fixes.
