Wine - run Windows applications on Linux

Wine provides binary compatibility, support for graphics, sound, as well as support for modems, networks, scanners, keyboards, and other devices. Very often users have the need to use win apps and games in Linux. Therefore, Wine is very popular and in demand.
Although personally, I use a paid program called CrossOver. There is also a free program, based on Wine - Playonlinux and Vineyard.

Installation stable version into Linux Mint:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine winetricks
winecfg

Winetricks has a simple GUI. To run it enter:

winetricks --gui


Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-devel
sudo apt-get install winetricks
winecfg

Wine - run Windows applications on Linux

You will be prompted to download and install Wine Gecko and Wine Mono. Agree and wait for the process to finish. Now you can install Windows programs, utilities, and games.

Good Luck!!!
