The developers in charge of the Wine project have released just a few days ago the new version of Wine, reaching its new version Wine 3.14 with which it comes with several bug fixes and a few improvements over its previous version.

Wine ("Wine Is Not an Emulator" recursive acronym) is a program capable of running a Windows compatibility layer on Linux, MacOS and BSD.

Wine is an excellent completely free alternative to the Windows API for GNU / Linux systems and can also optionally use native Windows DLLs, if available.

In addition, Wine offers a development kit as well as a Windows program loader, so developers can easily modify many Windows programs that run under Unix x86, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.

Recently, Wine released development version 3.14, in this version, some improvements and bug fixes were included.

De The new improvements that came with this new version can be highlighted:

  • Added support for DXTn decompression texture.
  • Postponement support for MSI install shares.
  • Japanese keyboard support was added in DirectInput.
  • More improvements to the standard task dialog.
  • A little more icons in Shell32.
  • And above all various bug fixes.

Si are users of Ubuntu, Linux Mint and derivatives, it is necessary that they follow the following instructions to be able to have a Wine installation and run it on the system without problems.

This step will only be done by those who use a 64-bit version of the system, we are going to enable the 32-bit architecture in the system

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Now we are going to add the following to the system:

wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key

sudo apt-key add Release.key

We add the repository:

sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/

sudo apt-get update

Done this, We proceed to install the essential packages for Wine to run smoothly on the system:

sudo apt-get --download-only install winehq-devel

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

sudo apt-get --download-only dist-upgrade

While for those who are users of Debian and systems based on it, should do the following.

They must first enable 32-bit architecture on the system

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

We proceed to download the Wine public key:

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key

We add it to the system

sudo apt-key add Release.key

Now We must edit the sources.list and add the Wine repository to the system, we do this with:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

If they are Debian 9 users add:

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/stretch main

Or if are Debian 8 users:

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/jessie main

We update the list of packages with:

sudo apt-get update

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

For, In the case of Fedora and its derivatives, we must add the appropriate repository to the version we are using.

Fedora 27:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/27/winehq.repo

Fedora 28:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/28/winehq.repo

And finally we must install Wine with:

sudo dnf install winehq-devel

In the case of Arch Linux, Manjaro, Antergos or any distribution based on Arch Linux We can install this new version from its official distribution repositories.

The command to install it is:

sudo pacman -sy wine

    For Linux Mint this repository gives problems:
    sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/
    whether you try to add with apt-add or by the Update Manager, it gives security problems.
    Any idea how to fix it?
    From already thank you very much

    It does not work in Mint 19, among other things this message appears:

    "Winehq-devel package is not available, but some other package references
    to the. This may mean that the package is missing, obsolete, or only
    it is available from some other source.

    Greetings.

    I had installed Linux Xubuntu after years without installing any Linux with the intention of giving Linux another chance, moved, among other things because I had read about Wine ... I thought it would be to double click on the program, press next and accept and it would be installed lol ... Illusive of me. Just reading the word repository already produces something for me, it sounds like a suppository to me.
    I'll be back when Linux is easier to use.
