Winepak What happens if we mix Wine, video games and Flatpak?

You will know the Wine project, that compatibility layer to be able to run native software for Microsoft Windows in other Unix-like operating systems such as GNU / Linux. That also includes the video games that come out for the Microsoft operating system, which will be compatible with our favorite kernel thanks to all the development effort put into the Wine project as we all know.

Well, if in addition to that we add another ingredient to the already succulent recipe, the ingredient of the universal packages (specifically in this case the Flatpak) how much they are giving to talk about now and how many users are liking so much for its ease of installation, security, and other additional features that they offer to distro users, the dish that you crave becomes even more interesting if it the first paragraph seemed little to you ...Well, when we have all those ingredients and we put them in the shaker, the result is called Winepak, a very interesting project that if you are a gamer you will thank and enjoy. It is neither more nor less than a repository of Flatpak packages for video games and Windows applications to run on Wine. Sounds good, right? Its goal is to make the installation and running of this software for Windows easy to install and run under Wine in Linux environments.

In addition, Winepak not only comes to make things easier, but also to solve some compatibility issues, and is that not all versions of Wine support all software and sometimes it is necessary to install different versions of libraries to solve certain problems. With Winepak we simply install and the application or video game will simply work well without complications. Despite the scope of the project, it is still young and does not have too many programs and video games at the moment, but it will grow ...

    interesting hopefully more applications will be added

    the Flathub and Winepak repositories. Use these commands to add them:
    flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://dl.flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
    flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists winepak https://dl.winepak.org/repo/winepak.flatpakrepo
