How to Update Wine in Ubuntu


Wine is a software program that allows users to run Windows programs on the Linux operating system. Windows programs will not natively run on the Linux operating system. The default Ubuntu Linux software repositories contain a version of Wine, but it is not usually the latest version. Wine HQ, the Wine website, maintains an Ubuntu software repository that includes the latest version. Adding the WineHQ repository to the software sources allows you to download and install the latest version using the Ubuntu package manager.

  • Right-click on the desktop and click on the "Terminal" option to open a terminal window.

  • Type the command "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" to add the WineHQ software repository. Type your password, when prompted.

  • Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the package information.

  • Type the command "sudo apt-get remove --purge wine" to remove the current package of wine installed on your computer.

  • Type the command "sudo apt-get install wine<version>" to install the latest version of wine. Replace "<version>" with the current Wine version number.
