So how to Install Wine 5.15 in Ubuntu / Linux Mint?

Winehq can be installed in Ubuntu and Linux Mint via Wine apt repository

Step 1: Install the dependencies
sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

Step 2: Enable the 32-bit architecture and download the repository key
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -nc
sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Step 3: Add wine repository to the system
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb<distname> main'
Users need to replace manually the <distname> with the distribution name focal for Ubuntu 20.04 , LinuxMint 20, bionic for LinuxMint 19.x, Ubuntu 19.x and xenial for LinuxMint 18.x,Ubuntu 18.x.

For Ubuntu 19.04 and lesser versions, users run the below command to have libfaudio0 in the repository.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport
Step 4: Update the repository
sudo apt update
Step 5: Install wine 5.11
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-devel
Step 6: Run wine 5.15

Open the windows application by using the below command here i am opening internet explorer
wine <program name>
wine iexplore.exe

 For Un-installation use the below command

sudo apt-get remove --autoremove wine-stable wine-stable-amd64


  1. sudo apt-add-repository 'deb main'
    Sorry, but there could be an error around this because you get:
    E: Malformed entry 58 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list (Component)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.

    1. It should be as follows:
      sudo apt-add-repository 'deb main'
      Note the space before and after.
      You will need to get into "sources.list" and delete the 2 lines that were wrong, they will likely be at the end. or you will find this error come up every time you update.

  2. Add your ubuntu distro name in place of

    sudo apt-add-repository 'deb main'

    Eg: sudo apt-add-repository 'deb main'

  3. blogger seems to take out the distro! the correct line should be using focal as example
    sudo apt-add-repository 'deb focal main'
    please note the space after ubuntu/
