How to install windows application on linux ubuntu 22.04



Wine is an application that allows you to run Windows programs on a Linux system. Wine is similar to an emulator, but with a different technology that improves performance.

In this tutorial learn how to install Wine on Ubuntu.

Step 1: Verify Ubuntu 32-bit or 64-bit system

Wine uses a different application for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu.
To view CPU details, enter the command:

The CPU op-mode(s) field tells you which architecture you are using:
CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit: You have a 32-bit OS
CPU op-mode(s): 64-bit: You have a 64-bit OS
CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit, 64-bit: You support both

Step 2: Install Wine from Default Repositories

Installing Wine from the default Ubuntu repositories is the easiest option. However, be aware that it may not provide the latest version.

1. Start by updating the apt repository package list. This ensures the latest stable version of Wine is installed.

sudo apt update

2. To install 64-bit Wine, enter the following:

sudo apt install wine64

To install 32-bit Wine, enter the following:

sudo apt install wine32

Step 3: Verify Wine Version Installed
After the operation completes, verify the installation by checking the running version:

wine --version

Check Wine version to confirm installation.
Installing Wine from the official Ubuntu repository will always provide a stable install. However, the repositories may not include the latest versions.
