How to Install Wine on antiX 19

About this page

The procedure on this page installs the most recently released versions of Wine Stable, Development, or Staging, which support both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows apps and are appropriate for 64-bit computers with 64-bit operating systems.

If you need to install 32-bit Windows apps on a 32-bit computer, see Pure 32-bit Wine on antiX. You can also use the procedure on that page to install pure 32-bit Wine on a 64-bit computer.

Check installed architectures

Verify 64-bit architecture. The following command should respond with "amd64".

$ dpkg --print-architecture

See if 32-bit architecture is already installed. The following command should respond with "i386"

$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

If "i386" is not displayed, execute the following.

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Recheck with

$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Add the WineHQ repository

Get and install the repository key.

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

$ sudo -H gpg -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/winehq.key.gpg --dearmor winehq.key

The next three commands add the WineHQ repository for Debian 10 Buster to the operating system's list of repositories.

$ echo 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ buster main' > /tmp/winehq.list

$ sudo cp /tmp/winehq.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

$ rm /tmp/winehq.list

Update the package database.

$ sudo apt update

Install libfaudio0

Beginning with Wine 5.0, both Wine Stable and Wine Development require amd64 and i386 versions of libfaudio0, but libfaudio0 is not available from the repository. Therefore, libfaudio0 must be downloaded and installed manually. See libfaudio0 special handlingNew Window Icon.

The next two commands download the libfaudio0 .deb packages into the local active directory.

$ wget -nc https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Debian_10/amd64/libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_amd64.deb

$ wget -nc https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Debian_10/i386/libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_i386.deb

And these two commands do the installations.

$ sudo apt install ./libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_amd64.deb

$ sudo apt install ./libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_i386.deb

When the installations are complete, consider moving the two libfaudio0 .deb files to a permanent location, or just delete them.

Install Wine

The next command will install Wine Stable. If you prefer Wine Development or Wine Staging, replace winehq-stable with either winehq-devel or with winehq-staging.

$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

Verify the installation succeeded.

$ wine --version
