How to Install Wine on openSUSE Tumbleweed

These instructions explain how to install a recent version of Wine Development or Wine Staging. Wine Stable is not available.

Winetricks will be installed along with Wine.

During testing, refreshing repositories with zypper refresh generated an error due to not finding the installation disk/iso. Opening the Software app (YAST Software), locating the list of repositories (under Configuration), and disabling the installation medium repository ("openSUSE-20210810-0", in my case) fixed the problem.

Do a full system upgrade


> sudo zypper refresh
> sudo zypper dist-upgrade

Add repository

The following command (a single line with no line breaks) adds the openSUSE Tumbleweed Wine repository.

> sudo zypper addrepo

Update the package database

When zypper refresh asks you to trust it, you can respond with either t or a.

> sudo zypper refresh

Install wine

The next command will install Wine Development. If you prefer Wine Staging, replace wine with wine-staging.

> sudo zypper install wine

Verify the installation.

> wine --version
