Hello David,

Please can i ask you a question concerning your helpful topic (thanks a lot). Everything worked perfect on my ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but now i need to upgrade to the latest stage version in order to work with yabridge. How can i do that please? Which steps i have to take to do it correctly?

Thanks a lot!!


Follow the procedure in How to Install Wine on Ubuntu 18.04 LTSNew Window Icon but do the installation using

$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

instead of

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

This will install the most recent version of Wine Staging. If you already followed that procedure to install any previous version of Wine, the repository key, the repository, and libfaudio0 should already be present, so you can skip those steps.

I have done this many times to upgrade (and downgrade) versions of Wine, so it should work for you. Let me know if you run into trouble.


Thank you very much for your advice, David! It works :-)

Thanks for your wine installation tutorial. Concise, clear, and worked as advertised (fyi my installed version ended up being 5.0.2 and not 5.0.1).


Thanks! Glad to know it worked for you.
