How to install Wine on Debian


Hi there,

I am running Debian Jessie 64 and wish to install Wine to run windows program, it was straight forward on Ubuntu and Mint but no so on pure Debian and LMDE, I done all updates and installed Wine on it via software manager but it won't run, what I got is the wine run time but it does nothing, I followed the wiki but without success. I also tried CrossOver and it worked, but I don't want to spend on a commerical application when I could do it for free. Could someone share with me your success story thanks !

you gave actually no information about your problem. installing wine is quite simple, just goto www.winehq.com and check wiki: https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Installing_Wine and/or download page: https://www.winehq.org/download and/or here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Wine_Install..._Configuration
if you have any trouble please write what have you tried and what's happened exactly.

I installed via
Code:
apt-get install wine
and it worked exactly as expected.

Pretty sure the package manager has it.

I do know that it didn't take a lot to get it working on my flash drive a while back. Might have to be a bit more broad in your install. I think I usually might add in all wine stuff. Like sudo apt-get install wine*

How to install Wine on Debian

I did apt-get install wine on Jessie (64) and there is a wine runtime entry added to Nautilus supposed for executing ms apps but it actually does nothing, but when I did the same installation to Mint/Ubuntu there is an additional program loader installed, from there I simply open the ms apps to kick start it. I did follow the wiki to install additional backports and stuffs without success, the links or detail not usable , it seems the wiki is outdated or incorrect, pls someone point me to the correct direction with valid info. thanks !

After searching the internet I found the correct link to install the backports, now I got the windows program loader to execute windows app.
