Installing newest Wine from unzipped file


Just recently switched over to Linux and I'm loving it so far but I'm looking to install Wine and am unable to figure out the details on how to install after the archive manager unzipped it

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

Any reason why you don't install it via your Linux distrubution's package manager? You should be installing software from the package manager where-ever possible. Forget the Windows way when using Linux.

Any reason why you even need to use Wine? Chances are there's a Linux app that can do the same job.

+1 to using the package manager. What distribution of Linux are you running?

fedora
dnf install wine

debian ( and ubuntu )
apt-get install wine

Opensuse
zypper install wine
