Wine, a free open source implementation for running Windows apps on Linux, released version 6.9 last night. Here’s how to install it on Ubuntu 21.04, Ubuntu 20.10, Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 18.04.

How to install Wine 6.9 on Ubuntu:
Wine has its own apt repository for Ubuntu and Linux Mint based systems. Open the terminal from the system app launcher. Once open, run the following commands one at a time.
1.) Run the command to enable the 32-bit architecture (if you don’t have one).
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Enter your user password (without asterisk feedback) when prompted and press Enter to continue.
2.) Execute the following command to install the repository key.
wget -O - https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key | sudo apt-key add -
3.) Add the wine repository using the command.
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ focal main'
Important: This command requires you to replace the focal with:
