This guide is very good to install WineHQ in Linux Mint 19 Bionic. The repository for Bionic does not exist yet, for this reason it is advisible to use “artful main” for the time being.
I followed this guide to the end, checked version and the installation completed properly. I installed Wine HQ Stable version wine-3.0.1
The next step, which is not mentioned in this guide, is the configuration of WineHQ.
After you complete the installation you will not see any icons of Wine in your system. This will only happen after configuration and installation of Windows apps.
To configure you need to run the command winecfg
You will be requested to install a couple of apps Mono and Gecko. Just click the “Install” button on the pop up window. The installation of Gecko will show up twice, which is normal, just click the “Install” button twice. After you have completed the installation of these two apps a new window will pop up, the Wine configuration window. Nothing special here, just click the OK button.
Now you are ready to install Windows applications in your Linux system.
Right click the “.exe” files, select “open with wine” and let the installer run the installation of your apps.
I use wine for foobar2000 which allows to listen to DSD files and make audio convertion to several formats.
