Nowadays when we need the urgent need to use a certain program in our Ubuntu, we always use Wine, a fabulous program that more than one will have done you a great favor. However there are still certain programs that are reluctant to work either due to a problem with the graphics card as in some video games or for lack of a library.
It seems that this has affected us for more than one reason the guys at the Pipelight project have developed a Wine fork called Wine Staging that is based on Wine but with lots of bug fixes and fixes to make it work better.
In addition, the developers have announced that they want to modify the system of updates and corrections so that they are faster so that the Community benefits and also creates a section of experiences and suggestions where feedback is sent to the project.
The developers themselves are aware of what they have created so they do not offer the full version in their repositories, for this you need to install part and then perform the installation of Wine Staging. However in some repositories everything has been uploaded to facilitate installation.
Installing Wine Staging on Ubuntu
In the case of Ubuntu, the repositories intended for the installation of Wine Staging are not complete so we must first install Wine using the Ubuntu Software Center or terminal
sudo apt-get install wine
Once we have finished, we send the Wine Staging repository and proceed with its installation as follows:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-staging
This will start the installation of Wine Staging and will be applied to the installation we have of Wine, so that the modifications and corrections of Wine Staging will be ready. This must be remembered because if it were the other way around, i.e. first installing Wine Staging and then Wine, the installation would not be effective and we would only have Wine. Now all you have to do is try something that will be worth it.
