sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

Now after this I simply searched for Wine on my computer and it doesn't show up. What do I do now?

  • Playonlinux hs the same functions as wine? – faisal arefin Nov 23 '18 at 6:43
  • PlayOnLinux works as a front end and will still use wine as back end – Kulfy Nov 23 '18 at 21:48

Wine doesn't have any kind of front-end. It's just a background kinda app. Thus, it isn't listed in applications. But it is still there. You can check it by running any .exe Windows compatible program.

There are some front-end available in Software center of which I use PlayOnLinux. To install PlayOnLinux, run

sudo apt-get install playonlinux
