I'm trying to install the libfaudio0 that WineHQ tells me I need too add, and I don't know what to do, I don't know how to install these packages I've never done something like this before, I'm using Linux Mint Tessa, but I came here because I know that Linux Mint is based off Ubuntu, and I don't know where to go for support with Linux Mint. How do I install libfaudio I have no clue how to do this. Here's the link to it.

    For questions about Mint you can use Unix & Linux. Here is off-topic because Mint isn't an official Ubuntu variant. – user880592 May 22 '19 at 22:00

    I don't see any reference to Linux Mint anywhere in this question anymore. Has the question been adequately rephrased to allow it to be reopened? The answer provided by @andrew-46 was extremely helpful in my vanilla Ubuntu 19.04 installation of Wine, so I think others may benefit as well. – justathoughtor2 Sep 13 '19 at 22:48
  • @justathoughtor2 Somebody has rolled the reference back in :) – andrew.46 Mar 24 at 2:36

Beginning with Wine 4.5 the wine-devel packages from WineHQ require libfaudio0 as a dependency. The Wine Wiki suggests that both i386 and amd64 libfaudio0 packages should be installed and I illustrate the required steps for Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver, although similar steps should work for 18.10 and 19.04:

For Ubuntu 18.04 first download both required Debian packages:

cd ~/Desktop
wget https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/xUbuntu_18.04/amd64/libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_amd64.deb
wget https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/xUbuntu_18.04/i386/libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_i386.deb

if the links are broken, you can still find the files from here, you just need to open the i386 and amd64 folders to find the updated files.

Next install the two files and then attend to some missing files:

cd ~/Desktop
sudo dpkg -i libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_amd64.deb libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_i386.deb
sudo apt --fix-broken install

And now you should be right to install and run the very latest versions of Wine from WineHQ!
