Since Canonical decided not to include i386 packages support and I get errors during Playonlinux / Crossover / wine installations, what is a workaround to address this issue?

It's a known issue, and I'm asking if someone solved it.


Execute the following commands for a Wine installation:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -qO - https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ disco main'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
  • Does winehq-stable include i386 architecture or you have to force it with winehq-stable:i386? – user.dz Oct 21 at 8:58

    here, i386 version of WINE is installed. WINE x64 is only installed (i guess) using sudo apt install wine64 – pymym213 Oct 21 at 9:03
