How to update Wine to the latest version?

The default version of Wine in Ubuntu 12.04 is 1.4. I would like to install the latest version of wine. I wonder how to do that? Thanks!

Install latest Wine in Ubuntu via PPA. Open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.5
sudo apt-get install winetricks

Note: The above answer is outdated now and only goes up to Wine 1.8. For the latest Wine version, you can add this repository instead:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
sudo apt update
sudo apt winehq-devel

From the answer to this question.

  • Is 1.5 a stable version of wine?
