How to get out of Wine Dependency hell (aka I just installed Lutris to run wine games and *forgot* to install everything wine related):

Antergos/Manjaro/Arch derivatives (enable multilib in pacman.conf):


sudo pacman -Sy
sudo pacman -S wine-staging
sudo pacman -S giflib lib32-giflib libpng lib32-libpng libldap lib32-libldap gnutls lib32-gnutls mpg123 lib32-mpg123 openal lib32-openal v4l-utils lib32-v4l-utils libpulse lib32-libpulse alsa-plugins lib32-alsa-plugins alsa-lib lib32-alsa-lib libjpeg-turbo lib32-libjpeg-turbo libxcomposite lib32-libxcomposite libxinerama lib32-libxinerama ncurses lib32-ncurses opencl-icd-loader lib32-opencl-icd-loader libxslt lib32-libxslt libva lib32-libva gtk3 lib32-gtk3 gst-plugins-base-libs lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs vulkan-icd-loader lib32-vulkan-icd-loader cups samba dosbox

Solus:


sudo eopkg install wine wine-devel wine-32bit-devel

Ubuntu:


wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key
sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-staging

Mint:


wget -nc https://repos.wine-staging.com/wine/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key

# For Linux Mint 17.x:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ trusty main'

# For Linux Mint 18.x:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial main'

# For Linux Mint 19.x:

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'

Then:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-staging

If apt-get complains about missing dependencies, install them, then repeat the last two steps (update and install).

Debian:


sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386


wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key

# For Debian Wheezy add the following line:


deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ wheezy main

# For Debian Jessie this one:


deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ jessie main

# For Debian Stretch this one:


deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ stretch main

# For Debian Buster this one:


deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ buster main

# And for Debian Sid this one:


deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ sid main


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install winehq-staging
