I installed Wine via Appcenter. All good. But when I wanted to start 32bit program it said - wine32 wasn't installed, please install.

So I try to install Wine32, but then it goes:

 ivan@ivan-linux:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install wine32

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 wine32:i386 : Depends: libwine:i386 (= 3.0-1ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

But when I try to pinpoint dep. of libwine:386 it goes way back to pulseaudio 32bit and asks to remove some crucial Elementary packages, like Elementary desktop.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libwine:i386 : Depends: libpulse0:i386 (>= 0.99.1) but it is not going to be installed
                Recommends: libasound2-plugins:i386 but it is not going to be installed

So I stop there. IF not this is what it wants:

ivan@ivan-linux:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get install libpulse0:i386

  • Can you provide more information of all the steps it had you take? – MasterOfTheTiger Dec 16 '19 at 11:16
  • Sadly I cannot, because I'd have to do it all over again. Basically I get to a point of installing a certain i386 dependancy that would make a major change in elementary desktop with so many packages removed. All that tried to install Wine would know what I'm talking about. So I'm counting on those that installed it successfully on Hera 5.1, to share what they did and how! – Ivan Dec 16 '19 at 11:29
