In elementary OS you can install wine either via the AppCenter (search for wine and click Install) or via the command line:

sudo apt install wine
  • can't install it from the appcenter but the command worked, thanks

So I had to follow the link below before I could install WINEHQ because I keep getting the command not found.


after you fix the command not found issue go back to wineHQ and the installs will work.
