Wine Dependencies

Alexandr Oleynikov edited this page Aug 17, 2019 · 13 revisions

Although Lutris provides and uses its own Wine builds, we still recommend you install all of Wine's dependencies to ensure a working experience. The easiest way to get them is to install Wine system-wide through your package manager.

The version of Wine installed should not matter, it is not even required for Wine to be present as long as all dependencies are satisfied. Although, Lutris will display a warning message if it cannot detect an existing installation of Wine.

Distribution-specific instructions

Below are a list of commands specific to your distribution. Please, follow them before asking for support.

Arch/Antergos/Manjaro/Other Arch derivatives

Enable multilib:

To enable multilib repository, uncomment the [multilib] section in /etc/pacman.conf

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Upgrade your system:

sudo pacman -Syu 

Execute the following command:

sudo pacman -S wine-staging 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 libgpg-error lib32-libgpg-error alsa-plugins lib32-alsa-plugins alsa-lib lib32-alsa-lib libjpeg-turbo lib32-libjpeg-turbo sqlite lib32-sqlite libxcomposite lib32-libxcomposite libxinerama lib32-libgcrypt libgcrypt 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

Disclaimer: this may seem like a lot of libraries to install, but in order for games to install and work correctly, you will need them.

Ubuntu/Linux Mint/Ubuntu derivatives

If your system is 64 bit, enable 32 bit architecture (if you haven't already):

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 

Download and add the repository key:

wget -nc
sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Add the repository:

For this version: Use this command:
Ubuntu 19.04 sudo apt-add-repository 'deb disco main'
Ubuntu 18.10 sudo apt-add-repository 'deb cosmic main'
Ubuntu 18.04
Linux Mint 19.x
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb bionic main'
Ubuntu 16.04
Linux Mint 18.x
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb xenial main'

Update packages:

sudo apt-get update

Install Wine Staging:

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

If you receive this error: The following packages have unmet dependencies, execute following command instead:

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable wine-stable wine-stable-i386 wine-stable-amd64

For compatibility reasons, install these additional libraries:

sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

These libraries may be used by games, launchers, or applications. E.g. Origin,, Uplay etc. It's good practice to install these in addition to Wine.


Execute following command:

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

Other distributions

To install Wine on other distributions, please, consult the WineHQ Download page for more information.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
