Winepak Applications

A collection of flatpak manifest for building Microsoft Windows applications with Wine via flatpak.

Instructions

Remember run all flatpak commands as a user, root and sudo are not needed.

Sdk & Platform

First you need to build and install the winepak Sdk & Platform. You can do so at winepak/winepak-sdk-images.

Some applications use the stable branch of winepak (which uses stable wine) while others use the staging branch of winepak (which uses wine-staging). Build the branches you'll need.

Building an application

Now with the runtime installed we can build an application with wine. Flatpak will default the build to the systems arch, x86_64 = 64bit and i386 = 32bit. You can specify the arch by passing --arch=ARCH, remove this flag if you don't need it.

To build an application like tld.domain.Application we have two build options.

Repo

The repo version exports the build to a repo, in this case winepak. You then need to install the application via the local repo.

flatpak-builder --arch=ARCH --force-clean --repo=winepak builds tld.domain.Application/tld.domain.Application.yml

Now to install simple run the application. Remember if you don't build the application with a GPG key then you will be forced to install the application with --user.

flatpak install winepak tld.domain.Application

Direct

The direct method allows you to install a build directly from source without the need of a repo, this is done by running:

flatpak-builder --user --arch=ARCH --force-clean --install builds tld.domain.Application/tld.domain.Application.yml

Run the application

As easy as:

flatpak run tld.domain.Application
