Wine executes Windows applications on Linux.
Most Windows applications (especially older ones) are built for the 32-bit
microprocessor architecture (i386). To execute 32-bit applications,
the underlying operating system needs to support this architecture.
To enable the installation of software packages for the i386 architecture,
execute the following command:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt update
Some 32-bit applications, like games, require graphics acceleration.
If the proprietary Nvidia driver is used,
install the libraries for the i386 architecture:
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-libs:i386
If the generic GL library is used,
install the library for the i386 architecture:
sudo apt install libgl1:i386
The following command installs 32-bit and 64-bit variants of
sudo apt install wine wine32:i386 wine64
To execute a 32-bit Windows application, change to the application directory
wine with the Windows executable as parameter:
cd '/mnt/ntfs/games/My Game' wine MyGame.exe
