Installing Zorin Windows App Support - missing dependencies

Ok it says "Wine64 is already the newest version"

I think this may be what is tangling everything up. Somewhere, somehow, wine files got corrupted.
So it is conflicting with what is installed vs. what is to be installed.

sudo apt --fix--broken install

sudo apt remove wine* --purge && sudo apt autoremove

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

sudo apt install --install-recommends wine-stable -y

apt remove wine* didn't work so i did uninstalled these 3 manually:


Can you open Software & Updates and send a screenshot of the First Open Tab?

What is the output of:

sudo apt install libfaudio0


dpkg --print-foreign-architectures


Maybe the key is not working...?

wget -nc
sudo -H gpg -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/winehq.key.gpg --dearmor winehq.key

sudo apt update && sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

This makes no sense... it is acting as though the repository is not there. But it is there.
What does

sudo apt install winetricks


That appears to have come from the Zorin Repo, not the Wine Repo.

should i reinstall the os to see it would install or not

That is a viable option if you are comfortable with it. :slight_smile:

yes, I'll do that in the next few hours, but there was another problem this time that I installed zorin os I would like to check in the next time.

applications installed via flathub often don't have some privileges or access to certain things like when I installed telegram from flathub it couldn't use OpenGL for rendering or openrgb didn't have the overall access to any hardware.

btw should I mark any post as a solution now?

Only when it is considered solved...

This is known for both Snap or Flatpak.
Both of those "double sandbox" applications, preventing them full proper access to the system. A lot of the time, this is not a big deal, but when it needs access, this becomes a very big deal.
