Welcome to our guide on how to install Wine 6 on Fedora 33/32/31/30. Wine is an open source software that allows you to run Microsoft Windows applications on Linux. Read more on Wine 6 release and new features. By leveraging its Winelib library, you can compile Windows applications to help with porting them to Unix-like systems.

Step 1: Add WineHQ repository

Start by adding WineHQ repository with the latest stable packages for Wine.

Fedora 33:

sudo dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/32/winehq.repo

Fedora 32:

sudo dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/32/winehq.repo

Fedora 31:

sudo dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/31/winehq.repo

Fedora 30:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/30/winehq.repo

Fedora 29

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/29/winehq.repo

Step 2: Install Wine 6 on Fedora 33/32/31/30/29

After adding the repository, install any of the following Wine 6 packages on Fedora 33/32/31/30/29.

Stable branch – (Recommended)

sudo dnf -y install winehq-stable

Development branch – Only for tests

sudo dnf install winehq-devel

Staging branch – Bleeding edge

sudo dnf install winehq-staging

More information on installed package can be checked with the rpm command.

$ rpm -qi winehq-stable

The version of wine installed can also be checked using.

$ wine --version

To configure wine, run:

$ winecfg
configure wine

Step 4: Install winetricks

Winetricks is a helper script to download and install various redistributable runtime libraries needed to run some programs in Wine. These may include replacements for components of Wine using closed source libraries.

wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks
sudo mv winetricks /usr/local/bin/
install winetricks fedora


That’s awesome. Now visit the Wine Application Database which has over 20,000 applications and choose the ones to run in Wine.
