How to Install Wine 7 on Ubuntu 22.04

This article shows you how to set up Wine 7 version so that you can run Windows applications with Exe extension on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS version from Linux distributions.

Wine is free and open source software that allows users to run Windows applications and software in a Unix or Linux environment.

Unlike virtual machines, it translates application calls recognized by the Windows system so that the application can run in a near-native environment.

In this way, software designed for Windows systems can be run without significant memory or performance issues. In other cases, some installed Wine programs run much better on Linux than they do in a Windows environment.
