Linux Wine-HQ Installation
Here is the procedure to install Wine Compatibility Layer into a Linux based Computer running Ubuntu Distribution with GNOME Graphical User Interface. As this is Linux, we need to open up the Linux Terminal run the commands.
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -O - https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ focal main'
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
And to check if it has been properly installed:
# > 5.0.1

It should launch the application software.
Next step is to create a short on the desktop to launch the application. A copy of the desktop launcher is stored in the $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs folder.
ls $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/'HP Calculators'
# 'HP 10bII+ Virtual Calculator.desktop'
cp $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/'HP Calculators'/'HP 10bII+ Virtual Calculator.desktop' $HOME/Desktop
Next, right click on the HP10bII+.desktop icon and select Allow Launching.
This will convert the raw icon to a finished launcher. From here on, you could use the Launcher to start the application.
