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 - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb focal main'
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

And to check if it has been properly installed:

wine --version
# > 5.0.1

wine control
# prompted to install wine momo
# prompted to also install geko
# both need complete the installation in order to do the following steps.

Download software into Download folder. Type the following command to check the file was downloaded.

ls ~/.wine/drive_c/users/$USER/Downloads
# in this example, we assumed that was downloaded. 

#  inflating: HP10bII+Emulator.exe

Type the following command to install the download software...

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/$USER/Downloads/HP10bII+Emulator.exe

Follow the wizard to complete the installation. After installation, run the following command to test...

cd "/home/$USER/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Hewlett-Packard/HP 10bII+ Virtual Calculator"
## 10bII+_compact.bmp 10bII+_small.bmp HPUpdateCheck.dll segments.bmp
## ...
## HP10bII+.exe HP_10bII+_Users_Guide.pdf
wine  HP10bII+.exe

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.
