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:
$ 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 hp10biipemu.zip was downloaded. $ unzip hp10biipemu.zip \# inflating: HP10bII+Emulator.exe
Type the following command to install the download software…
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' dir \## 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.
