I'm using WINE for a few applications. Recently, I've needed to update the WINE package that was installed via the software manager. The version I have is 1.6.2, while the latest dev release, according to WineHQ, is 1.9.17. I can download and extract the tarball, but I get this whenever I try to configure it (using --enable-win64 and --without-freetype options):

configure: libxcursor 64-bit development files not found, the Xcursor extension won't be supported.

Do I need to install additional packages (the ones not found, for example) in order to upgrade to a new version of WINE? Or am I approaching this incorrectly?

  • (1) those are only warnings, wine should work (although I suspect there were errors after that). (2) You're not upgrading wine you're installing a new wine by compiling it from source. (3) Yes, you definitely want the *-dev packages to compile wine from source. (4) You probably should post the full command you executed (i suspect it was: ./configure --enable-win64 --without-freetype but someone may read that wrong)

  • Is there a way to update my preexisting WINE installation (the one installed via the software manager)?

  • You could use wine 1.8 from ubuntu-wine ppa, they didn't create a 1.9 release yet though. Mint uses ubnutu repositories, so it should work (and work without breaking anything which is also quite important)

Try this:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
wine --version
