I have the PureOS with GNOME3 but am having difficulty installing WINE. I need Wine in order to be able to use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for my job. I am a rank beginner in Linux, so if someone could walk me through the steps as if teaching a baby I´d really appreciate it! :) I tried using instructions for Debian, upon which PureOS is based, but it was too complex for me. I don´t know how to use a text editor in Linux.
I used Nano text editor, and, yes, it was incredibly easy to use! I followed the instructions on the WineHQ website for Debian, but this is the message I got:
q@q-pc:/etc/apt$ sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: winehq-stable : Depends: wine-stable (= 5.0.0~bullseye) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. q@q-pc:/etc/apt$
I also tried this command to install Wine:
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt update && sudo apt install wine wine32 wine64 libwine libwine:i386 fonts-wine Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package wine32 is a virtual package provided by: winehq-staging 5.0.0~bullseye winehq-stable 5.0.0~bullseye winehq-devel 5.0.0~bullseye You should explicitly select one to install.
