KDE Neon cannot be installed wine winehq-stable

I would recommend

I “think” you should be able to migrate/there might be a way to migrate your existing wine prefixes to bottles but dont quote me on that.

This should make wine and its dependencies consistent for you and separate from the system :smiley:


Yeah, I was thinking in that one too as a solution.

Thanks for that reminder.

EDIT: The application that I was using under Wine is Sketchup Pro 2021.

Now some deps are already installed when creating the Bottle, but that application needs vcrun2017 and I don’t find it inside the Bottle to install it (in deps list). Any tips? THanks.

just install vcrun2019 it includes 2015 & 2017

There is no vcrun2019 on the list. Sorry first time using Bottles.

Also trying to run Sketchup installed fails as well:

wineserver: using server-side synchronization.
wine: RLIMIT_NICE is <= 20, unable to use setpriority safely
002c:err:wineboot:process_run_key Error running cmd L"C:\windows\system32\winemenubuilder.exe -r" (2).
wineserver: file_set_error() can’t map error: Function not implemented

And no info in Google about similar task.
I will give up for today… Anyways this Post is not related to Bottles, so…


Maybe after dowgrade the package u should mark the package with hold, otherwise u update ur package if u do

sudo pkcon update

an wine32 will not work anymore. So after downgrade to

libpoppler-glib8:{i386,amd64}=22.02.0-2ubuntu0.3 -y

you should do

sudo apt-mark hold libpoppler-glib8:{i386,amd64}=22.02.0-2ubuntu0.3

after that u can update and this package and wine32 will not be touched anymore.

As I said before, that does not work…

USE :clap: THE :clap: FLATPAK :clap:

That’s being said so many times now and everybody made that point. But Flatpak is not the real solution, which lacks of some tools from Wine (at least from what I saw).

Now I’ve replied to @Raffinade Because He/She is replying something I’ve already replied in this thread, not for you to say again “Use FLATPAK D’oh”…

FLATPAK :clap: IS :clap: THE :clap: REAL :clap: SOLUTION :clap:

Please stop spreading missinformation.

The question in the thread is “KDE Neon cannot be installed wine winehq-stable” and the answer is, yes it can, if you use flatpak.

There might be OTHER solutions, and you are free to adventure out and try to find one, probably create your own thread if you want advice in the matter.
But the solution for a normal user is to use flatpak.

Ok i am a he !
And if my advice above not work, you can try flatpak but in my opinion it doesnt worked. I used bottles as an isolated environment, i can make shortcuts to windows applications with bottles use different wine-cores and so on …
So give it a try. I tried flatpak wine, but i had different problems and flatpak wine is bad documented

So bottles solved my problem. You can it install with discover via flatpak



??!? :interrobang:
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t bottles more or less just a glorified GUI to managing wine prefixes?

If a flatpak does not work, you most likely have something very wrong with your system.

Yes, but also different wine builds (runners).
Bottles and Lutris, if installed as a flatpak, are not using a distro supplied version of Wine, so there won’t be any system package dependency issues.


Still I can’t make it with Bottles (what I use is Sketchup Pro 2021).

+1, I was getting an error about dependency on 22.02.0-2ubuntu0.3, not 22.02.0-2ubuntu0.4 (latest as of writing).

I solved it by manually downgrading to that version with:

sudo apt install libpoppler118=22.02.0-2ubuntu0.3
