### wine major problem 20.04

I did a clean install of xubuntu 20.04 and have spent all day  trying to install wine. I have used every tutorial I could find on wine for 20.04. It comes up every time with missing dependencies, broken errors, etc, though synaptic finds no broken files. The last try of installing wine removed chrome, skype, google earth and many others with no warning. Overall 20.04 is problem ridden and very slow. Not having wine available makes things very bad. I have given up onm wine for now. Also the disable touchpad while typing seems to be gone as an option. The install also made  a graphics problem that made the system unusable and that I finally fixed after much searching.That was due to a amd processor. I am pretty fed up. I can never upgrade all the library computers with all of these issues.Sorry to vent but this has been a wasted 2 days. I have tried purge wine and it comes up with poutput removing lots of my needed applications, see below now I have to reinstall a ton of my installed apps, this is a nightmare!

Sorry to hear that, cmcanulty!

I'm keeping my Xubuntu installs on 18.04 until I decide whether to move them to Debian, MX Linux (MX is working great in my other machines) or maybe other contender, but yours is just the last in a series of warnings against Ubuntu 20.04 (the Snap shenanigans being the other big one).

Anyway, lately, when I've had to install Wine I've done it through PlayOnLinux, with very good results.

Perhaps you can give a try, good luck!

### Re: wine major problem 20.04

I tried installing and uninstalling wine with every method I found in 20.04 tutorials and all created disasters including the most crazy of deleting numerous other applications I had installed previously that had no relation to wine. I went to 20.04 only because I got a new laptop and it seemed stupid to install an old version on it. Turns out 20.04 was a bad choice.
