In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Wine on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, Wine (an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is open-source software. By using a wine you can install/run Windows applications/tools on Linux.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the WineHQ on a Fedora 35.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35 or Fedora 34.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A stable and fast internet connection.
