Installing Safari Browser by using WINE


1. Install WINE with the command (for a 32-bit computer):

sudo apt install wine32


2. Install WINE with the command (for a 64-bit computer):

sudo apt install wine64


3. Add the WINE key.

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

sudo apt-key add winehq.key


4. Add the repository.
sudo apt-add-repository `deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ eoan main`


Note: The above command is for Ubuntu 19.10 (eoan). If you are using version other than Ubuntu 19.10, change the name accordingly (like “bionic”, “xenial”, etc.)

5. Update the system.

sudo apt update


6. Lastly, install the stable version of WINE.

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
