  • Winepak Is A Flatpak Repository For Windows (Wine) Games And Applications

    Winepak is a Flatpak repository for Microsoft Windows applications bundled with Wine. Its aim is to "make installing and running [Windows / Wine] applications Just Work", by including the runtimes required to run the software / game under Linux (Wine, etc.).

    As some of you might already know, Wine is a compatibility layer that allows running Microsoft Windows applications and games on Unix systems. Simply running Windows software / games using Wine doesn't always work on Linux - sometimes you need to install additional libraries, use a different Wine version than the one installed on your system, and so on.
