Winepak Could Make it Easier to Install Windows Apps on Linux

It might soon be easier to install your favourite Windows apps on Linux, thanks to a fledgling new project. It’s called Winepak and, as you might guess from the name, it’s focused on packaging Wine applications as Flatpak bundles for faster, fuss-free use.

So, rather than you having to head out and find, installer, open it with Wine, and jog through the various steps needed to install it correctly you’d simply install an application from Winepak.

Although it’s early days for the project a number of games appear to be available on the Winepak repo already, including Fortnite, Overwatch, and World of Warcraft.

Also available is Internet Explorer 8, a frustratingly difficult game in which you navigate the web in search of a rare, little-seen gem: a website that doesn’t appear broken.

Some games and apps rely on specific Wine extensions or ‘wine-tricks’ scripts being run. Winepak could automate their inclusion.
