I am currently trying to install (from the main repositories) wine so I can run some older games (2004-2008) as I am coming from Windows.
My system is running KDE Neon Bionic Preview.
First, I tried Wine64. And it installed perfectly.
But all the EXEs I tried gave me the error "Bad EXE Format" which means I need Wine32, which gave this error.
I tried manually installing libwine:i386, but that gave me another error.
Manually installing libglib2.0-0:i386 tries to uninstall all of KDE, Qt, X.Org, Mesa etc.
Here's another error:
(the top is cut off because it says every single package is broken)
So, any solutions?

Install just normal wine. It is by default 64-bit in your repositories because Ubuntu is 64-bit distribution. It is ok.
First delete your /home/user/.wine folder
Then you need to set wine prefix:
I do it like this and it works for me. It sets 32-bit wine environment. Run winecfg.exe and set specific windows version that you need.
For specific programs, games you need to do your google search or aks for help on wine support forum.
By the way, your problem has nothing to do with desktop environment, so the better place to post such questions is on your distribution section (KDE Neon) or even better on Ubuntu forums, because Neon is based on Ubuntu. Not that you can't post here what you want but if you consider what is more appropriate place to post your question you get greater chance to get help. On Ubuntu forums you have the whole Wine section.

Apache is right, you could view this post in the KDE Neon Section viewtopic.php?f=309&t=153454
Also Apache answer is the common Ubuntu Wine section answer. Hope could be useful for you.
