After some research, here is a tutorial about how to install Line on Ubuntu 12.04


PREVIOUS STEP 1: install p7zip-full from the Ubuntu Software Repository

PREVIOUS STEP 2: Install vcrun2008 with winetricks. This second step is quite tough, here are the instructions:

  • Getting Winetricks (Note: Winetricks is also available from Ubuntu repository):

    wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks

    chmod +x winetricks

  • Open Winetricks:


  • An Interface is prompted select the default profile

  • Select "Install a Windows DLL or component"; click OK

  • Select vcrun2008S; click OK

  • Follow the installation instructions.


STEP 1 : Open a Terminal and create a new temporal directory and move to it:

mkdir line_tmp
cd line_tmp

STEP 2 : Get the last Line software version from the official website:

wget http://dl.desktop.line.naver.jp/naver/LINE/win/LineInst.exe
7z x -y LineInst.exe

STEP 3: Procced with the installation as state on this website:

 inode1=$(ls -ilab | awk 'FNR == 4 {print $1}')
inode2=$(ls -ilab | awk 'FNR == 6 {print $1}')
find . -inum $inode1 -exec mv {} LINE ;
find . -inum $inode2 -exec mv {} resources ;
mv ./resources/res ./LINE
mv ./LINE ../
cd ..
rm -R line_tmp


  • Go to your home folder

  • there is a folder named Line and inside the Line.exe file

  • Open this file with wine.
