From ArchWiki

Bottles is a Wine prefix manager written in Python using the GTK framework. It can be used to create and manage Wine prefixes as well as automatically handling the installation of various Wine runners, Windows dependencies and installation of some Windows applications. It can also be used to override Windows DLL files inside a prefix and manage environment variables for Wine sessions.

It can be used to run Native Windows applications and games with, in most cases, near native performance and in its officially supported mode also supports application sandboxing.


Note: The Bottles developers strongly recommend that users install Bottles through Flatpak as it is used for sandboxing.

Install Bottles from Flatpak using the following command

$ flatpak install bottles

Alternatively, Bottles is also available as bottlesAUR and bottles-gitAUR.


Bottles has a thorough guide covering its usage at Bottles User Documentation
