      Having had the same problems after first trying to install the Wine (Version: 1:1.8.0-0ubuntu1) offered by the distribution I am (LinuxMint 17.3) using, I then did my level best to completely remove all vestiges of that installation.

      Then, recently, I happened upon an announcement that a new version of Wine had been released, Wine 1.8.5, and became hopeful that it might work well due to some of its listed improvements. I downloaded it and installed it whereby I each time agreed to let the installation programs download and install whatever they reported as being necessary to that Wine version’s proper functioning but not yet installed.

      Wish me luck. So far all seems to be functioning well (i.e. winecfg etc. Wine functions appear all to be performing normally). I have, however, yet to install any programs under Wine other than wordpad.exe and iexplorer.exe, both of which function quite normally, I am pleased to say. P.S. I recommend which I found to be also very helpful.

        I also found very helpful

        P.S. I am still trying to understand how to properly use symbolic links. winecfg already appears to function properly, nevertheless, when I run it in a terminal then the error message appears.

        p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/ Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
