    There isn't a direct way to install Visual Studio Enterprise on Ubuntu.

    You may try Wine- a compatibility layer that allows running some Windows applications on Linux. However, it's not officially supported, and success can vary.

    Installing Visual Studio with Wine might not be reliable and encountering issues is common.

    Hi @Riz, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    The Visual Studio Enterprise 2022 is only supported on Windows. 

    If you want to directly install it on Linux, it is not available currently. Maybe you can use a Windows VM on Linux and install the VS on the Windows VM. 

    If you want to install it on macOS, you can download the Visual Studio 2022 for MAC from the link and refer to the document to install it. But it is noted that the Visual Studio for Mac is scheduled for retirement on August 31, 2024. 

    Thanks for your understanding!
