    HOWTO: Super Meat Boy + Game Controller

    Super Meat Boy 1.0.u3 + Game Controller

    Install wine

    sudo apt-get install wine
    [For best results use version 1.3.7.]

    Install steam

    wine msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi

    Install Super Meat Boy
    Use steam to download & install Super Meat Boy which includes the directx files.

    Apply the fixes
    wine regedit
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Wine > AppDefaults > SuperMeatBoy.exe > Direct3D

    DirectDrawRenderer = opengl
    VideoMemorySize = 896
    [VideoMemorySize = Your video card ram]

    Login and Run Super Meat Boy
    wine 'C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe'
    [You may need to run wine within an emulated desktop]
    wine explorer /desktop=Steam,1920x1080 Steam.exe

    Game Controllers [Gamepads]
    Most game controllers will be auto detected within Linux and the game should auto-detect it as well.

    Game Controllers reported to work within Windows' box:
    Logitech Chillstream [Confirmed]
    Xbox 360 Controller
    Logitech F710
    Streetfighter gamepad
    Logitech F310
    Logitech Wireless Rumblepad 2

    You may want to increase the idle time, because the game controller won't active the game or your desktop.
    System > Preferences > Screensaver
    "Regard the Computer as idle after"

    Youtube Trailer:

    Super Meat Boy 1.0.u3
    Wine Version 1.3.7
    Ubuntu 10.10 x64
    Nvidia Drivers 260.19.06
