    Cool Wine is playing checkers with my Starcraft2

    Hi,
    1st off I'm fairly new to both Linux and this Forum.

    I'm trying to get Starcarft 2 to work on Ubuntu 10.04 / Wine 1.2

    So I'll start off by showing where I started:


    I have "fglrx" installed as I've got an ATI Gfx card.
    The following commands has also been run to get Wine up to speed.


    wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
    chmod +x winetricks
    ./winetricks droid fontfix fontsmooth-rgb gdiplus gecko
    ./winetricks vcrun2008 vcrun2005 allfonts d3dx9 win7
    This is what I got now:


    I hope someone can help me out.
    Please.

    A newer Catalyst(fglrx) driver will probably fix the graphics corruption. I don't know which version to recommend for Ubuntu 10.04, hopefully the lastest will work.

    http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run

    #1. Uninstall fglrx
    #2. ./ati-driver-installer-11-12-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid
    #3. sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

    For me SC2 runs almost perfect. Ubuntu 11.10, Wine 1.3.36, Catalyst 11.8

    I see you're pointing out 10.04, does 11.04 work better?

    Re: Wine is playing checkers with my Starcraft2

    Thanks a lot man, the game is now actually working now

    if anyone have a similar problem, I used the following lines of code

    Install the prerequisite packages:
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0

    If you are using the x86_64 architecture (64 bit), be sure to install "ia32-libs" before proceeding!
    $ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

    Download the latest Catalyst package.
    This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
    $ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst11.12; cd catalyst11.12/
    $ wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run

    Create .deb packages.
    $ sudo sh ati-driver-installer-11-12-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid

    Install .debs.
    $ sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

    Back Up xorg.conf
    $ sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak

    Generic Config
    This will work for most people:
    $ sudo aticonfig --initial -f

    Test your installation
    Reboot or fglrxinfo gives an error message. From a terminal window (minimal install must first start x-terminal with 'xinit'), type
    $ fglrxinfo
    into the terminal. If the vendor string contains ATI, you have installed the driver successfully.
    Eg.

    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 4770
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 (3.3.11318 Compatibility Profile Context)
