Hey people! After a time i'll finally gor sof2mp running on (k)ubuntu 12.04, with wine 1.4, that's what I did, a little from here, and a little from there. I will share that because as sof2 lover, I understand those who get frustated with it. Here it goes:
~First, install it, in one of the several ways (wine eject in konsole after 2on cd asked, and mounting the cd2 and hit ''accept'', or two, cancelating without deleting installed archives from cd 1, and then copy the ''base'' folder from the cd 2 into the sof2mp of your hard drive.
~Second, in konsole (in my case I use konsole, but you can use xterm, aterm, gnome-terminal, etc) paste the next, where on "mime", must be your username:
__GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700 wine '/home/mime/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix GOLD/SoF2MP.exe' +set r_fullscreen 0
I think first lines tells wine not to pass from that gl version, and the final part forces sof2mp to run in window for avoiding bad res displays, or even a non menu.
The easiest part that had broken my head (nearly):
If you type that in konsole and get the "sof2mp_default.cfg not found problem", look clearly in the sof console, the error maybe says "base not found in /home/usrname/base
Go tou your wine installation, get the base folder, and simply link it in your username folder! That will be the default folder for sofmp2 (rocmod, etc). It is a bit messy, but at that point of troubles with that, I don't care.
~And third, play and play, and get fun, BECAUSE SOF2MP IS NOW PLAYABLE IN (K)UBUNTU 12.04 WITH WINE 1.4
