Game launch we can play without problems.
I have tested with 9.9 unofficial patch (VTMB Unofficial Patch)
What does not
At first launch, I saw only the presentation logos of publishers, then a black screen with music.
I solved the problem activating a virtual desktop emulated with winecfg.
To escape the "black screen ", I have activated the virual desktop emulation (with winecfg).
What was not tested
I have played the 2 first chapters (St Monica and down town)
Don't have problems.

While the unofficial patch 9.4 works perfectly well on Linux, the launcher that is created by the setup is broken.
Find the "VTM Bloodlines Unofficial Patch.desktop" file on your desktop, open it up with a text file and change the line:
You can also apply the latter one in the Steam startup options to track your playing time with the unofficial patch.
To force antialiasing in the game, run this in a terminal:
wine /path/to/your/Vampire.exe -game Unofficial_Patch
