HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

The Process is simple but can take a while depending on your internet connection.

1. Install the latest version of wine from Wine HQ (if you run Ubuntu add the software repo to your sources list)

2. Install Wine-Doors.

3. Using Wine Doors install IE6, WMP9, VB runtime libraries 5 & 6, all fonts, Direct X (for screen saver mode), and Firefox 2 (for purchacing shows, IE6 won't run but you still need it for the base program itself.)

4. Download and install VirtuaGirlHD

Everything should run smoothly from there as long as you installed Wine 1.1.8 or higher.

****Notes****

* Purchacing "full Shows" works as of this posting using Firefox 2 under Wine.

* Screen saver mode may or may not work for everyone (no they wont work as the default system screen saver)

* Wine renders the girls a bit different in comarison to Windows (rendered above the Panel not on the panel....)

* Girls will only be rendered on one desktop.

* If you want the Program to start when your session starts like in Windows, go to System-Preferences-Sessions in the Gnome Desktop Environment and Under Startup Programs click add and insert this line in "Command": env WINEPREFIX="/home/"User"/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\vghd\vghd.exe" ***where I placed "User" is where your user name should go.

* If your an actual subscriber, Just be happy that it works and its one less thing nailing you down to Windows. The only difference is there is no Taskbar to sit on.... LOL
