What does not

During the loading screen, the program freezes and an error pops up, saying "An unexpected error has occurred and Roblox needs to quit. We're sorry!". Clicking on "OK" exits the program.

Anything that happens after a game loads.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

On some distributions of Linux the program doesn't freeze and the error doesn't appear. Instead, the behaviour is the same as in the test results that Jonathan Alfonso submitted.

HowTo / Notes

Easily installing and running Roblox

Wrappers such as Grapejuice and Roblox Linux Wrapper make installing and running Roblox much easier.

Both projects have an installation guide on their pages.

Mouse issue

Just chiming in to say that the mouse locking on right-click issue is still present. I've checked on the various Grapejuice pages though and it looks like they're aware of the bug - hopefully it will be fixed soon! Makes playing very difficult if you use a keyboard and mouse

Edit: The problem seems to be fixed with a patch added to wine-tkg. If you join the GrapeJuice discord channel, there's a link to the patched .pkg file that you can use to either install the patched version of wine (on arch-based systems), or (preferably) extract it somewhere and point to it in grapejuice's config file (that way you don't have to replace your current version of wine)
Pointer issues

Hello, I am experiencing a problem when playing any game on Roblox. My pointer freezes where it's at when I right-click or press any key on the keyboard. I am new to WINE (but not to Linux, so I am ok there), do tell me what logs to post. I am using Grapejuice as recommended. Thanks.

It's a common issue. I'd suggest filing a bug report so that the issue can be resolved sooner.

OK. Will do.

Turns out you need to recompile WINE with a .patch file (it's really .mypatch) and use that version to run Roblox. Fixes the locking when pressing a key on the keyboard, but when you right-click the problem stay (for me at least). I need to switch to another window and come back to unfreeze it. I used wine-tkg to recompile WINE, the process went smoothly. Hope everything becomes fully functional soon.

Glad to hear you managed to fix the issue using that patch! I will most likely file a bug report since the issue is present on vanilla Wine.
