What works

Everything works, straight out of the box.

What does not

The fonts look blocky & hard to read, but it's really easy to fix in winetricks


open winetricks & in Change Settings, select fontsmooth=bgrfontsmooth=grey & fontsmooth=rgb then OK.

What was not tested

I haven't made any live trades yet, but I fully expect them to work exactly as expected as soon as I submit some.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I set up a dedicated 32 bit wineprefix using this command:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/wine-mt5 winecfg

Then I set the version to XP.

I then ran:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/wine-mt5 winetricks

& in Change Settings, selected fontsmooth=bgrfontsmooth=grey & fontsmooth=rgb then OK.

Because I have all of my MS fonts actually live on my linux system, I use this command to alias them into the wineprefix, which saves me lots of space & effort as I have many different dedicated wineprefixes (check your own paths though):

cd ${WINEPREFIX:-~/wine-mt5}/drive_c/windows/Fonts && for i in /usr/share/fonts/ms_fonts/*.{ttf,fon}; do ln -s "$i" ; done

For the record, the wingdings font is required to display most indicators correctly.

Then I installed MT5 with this command:

WINEPREFIX=~/wine-mt5 wine start /unix ~/software/metatrader/XM-MT5/xmuk5setup.exe

NOTE: this works with any version of MT4 or MT5 from any broker, as they're just rebadged versions of the same code.
