HowTo / Notes

ok here goes the "how to".


Before doing anything make sure you have a 3D driver installed and opengl is working. You can test this by starting a terminal and typing the command:

test@debian:~/Desktop$ glxgears

if that errors out, install your 3D drivers or fix the error.

Cleaning up some old mess

If you have nothing installed in wine go ahaid and delete the wine configuration.
As normal user do:

open a terminal
rm .wine -rf


download the off line windows java installer: installer page

Download the Self-extracting Windows installer from dark-wind.

You will also need a windows patch for wine: windows patch

Installing it all.
In Debian downloads from Firefox are automatically saved on the desktop so on in the terminal cd into the Desktop and install Java.

test@debian:~$ cd Desktop/
test@debian:~/Desktop$ wine jre-6u15-windows-i586-s.exe
accept the standards of the java installer and close it when finished.

Next we install the windows patch.
test@debian:~/Desktop$ wine vcredist_x86.exe
accept the yucky license.
The installer will close automatically.

The last thing we do is install dark-wind.
test@debian:~/Desktop$ wine SetupDarkwind.exe

Accept the defaults and the yucky license.

That's it. DW should be running now.

If the shortcut on the desktop doesn't work you can start dark-wind command line. This will give you some more output on the command line for debugging.
bassie@debian:~$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Darkwind/darkwindLobby.exe
