It seems everyone has their own winetricks recipe for getting RIFT to work. I'm no different. I started out by using winetricks to install the following... d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9_43 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 xact_jun2010 corefonts vcrun2005 vcrun2010 vcrun2013 I then downloaded the GLYPH installer (GlyphInstall-9999-1001.exe) from glyph.net. I started the installer via the terminal using my installed version of wine (wine with gallium nine). All installed well and I was left with the GLYPH login window. I logged in and let RIFT fully install. I'm having no rendering issues thus far. Game play is pretty much as it is on Windows. I've noticed no differences between the two, but I was busy playing and not looking for them. My system is running Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 with Oibaf's PPA for git MESA builds. I am also running the current mainline kernel (4.11-rc8) and using wine with gallium nine from commendsarnex's PPA. My hardware is an AMD Ryzen 1700+ with an AMD RX480 graphics card. I'm using all opensource graphics drivers.

Winetricks allows you to install:
sh winetricks vcrun2008 d3dx9
Mixy reported the following (taken from the comment below):
To make Glyph working:$ wget -O ~/winetricks winetricks.googlecode.com/svn-history/r1209/trunk/src/winetricks
$ sh ~/winetricks d3dx9_43 d3dcompiler_43 strictdrawordering=enabled
Latest Wine upgrade made atleast my Rift constantly crashing(30 min - 1 hour after playing), but there is a trick to reduce this crashing:
It seems to degrade performance a bit, but in some places it somehow actually increases it. I guess itâ€™s threading policy of Rift that causes it. The impact is barely noticeable by me, tell me if you have other opinions.
This setting also removes rendering artifacts, where all kind of funny white stripes and other ugly particles and planes are shown where they shouldnâ€™t be, to make it ~pixel perfect to what it should be.
