What works

Connecting, playing games.

What does not


One must be careful of the menus - if a menu is open (say, to choose one of the automatically translated greetings for your opponent) when a popup is displayed (say, to choose the time settings for the match) input focus is lost and cannot be regained by any X application until going to a text console and killing Wine. Maybe this is an issue on Windows too, I don't know.

Additional Comments

While technically it has issues (lectures don't seem to work, be careful of the menus) if you just want to have good games of Go online, it works very well as long as you're careful.

HowTo / Notes

For best results, run in Korean Locale

Although Tygem will run just fine in a default en_US locale, you will get much more aesthetically pleasant results by running it in a Korean one. This isn't just because the various Korean/Japanese/Chinese usernames will actually show up properly, but also because a lot of the buttons and dialogs were sized expecting the somewhat-wider CJK fonts even for English text. Everything just looks a lot more polished in the Korean locale.

With that in mind, here are the steps to be taken:

  1. Install the cjkfonts package with:

    $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winetricks cjkfonts
  2. Make sure you have generated the Korean locales. In Arch Linux or Ubuntu, you can do this by editing /etc/locale.gen and making sure the following lines:

    ko_KR.UTF-8 UTF-8

    are present and un-commented. Then, run sudo locale-gen.
  3. When running Tygem, make sure LC_ALL="ko_KR" is set (though you probably want to do this in the .desktop file or script you use to launch Tygem with, rather than setting LC_ALL globally, since that would set your locale to Korean for all your programs).
