HowTo / Notes

Installation Guide (using winetricks)
Note 1: As WineHQ AppDB standards for test results do not allow platinum rating for applications that require using winetricks to install native dlls; if you submit a test result, please rate it gold and write in the description that winetricks was used.

Note 2: It is always recommended to run the latest and greatest version of wine, that said these steps should work with the most recent stable release of wine, 1.6.

Step 1: Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 4.0

winetricks dotnet40
winetricks xna40

Step 2: Install Steam

winetricks --no-isolate steam

Step 3: Run Terraria

As part of the above installation of Steam it should install the latest updates for Steam and then ask you to log in. If it does not you will need to launch Steam and log in.  Once you log in, install Terraria and run it as you normally would. It should not prompt you to install XNA as it was installed in step 1 above.
Installation Guide (not using winetricks)

Step 1: Install Steam from the Website.

 msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi

For issues related to Steam visit it's wine page:

Step 2: Download and install Terraria. This will install XNA Redist as well.

Step 3: Exit Steam.

Step 4: Install .NET 4 from the Full Installer from:

wine reg delete "HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\NET Framework Setup\\NDP\\v4" /f
wine dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe
wine reg add "HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\NET Framework Setup\\NDP\\v4\\Full" /v Install /t REG_DWORD /d 0001 /f

Step 5: Start steam and run Terraria

Known issues and fixes

Connecting to multiplayer servers:

Open a terminal and run the following command(replace $SERVER with the address of the multiplayer server): 
ssh -L 7777:$SERVER:7777 localhost -N
It'll open a local port forward. Let it keep running. Then, on Terraria, connect to It will fool Terraria into connecting locally and work around the "Requesting tile data..." problem.

Stuttering sound issue:

If you ran into the stuttering sound issue, all you need to do is install some missing audio codecs using winetricks. Run the following command:

winetricks dirac directmusic dmsynth dsound ffdshow icodecs l3codecx

Unhandled exception; Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA Framework Reach profile:

If you run into this issue attempt running in a virtual desktop.  Run winecfg and in the graphics tab check Emulate a virtual desktop and then enter the size you desire.
