What works

x86 version (32-bit) in a wine 32-bit environment

The gui runs

Baking textures works from the command line via an xml file

What does not

The 3D viewer (can't find dx9c but it is probably because this fresh wine environment hasn't got the dll's)  I will test it later if I need it but all I want is the baking.


What was not tested

The custom settings

Formats other than .obj  and .tga but there doesn't seem to be a reason why other formats wouldn't

Additional Comments

I needed to make a custom wine environment which was based on win32/32-bit only, so that I could install the .Net framework 2.0 After this I installed dotnet 2.0sp2 via the latest version of winetricks, then ran the xNormal installer (if it complains for WinXP or higher and it's already set to WinXP, you need to set it to Win 7 in winecfg) Run it from the shortcut, success! It also runs from the exe directly (I use a gui script in Maya to access it via wine injecting an xml file, works perfectly after a minor tweak to the mel file).
