There seem to be some graphical issues with Khajiit and Orc eyes, as well as tree/character shadows, but unsure if those are wine issues or not.

HowTo / Notes

How to prevent crash when entering the main menu on Ubuntu

This was necessary for me to run Oblivion on Ubuntu 18.04. You may not have to do this in your distro. Solus for example did not require this,


The game has an issue with winegstreamer, and will crash if it is
enabled. 

  1. Open up terminal and run $ winecfg (note, do not put the $ in terminal, as it's already there)
  2. Click 'Add application' and find the Oblivion.exe from the steam\steamapps\common\oblivion folder
  3. Then navigate to 'Libraries'
  4. In the dropdown menu, begin typing "winegstream.." and winegstreamer should appear
  5. Click 'Add'
  6. Then click 'Edit' from the right hand side and click 'disable'
  7. Then click Apply and exit
Install DirectX if your distro doesn't enable it by default when installing from their Repo

When playing this game on Ubuntu, I had to install DirectX manually. This may not be necessary depending on your distro, but I needed it for Ubuntu 18.04 when installing 3.0 stable from the software center.

  1. If you haven't done so already, install winetricks from the Ubuntu software center
  2. Select the default wineprefix
  3. Install a Windows component or DLL
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and install XACT
