What works

Was able to use the Roblox Studio for all of its capabilities and features

What does not

Wine does not automatically associate the protocols Roblox uses to launch the studio and games, see workarounds for fix.

Workarounds

In order for the studio to allow a log-in without an error for the captcha, you must associate the .desktop file with handling Roblox links. The Roblox Linux Wrapper automatically does this; otherwise, you will have to associate the .desktop file created by Wine to handle "x-scheme-handler/roblox-player" and "x-scheme-handler/roblox_studio". This will allow the Studio to work without any additional workarounds.



What was not tested

Did not test LUA scripting as I do not know LUA

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Only marking gold instead of platinum due to Wine not automatically associating protocols handled by installed applications

HowTo / Notes

Information regarding OpenGL vs DirectX mode

In older versions of Wine, Roblox Player & Studio work far better with OpenGL graphics enabled.

To enable OpenGL mode, open the Roblox Studio, click "File", then "Settings", followed by "Rendering". A prompt will come up saying "Changing settings may make ROBLOX unstable". Click OK. Under the Rendering submenu, change the option "graphicsMode" from "Direct3D" to "OpenGL". Restart Roblox Studio.

The game should now perform much better.

We recommend using Wine 5.0 or higher.


Note about installing Roblox on Linux easily

Running Roblox on Linux is easiest when using a helper script, such as Grapejuice or Roblox Linux Wrapper. You can obtain Grapejuice by clicking this link and Roblox Linux Wrapper by clicking this link. Each project has instructions to follow on how to install Roblox on Linux.
