What works

Installation, license activation, project selection.

What does not

After a project opens, the main window visual (pull-down menus excepted) and "Welcome to Unity" windows both display as garbage pulled from the video backbuffer.

 This makes Unity unusable on my system. I have experienced this problem in trying to get Unity to work since early 3.x. A few other applications that use Windows UI pull-down menus with an OpenGL visual also do this, but as of yet I have been unable to target the problem with debug filtering (such as +d3d).


What was not tested

Project creation (a premade "stub" project was used); anything that requires the main UI window (read: 95% of the application).

Additional Comments

Tested using: - wine-1.7.14-126-g2bb1059 (git) - Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT/PCIe/SSE2 - nvidia-drivers 334.21 - kernel 3.12.13 The application was installed in a clean WINEPREFIX with WINEARCH="win32". 'winetricks d3dx9 corefonts dotnet20 forcemono' was then used and regedit used to copy the ProductID key in /HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows to a new ProductID key under /HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT .

HowTo / Notes

1) Create 32bit prefix:
$ export WINEPREFIX=~/unity3dprefix
$ WINEARCH=win32 unitySetup.exe

2) Unity uses the Tahoma font, so for visible text you need to do:
$ winetricks tahoma

3) (Only for Wine <= 1.7.34, bug #26272 ) For working new project creation 
$ winetricks ie8

4) (Only for Wine <= 1.7.33, bug #36964 ) For working license you need to copy the ProductId value from 
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProductId
using: $ wine regedit
Or do:
$ wine reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /v ProductId /t REG_SZ /d 12345-oem-0000001-54321

5) (Only for Wine <= 1.7.23, bug #22896) For working editor after click "Play" - you need run:
$ mkdir -p $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/$USER/AppData/LocalLow
If you want edit code from linux version of monodevelop(or Xamarin Studio) - create link "C:" to drive_c of your prefix in project directory, that adds correct highlighting and autocomplete:
cd projectDirectory
ln -s ~/unity3dprefix/drive_c C:
If you want open Linux Monodevelop from unity use my script writted in python: and save it as Monodevelop.exe
Select in unity as editor that script.
Import assets without opening Asset Store
Wine bug #34039 makes it hard to use the Asset Store through the Asset Store window.

Assets from the Asset Store can be imported without opening the Asset Store, by using the Asset overview screen search function. Input the name of the asset and click on the button for searching within the Asset Store. This way, it is possible to import free and purchased assets.
