Wine Debian Version: 5.0-4
No workaround and no extra installation were needed to install and run the game (tested on a very fresh wine installation), but you will experience trouble.
1) A problem with the installer. It takes an anormally long time to install the game, goglog.ini seems to get overwritten constantly (I fear for my SSD). Data/afs/map directory will grow as a proof install goes on
2) Installer crashes before the end, when it tries to install some Windows stuff. Fortunately, the game installation seems to be completed before that happens. I had to savagely kill the process to close the installer.
I end up with:
$ du -chs data/*
3) Launcher crashes but can be worked around if you edit directly the file config/Grandia2_Settings.ini.
French keyboard mapping if you need:
keyboard_mapping0 = E
keyboard_mapping1 = ShiftKey
keyboard_mapping2 = F
keyboard_mapping3 = Left
keyboard_mapping4 = Right
keyboard_mapping5 = A
keyboard_mapping6 = Z
keyboard_mapping7 = S
keyboard_mapping8 = Q
keyboard_mapping9 = D
4) The game runs a little slow on my computer (not a beast but decent). Text dialogs tend to lag behind the voice, and character animations are slow. In short, it looks buggy and tends to be CPU intensive.
There is a save point very early in the game if you need to exit game without starting game intro over again.
