What works

With the right libraries and fonts installed (see HOWTO below), everything works perfectly. Tested many lessons and games against the computer.

What does not

The following problem occurs only when not using the necessary libraries and fonts:
- Graphics not clean and texts messy when used with Wine's built-in gdiplus library instead of native MS Windows GDI+ library.


What was not tested

- Installer not tested with Wine 1.8, but worked fine under Wine 1.6 and 1.7, so should be no problem.
- Some individual lessons not tested yet, but I will try to update this entry if I meet any trouble later.

The following problems occurred under Wine 1.6 and 1.7, only when not using the necessary libraries and fonts:
- Crashes when used with Wine's Mono instead of .NET.
- Crashes when native MS Windows GDI+ is installed, but MS core fonts are not.
I have not tested if these problems might still occur under Wine 1.8 when not using the necessary libraries and fonts.

HowTo / Notes



  • MS .NET (or Mono, see below): Used MS .NET 2.0 SP2 (winetricks: dotnet20sp2), though other versions might also work.
    Update 2017-02-07: User olekike reported problems with .NET 2.0 SP2 (frequent crashes during startup) and .NET versions 4.5 and 4.6 (unable to install). .NET versions 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 worked without problems.
    Update 2020-04-28: Felipe Windmoller reported that Mono 5.0.0 can be used instead of .NET. With Mono, the words of the menu may look truncated, but the menu bar is not essential to the game. With .NET 3.5 (dotnet35) in combination with the two recommends below everything worked perfectly.


  • MS Windows GDI+: Improves graphics (winetricks: gdiplus and/or gdiplus_winxp).
  • MS fonts: MS Arial, Courier and Times (winetricks: corefonts).

Note: If you use the MS Windows (native) GDI+ instead of Wine's own built-in library, the MS fonts become a requirement.
