What works



Using playOnLinux is also reccomended as it makes managing wine installs easy


  1. Ms Core Fonts
  2. MFC42u/vcrun6
  3. vcruntime 2008
  4. Wine configuration needs to be set up to "Emulate Virtual Desktop" else Zbrush startup is drastically slower

What I have tested so far 

  1. Sculpting
  2. Decimation Master
  3. 3D print export, stl import
  4. Web activation ( though pasting into the activation key box only pastes weird stray characters, typing it in works).

Overall it seems very stable except that mouse clicks seem misdirected like when you try to click on  the lightbox buttton and it causes menu drawers to expand. Using a digitizer it works great though, and clicking on the "Hide" link in lightbox header to close it fixes the mouse interaction.

The Intuous support is better and less laggy under Linux ( Intuous drivers on window were always buggy for me ). It feels super sharp and responsive. 

What does not

Nothing seems explicitly broken so far, but I have not tested everything

Initial startup is slow, on the order of 1-2 minutes, but this seems to be a massive improvement over 20+ minutes on wine 1.8.x 

The DEMO will NOT work as the license popup screen needs comctl6 dll and a host of other dlls that don't seem to play nice with wine. So you can never get past the demo activation step. The popup dialog is blank with a single button, and clicking it exits Zbrush.
