What works

Everything, including Steam integration.

What does not

The performance was significantly lower than Windows and lower than the native Linux version of KSP.


What was not tested

Mods were not tested.

Any tweaks or modifications to Wine, I only tested vanilla Wine 4.9 with no tweaks.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

As far as I can tell, performance being bad is really the only problem.

You should probably just use the native Linux or Mac versions of the game.

There are 2 times it crashes mainly, when going to/leaving the launchpad/runway, and when you try and look around the cockpit(I didn't realize that until after I submitted the test report).

I found a workaround for the cockpit in a thread here, as it was having the same error :

Basically you need to download the 32 bit versions of libx11-6 and libxi6, open them with archive manager and move the, and files to /usr/lib32.

I am working on the crashes with the hangars/;aunchpad.

Sadly I was mistaken, it worked for a few minutes, not It keeps crashing like before. I cannot look around in the cockpit and switching to/from the runway from the hangar crashes. IDK, i have had half my memory go bad about a week ago, I have new memory in the mail as we speak so I will fiddle with it then.

Ok, the cockpit fix I posted DOES work, something I had done after that caused it to no longer work, but I re did it and it works again, now to fix the main crash,

The crashes I was having switching to/from the hangars/runway/launchpad were due to me not having enough memory, as I only had 1 gig. Minimum you should have is 2, recommended is 3-4, especially if you are going to install mods.
