HowTo / Notes


As of May 2018

Gwent Public Beta

Confirmed working on Wine 3.8

  • Open Wine configuration (winecfg)

              Change Windows version for windows 10

Currently broken:

  • Friend Match (GOG Galaxy Overlay)

  • Gamepad (XInputDotNet)


          at their website:

  • WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog winecfg (change windows version, choose windows 10)
  • env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine ~/Downloads/setup_galaxy_1.2.41.110.exe
  • env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine ~/Downloads/GalaxyRedist.exe
  • env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog winetricks (choose Select the default wineprefix then press ok, choose Install a Windows DLL or component then press ok then choose vcrun2017.

make a small script to run the program:

nano /usr/local/bin/gwent

cd /home/user/Games/gog/drive_c/users/Public/
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe &
cd /home/user/Games/gog/drive_c/Program*Files*x86*/GOG*Galaxy
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe &

Then use this script to get connected to Gog, download Gwent and click play to Play it.

That All, enjoy!

(in case you don't want to use the script)

To fix the timeout issue with gog, you must be sure that GalaxyCommunication is run before GalaxyClient.

cd /home/j2lapoin/Games/gog/drive_c/users/Public/
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe

cd /home/j2lapoin/Games/gog/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/GOG Galaxy
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe
