Additional Comments

The bug from the previous version of Wine (6.3) that causes the program to go into "Zombie" state is gone, I guess the guys over at Crossovers discovered this and were like "Whoops!" and squashed that bug in the latest version.

HowTo / Notes

Distorted fonts

If the fonts in game look distorted, make sure you install the "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" package, as this provides the windows fonts used by IMVU. You can install it easily on Debian/Ubuntu based distros by using the following command in the terminal ("Ctrl+Alt+T" is a keyboard shortcut to open it):

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

You should be prompted to enter your password for sudo as usual.

Works on wine-5.0-rc2 (Staging)
by Thorvald on Monday December 30th 2019, 17:43
This now works on the staging branch at the time of writing. More specifically wine-5.0-rc2.

The only bug I've encountered on the staging branch is rooms with special characters (? ? ? etc etc) sometimes glitch out in the top bar. If it happens: you're still in all the rooms and tabs you were in previously, you just can't see them. If you click on the IMVU logo you get back to the main view, and you're able to see all your tabs again (except the room that caused the glitched name). Even though you can't see the glitched room in your tab bar, you're still in it, and the only way to get back into it is to click "join" again which causes your tab bar to glitch out again.
It crashes a lot

The program will crash whenever closing tabs or when trying to pull out the settings. It also does not keep you logged in.
