What works

Most basic feature like brush, rendering, etc ... 

Sculpting work well*, save and load too.

* see comment on ALT key below

What does not

  • ALT key work rather oddly but I suppose it because in my case, ALT key is used as shortcut to move windows without clicking on the title bar. I'm using Cinnamon as desktop environment. I didn't test with an other one.
  • It takes few minute to start, less than 2 min on my computer. It takes nearly 20s on Windows.
  • the LightBox menu does not hide automatically.
  • Also, still in the LightBox menu, some preview does not work (for example: the DemoProjects folder supplied with the software is empty for me, not on windows)
  • A crash happened after loading many files but this is not an usual case.


What was not tested

Advanced feature (array mesh, ...)

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

To make ZBrush 4R8 work on Wine, you need a very specific setup..

First, you need 64-bit (SysWow64) Wine. Pixologic stopped supporting a 32-bit version, of the ZBrush software, with this release. Ensure you're using a 64-bit Wineprefix ! I recommend you create a new Wineprefix for ZBrush.

You need to install:

winetricks corefonts mfc42 vcrun6 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2013 comctl3

and set your Wineprefix to Windows 10 compatibility:

winetricks win10

Now, run winecfg, on your Wineprefix.

On the Graphics tab, enable "Emulate a virtual desktop" and set your desktop size.

On the Libraries tab, you must have these overrides set :

  • atl120 (native, builtin)
  • comctl32 (builtin, native)
  • mfc42 (native)
  • mfc42u (native)
  • msvcp120 (native, builtin)
  • msvcr100 (native, builtin)
  • msvcr120 (native, builtin)
  • msvcr90 (native, builtin)
  • vcomp120 (native, builtin)
  • api-ms-win-downlevel-normaliz-l1-1-0 (native, builtin)
  • api-ms-win-downlevel-shlwapi-l1-1-0 (native, builtin)
  • api-ms-win-downlevel-user32-l1-1-0 (native, builtin)
  • gdiplus (native, builtin)
  • msvcrt (native, builtin)
  • normaliz (native, builtin)
  • ole32 (native, builtin)
  • rpcrt4 (native, builtin)
  • shlwapi (native, builtin)
  • vcomp90(native, builtin)

Apply these, and now, ZBrush should work ;-) .

I'm pretty sure this setup can be improved, by removing unnecessary things. But it took many attempts to get ZBrush working... So I'm just posting my setup as it is.
