CSS/Wine/System Settings and Info: CSS Settings = Model: High, Texture: High, Shader detail: High, Water: Reflect world, Shadow: High, Color Correction: Enabled, Antialiasing: None, Filtering: Trilinear, Vert. sync: Disabled, HDR: Full. HW/SW DirectX level: DirectX v9.0 + clean .wine prefix, *No registry tweaks*. HL2.exe overridden to run as Win98. OS: Kubuntu 9.10 alpha (Karmic) 2.6.31-10-generic SMP File System: Ext4 Drivers: 185.18.36 Video Card: ASUS EN9800GTX+ (nVidia chipset) Audio: HDA nVidia (snd_hda_intel) CPU: Intel Core 2 Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz (No overclocking) FSB: 1066 Due to the inability for myself and others (bug 5159) to use the mic and for the lack of any workaround regarding the MotD (which will get you banned if you camp the wrong spot on the wrong server), this game cannot be considered anything but silver-level at this point. The game runs faster (almost 20fps) if you use the 190 beta drivers. However, bugs in the latest 190-dev packages will break the ability to compile Wine with OpenGL support - therefore I've temporarily gone back to 185.

All things going well, this game will work in current versions of wine (wine-1.0.1 and up) if you:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam && WINEDEBUG=-all wine steam -applaunch 240
Note: Your path might differ, depending on language and installation directory. This is default for English install.
Note2: Additional command line options go after-applaunch * not before. Ex: -applaunch 240 -dxlevel 80 -console
For better graphics quality you might want to use -dxlevel 90 command option and enable GLSL shaders via registry (save this to a "file.reg" then import with 'wine regedit file.reg'):
Note: GLSL is enabled by default as of wine-0.9.49
For better performance use -dxlevel 80 or even 70 and the following game settings:
cl_drawmonitors 0 r_WaterDrawRefraction 0 r_WaterDrawReflection 0Also you can disable GLSL.
(i) In the past Steam updates have been followed by serious errors running CS:S (or even just steam), including serious lockups. When running after an update, be sure that you're ready to switch to another tty at the first sign of trouble - preferably having a "wineserver -k" sitting ready in it just in case. Just a thought.
(ii) Sound latency issues (skipping, popping as everything struggles to keep up) - most notably sudden lag during firefights can sometimes be cleared up by running "soundlist" in the CS:S console. This is a more general CS:S issue, nothing to do with wine.
If you have other good resource (at least as good as ones above) send vitamin a message with the link.
