Additional Comments

Installing patch 1.06 helps getting around the speed issue with cursor and scrolling. Even though it remains faster than vanilla speed, it is still perfectly playable. I had to set scrolling speed to the minimum in the options to make it playable.

HowTo / Notes

Installation and patches


The setup looks for a CD drive with the right name. If you have an image of the install disc, you will need to mount it with an appropriate tool like CDEmu (fuseiso will not work).


  1. Official 1.06 patch
  2. Non-official hi-res patch
  3. The hi-res patch will not change the game assets, it will only allow modern screen resolution. This patch also helps reducing the speed issues.
OpenRA is a cross-platform port of several games from the Command & Conquer era. It includes a playable port of Dune 2000 running on most Unix systems.

Scrolling too fast

Game scrolling too fast, using settings to slow it down is not enough. Cursor animation way too fast.
Garbled Audio

Everything works fine. Occasionally, however, the audio cuts out (easily fixed by reloading ALSA drivers) and the audio is sometimes garbled.

Something having to do with how fast my cpu is I think. I've encountered similar things in older games before.

Not sure what to do as of yet. Rebooting seems the only option to reset everything. Have to find that process that keeps hanging up the sound.

Figured it out. Restarting the pulseaudio service did it.

pulseaudio --kill && pulseaudio --start

Will kill/restart the service.

No more garbled audio! Yay!

This problem also happens under Windows, the fix is to turn vsync on. But it does not help with wine.
Unable to locate necessary files. Please run Setup.exe from the CD-ROM disc.

This is a short guide for anyone who is having issues installing Dune. This is specifically for users receiving the message

"Unable to locate necessary files. Please run Setup.exe from the CD-ROM disc."

Now any other issues I can't help with. I'm going to assume in this tutorial that you have a basic understanding with terminal.

I'm assuming you have an ISO for this guide.

Lets start:

$ sudo mkdir -p /mnt/disk
$ sudo mount -o loop,uid=1000 (path_to_DUNEISO.iso) /mnt/disk
$ cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
$ ln -s /mnt/disk d:
$ ln -s (Path_to_DUNE.ISO) d::
$ winecfg

Under the Tab "Drives" make sure D: matches the following information:
(Click Show Advanced"

Path: /mnt/disk
Type: CD-ROM
Device: (Is the path to the ISO)
Label: Should say something like DUNE2000.
Serial: Should have random characters.

As long as Label/Serial have something written you should be good. I don't know what to do for a CD-ROM, as my D630 has a secondary battery instead of a CD-ROM.

Tested on Wine 1.4rc5 Ubuntu 10.04

Once installation is over, you can remove the links and mounted images.

$ cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
$ rm d:
$ rm d::
$ sudo umount /mnt/disk
$ sudo rm -r /mnt/disk
$ winecfg

Under drives you should see that you beloved d: drive has been removed

You now have Dune 2000 installed and you can remove your ISO disk images.
