Current version of Firestorm viewer from 2021.
There's a native Linux version of Firestorm, but for some creator functions, such as uploading new mesh objects, the Windows version is required. So the ability to run it under Wine is needed for Linux-only users.
With the workaround below, everything seems to work normally.
What does not
Firestorm has a built-in copy of the Chromium browser, and it needs some fonts that base Wine does not provide. The 3D viewer will run but some 2D functions produce error messages.
This is due to a known Wine bug - Bug 32342 related to fonts needed by the Chromium Embedded Framework.
All teleports seem to crash the viewer. Walking or riding into another region works.
Add needed fonts with
winetricks -q corefonts
What was not tested
Only tried two regions, due to the teleport problem.
