What works

  • Install
  • Logging in (auto logging and remembering options work)
  • Detects games already installed under Wine
  • Messaging
  • Main screen minimizes and resizes
  • File Transfers

What does not

The friends list. Even with fonts taken from a Windows 2000 partition, it still doesn't display the friends list correctly. One or two of the letters will show, but you still have to scroll over the names to see who is who.

Additional Comments

I have been able to minimize my Xfire windows without allowing the window manager to control XFire. It goes down into a small black box at the bottom left corner of the screen, and can be brought back up by double clicking the box.

HowTo / Notes


Xfire depends on a few dlls that seem to be needed in the system32 folder (if you are emulating 2000 or higher)

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

ln -s /usr/lib/wine/ msvcrt.dll

You also need to install 'fontforge' to read chat windows to at least version 20060408

(pre 0.9.12)

Run 'winecfg' and 'Add application' Xfire.exe. Now go to 'Libraries' tab -> 'New override for library:' -> 'd3d8' and add it to 'Existing overrides', useing 'Edit' change to 'disable' or 'native only' and Xfire wil run.
