Additional Comments

The problems stated before about it not minimizing correctly can be fixed by giving your window manager control over xfire. This also fixes chat windows wanting to be on top.

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.
