What works

The game runs very good (including all videos) and is possible to complete. You should start the game via the launcher "Grim.exe" (not with the other .exe file), and also set your X-Server to 16-bit color depth!

What does not

Installation and patch donīt work with wine 0.9.11. Sound with ALSA.

Workarounds

What was not tested

maybe there is a wine version between 0.9.11 and 0.9.6 which can install, patch and also run the game.

Additional Comments

I used wine 0.9.27 for installing and 0.9.6 for the patch, only then the game runs well with 0.9.11!!!

HowTo / Notes

Note
See also Grim Fandango Launcher utility.
updating to 1.01

Note that the version 1.01 patch, Gfupd101.exe, must be run in the following way:

$ wine start /unix Gfupd101.exe

This is due to the patches reliance on windows explorer adding double quotes when passing command line string in ARGV. Wine's start.exe implements this quirk with the /unix switch.
