I noticed that the Linux install instructions on the LiquidSky Website are not working anymore for a while now...
So i want to share how i got the Linux client working on a Ubuntu Linux Machine.
This should work also with Ubuntu spin offs that are based on the Gnome Desktop (GTK) (not tested with KDE/QT)
(1) Make sure you got wine installed on you machine, i got the Wine version from the official Wine staging PPA, because i wanted all the new features and performance optimizations what the new Wine has to offer.
The terminal commands to install wine:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends wine-staging
sudo apt-get install winehq-staging
(2) Give Wine the extra kick under the butt, that (might) help to squeeze extra graphical performance out of it.
In terminal type
winecfg and execute it.
Go to the
Staging tab and enable
Enable_CSMT for better graphic performance and click the
Apply button, and close the window.
(3) Download the Windows Client and save it somewhere you have write access to (example: your home directory)
