Oblivion on mint

Postby spayk on Fri Jan 08, 2010 1:10 am

I'm trying to install The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion through wine in Linux Mint. I installed it in Ubuntu before with no problems but in mint it won't open the setup.exe file, I select it but nothing happens. Help?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

What version of Wine are you using? Run winecfg go to the About tab and it should be near the top.

Oh hey, I'm playing that game, too.

You will need:

WINE v.1.1.33
PlayOnLinux

That's all it took for me to get it running. WINE v.1.1.34 couldn't get it running, nor could 1.1.32.

EDIT: To elaborate - if you don't already have WINE 1.1.33, uninstall the version you have, and then download 1.1.33, both the wine .deb and the -dev .deb, from here. Install both. Remove WINE from mintUpdate. Then download and install PlayOnLinux, insert the Oblivion CD, and use PlayOnLinux to install Oblivion.
