Im on the newest version of Ubuntu, using the Wine version that was in the repo's, and the game works great for me. With one exception.. if sound is on, after a few turns, the icon panel on the right hand side will vanish, and the game more or less hangs.

Any suggestions ?

Any help for Linux problems is going to have to come from other Linux users. No one in our development team uses that operating system

I had the same problem with Debian/E17 - in my case it appeared to be buggy proprietary video drivers. Removed them and now it's working properly.

I'm running winSPWW2 (which should be the same as running winSMBT) under Ubuntu 9.10 which I strongly suggest, as has wine 1.0,1 included in it's repos. The game works absolutely fine with it, as long as it is run in windowed mode. I have the full version, and if you try to run it by double clicking the exe the launcher will not allow you to use the enhanced features. You can solve this by using the terminal command to launch the exe: "wine directory/to/the/game/WW2GameOptions.exe".

As for the disappearing interface issue, when it happens play with the visible gui, click "Preferences" or "Unit view" until the interface appears again and save the game. Restart the application and it will be fine again.

I had some sound issues too. By using the ALSA driver you can have decent quality and not delayed sounds with minor stuttering.

Hope it helps.

This hasn't been updated in a while, but with Lucid Lynx and the most recent version of wine, Steel Panthers works perfectly both in full screen and windowed, and with sound on or off.

I can die happily now

Nah, no right story ends like that.
Now you can play Steel Panthers happily ever after!

Default Re: Win(e)SPMBT under Linux. (Ubuntu 7.10)

Anybody have trouble getting desktop mode (CD only) to work in Linux, only just tried installing is simple just right click on install icon & select wine default then install as you would normally. Everything seems to work fine apart from desktop mode when it displays as if interlaced so half height & buttons dont work. Not tried messing yet as want to use a bit to try stability & get the hang of Linux as just trying but if anyone knows the fix please say. Also works just fine running on Macs possibly better than a proper PC which is laughable.
Only played for a day but Linux is similar to Mac operating system but very light weight with stuff to allow it to do most of what windows can & quite a few things it cant, think like modular design Fairly steep learning curve if have to forget windoz but if you have an old computer like a 386 this will let you use it, Mines now acting as a firewall for my network

Hi. I tried to play in the ubuntu system 10.10, but locked or go very slow. I tried version 1 winspww2. There will be improvements if I install all the patches?
