Tutorial: How to use Wine (for beginners)
manero666 commented on 4 April 2017 at 9:18 am UTC

Hi!

I want to share a Blog post and some videos I made on how to use Wine.
They should explain to a new user how Wine works and how to take the first steps and install and run some games/software.

Some videos are a bit old (November), so if you're using a Nvidia card you're probably able to try out many DX10/11 games nowadays (AMD + Mesa still need some implementation).
I still miss few things for the Blog post and I would like to enrich the series with a "how to compile it" guide and a Wine-PlayOnLinux comparison video.

So stay tuned

I hear a lot of talk about gallium and gaming nine. I assume it is a patched version of wine.
Since I use the closed nVidia drivers I just use vanilla wine.

Any nVidia users that wine-gallium-nine?

There is no way to use gallium nine with the proprietary Nvidia driver because Gallium Nine is part of Mesa (gallium framework), but you can use Wine Staging (and activate CSMT in winecfg) to get a nice fps boost in almost every game.
