View Full Version : How to make this game work on Linux

07-09-2015, 07:14 PM
Here is how to do it on Ubuntu 64 bits 14.04. The same instructions should work also on Debian, and 32bits systems. The only issue is a bit "noisy" sound, and a framerate a tad slower than windows.
How to run on Ubuntu / Debian
[1] see
I use ~/.wines/MQEL for the dir name
The MQEL launcher I downloaded is MightyQuestSetup_248329.exe
sudo apt-get install playonlinux wine
... Tools > Manage Wine Versions: Wine Versions (x86) select 1.7.12
mkdir -p ~/.wines/MQEL
export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX=~/.wines/MQEL
export WINE=~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.7.12/bin/wine
cd ~/Downloads
$WINE MightyQuestSetup_248329.exe
Say yes to install Mono package.
Dont create start menu & desktop icon if you dont want it
winetricks win7
winetricks corefonts tahoma
winetricks dotnet35sp1
Note: the above may install 2.0 but not 3.5. No worry, it still works.
Launch with script:
export WINEARCH=win32
cd ~/.wines/MQEL/'.wine/drive_c/Program Files/The Mighty Quest For Epic Loot/Launcher' &&
~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.7.12/bin/wine PublicLauncher.exe "$@"
