Default Wolfpack Linux / PlayOnLinux

** Update: Found working settings: Mint Cinnamon **

I've tested this today - only single-user but it runs via installing Steam in PlayOnLinux (so that you are running the 'Windows' Steam) and then installing as usual. Some things I did find (they sound more complicated than they were - really very simple to fix).

  • You might need to disable directwrite (dwrite in the PlayOnLinux libraries) for Steam if it shows no text.
  • alt-tabbing away from Wolfpack means that the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive (in Wolfpack) when you try to return to it (sometimes Wolfpack crashes too). I tried adjusting mouse-warp in PlayOnLinux and also disabling the other display (I have a multi-monitor setup) but to no avail: but see below.
  • You need to have Steam in a 64-bit wine bottle
  • Setting PlayOnLinux to run Steam in an Emulated Virtual Desktop (in the Wine Configuration Settings) did not solve the alt-tab mouse problem.
Final settings that work reasonably reliably:
  1. In Configure Wine for Steam:
    1. Graphics: Automatically capture the mouse
    2. Graphics: Allow the window manage to decorate
    3. Libraries: dwrite (disabled)
    4. Libraries: xinput
  2. In Wolfpack:
    1. Disable Full-screen


As an aside, I hope that the developers will release this game in SteamOS / Linux as well.


Now I need to test with the Discord stuff (Discord runs natively in Linux).

It doesn't show as installable in Steam - I think I need to update Mint to the latest version (underlying Ubuntu 18.04)

It shows as installable to me (Linux mint 19.1), so you're probably correct.
