    Play Lineage 2 on Ubuntu or Debian Linux

    1). Download .deb package Wine and install (no problems should arise).
    2). Run the terminal (without root rights) and write:
    wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks

    Next, download DirectX with the following command in the terminal:
    sh winetricks corefonts d3dx9

    Fonts:
    sh winetricks corefonts tahoma
    Download Tahoma font (copy/paste in .wine\drive_c\windows\Fonts) and install DirectX 9c or DirectX 11 via Winetricks.

    Install .NET Framework:
    sh winetricks corefonts dotnet20

    Install the downloaded DirectX:
    sh winetricks directx9
    And install the patch for VC ++

    3). Download and install the client, if already installed, then use the editor L2 File Edit ++ , edit L2.ini and set these options:
    UseHardwareTL = False
    UseHardwareVS = False

    And save in 413 encoding.


    Ignore that error with the AGP message. You can press on Close button or Enter.

    MOST IMPORTANT
    SELF STARTUP
    Now there are 2 values for extensions - the 1st is the desktop itself in Wine - Emulate the desktop (where the value is manually entered) and in the file in the game folder L2 / system / options.ini - open it with a notepad in Wine and thus can change the initial resolution of the run line. These 2 resolutions are changed with different variations - 800 * 600, 1024 * 768, 1280 * 1024.

    STEP 1:
    Install PlayOnLinux

    STEP 2:
    Install latest Wine version for use in PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac
    *Recommended WINE version - Latest stable release:Wine 2.0.2

    STEP 3:
    Install corefonts tahoma dotnet20 directx9

    (If you have problem with missing fonts in game copy/paste Tahoma from WIndows to Linux in virtual C drive > Fonts...)
