Civilization IV on Linux, Updated How-to

Filed under
HowTos

This is the second edition of my Civilization IV (Civ 4) on Linux how-to. With this guide you can run Civ 4 almost flawlessly on Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution using Wine.

At the time when Civ 4 was released, DirectX 9 was not well enough supported in Wine to run it. In the first how-to I got Civ 4 running just after DX9 support was added to Wine. Since then Wine has continued to improve and I got a computer with a better Nvidia graphics card.

In this how-to I am using an Nvidia Geforce 8600GT graphics card, Wine version 0.9.44, and Ubuntu 7.10.
