The Dude 3.1 not working in wine

When running The Dude 3.1 in wine 1.1.15 the main window freezes.

The relevant log entries are as follows:

 WARNING: Trying to create a socket of type SOCK_RAW, this will fail unless you have special permissions.

Workaround for linux

It seems that The Dude wants to setup a local server instance by default when the client starts up, which doesn't work on linux.

To instruct the dude client not to automatically setup a local server instance we need to first create a the configuration settings to use:

On Windows:


1) Install a fresh copy of The Dude on a windows computer 2) Run The Dude

3) Click the Local Server button on top and UNCHECK the Enable on Localhost checkbox

4) Exit The Dude.

5) Copy the file C:\Program Files\Dude\data\dude.viw to a location accessible from your linux computer (network share, ftp, etc.)

On Linux:


1) Install The Dude under wine

Important: Uncheck Run The Dude on the Completing the The Dude Setup Wizard screen.

2) Copy the dude.viw file to /home/<user>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Dude/data directory.

3) Run The Dude with linux!


If you want The Dude to be a server under linux run:

wine "C:\\Program Files\\Dude\\dude.exe" --server

then run The Dude and connect as either Remote or Secure to 127.0.0.1
