Hello,

I'd like to question about the wine possibility in Linux version of Desura, is it planned ?

Thanx !

Why would you want that? Desura works on Linux.

I guess he talks about running Wine games from inside Linux Desura. That indeed is not a stupid question. You can try add a shortcut yourself to Desura to a script which looks something like this:

#!/bin/bash
export WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine-bottle
cd ${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/PathToGameBinary
wine GameBinary.exe

Not sure though if Desura managed to fix the console bug yet preventing it from correctly launching console applications.
