  1. You state that you need proprietary drivers to run this, but it works fine on my machine with the FOSS ATI driver. It didn’t when I first opened it, but if I launched it with wine from the CLI, changed the resolution to my native screen resolution with fullscreen and changed the graphical settings to the highest level, then it works great!

  2. Why don’t you use right-click -> Properties -> Permissions? It is easier than using a terminal.

    And I don’t know what version of Wine you are using.

    I’ve tested Sonic Fan remix in Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits with Wine 1.3.5 and an ATI 4770 and it was not OK. Too slow and a lot of glitches.
    I haven’t tested it since.

  3. 10.04.1 LTS 32 / NVIDIA 9500 GT / WINE 1.2. We cool now?

    Tested /w/ AMDX2 280 2.8ghz.

    It runs OK in the video I captured IMHO.
