> Yes, I know that you have, and they are the exact sources that I have followed for years with no results. At the risk of sounding rude (I assure you that's not my intention), I don't expect anyone to be psychic. My question simply asked (twice, and very specifically) if anyone knew of a different source of info because the existing documentation is lacking at best.
Please point out any specific areas of the documentation you find unclearly written.
> Now, in the interest of getting **something** to work, I'll take you up on your offer. I'll post as much specific info tonight when I get home to my machine. The app that I have gotten the furthest with but still won't run is Thief 2: The Metal Age, rated Gold in the AppDB (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=1697). There used to be much more info for it but most has been taken down. It installs fine but will not run. I'm almost positive that my WINE version is 1.1.38 running in Kubuntu 8.10. I'll post the rest tonight rather than rely on memory.
As John said, install to a clean wineprefix as a normal user. Also post your graphics card/driver. This game apparently works well on nVidia but is unplayable on ATI. http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17900
