           Summary: Unable to run XCOM in Wine
           Product: Wine
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-files

        ReportedBy: magsymp at yahoo.com


I am running the most recent version of Wine on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn with all the
most recent updates. (I've even tried fresh install of Wine and Ubuntu)

My problem is that I am unable to get X Com UFO Defence to work with Wine.  The
game will launch but the keyboard does NOT work. I've have extensive
troubleshooting but I can't get the keyboard to work.  I have even had someone
else try to get it working (someone with alot of experience with Wine) and they
said that they were not able to get the keyboard working either (different PC
and all).

I have tried setting up a launcher script and had no success... same issue.
I've tried virtual KBs and those don't work either.  I've even tried a KB which
should push input to all sessions but even that does NOT work.

I have tried to run the game in terminal, in seperate window, but the KB will
NOT work... or the game won't launch.

I've tried 3 different install packages for the game and still no success.

Other games work, and the keyboard works in them with no problems.

Game is now abondonware and is available at 




Any investigation or input would be appreciated.
