Re: Installing DirectX 9.0c on Linux

installing DirectX 9.0c into Wine, the diagnostics program (dxdiag.exe) passes each of the test that is included in the standard DirectX install.. after the install only five dlls need to be set as builtin Wine dlls and the rest can be run as native Windows dlls.

Re: Installing DirectX 9.0c on Linux

DirectX is for MS Windows only. OpenGL is the closest Linux equivalent. Why did you want to install DirectX?

Re: Installing DirectX 9.0c on Linux

  • Install a native mscoree.dll and streamci.dll into /system32 from a windows install and set then to native Windows.
  • Go to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and rename d3d8, d3d9, ddraw, dsound, dsound.vxd, quartz dlls to *.bak
  • You will need to set number of dlls to native for the install to work properly. Here is the full list of dlls that need to be set.

    "d3d8"="native"
    "d3d9"="native"
    "d3dim"="native"
    "d3drm"="native"
    "d3dx8"="native"
    "d3dxof"="native"
    "dciman32"="native"
    "ddrawex"="native"
    "devenum"="native"
    "dinput"="native"
    "dinput8"="native"
    "dmband"="native"
    "dmcompos"="native"
    "dmime"="native"
    "dmloader"="native"
    "dmscript"="native"
    "dmstyle"="native"
    "dmsynth"="native"
    "dmusic"="native"
    "dplay"="native"
    "dplayx"="native"
    "dpnaddr"="native"
    "dpnet"="native"
    "dpnhpast"="native"
    "dswave"="native"
    "dxdiagn"="native"
    "mscoree"="native"
    "quartz"="native"
    "streamci"="native"
  • Now, download the directx Installer and run it.
  • Go through the installation.
  • wine DXSETUP.EXE

Re: Installing DirectX 9.0c on Linux

Hi Čalis,

I think that if you try to install any games in wine then DX9 is already enabled. That DLL file is just a DX support library, which you can either copy from an existing Windows installation or download from the internet and place in the .wine/drive_c/windows/system32 folder. Hope that gives you some information.
