It takes a bit to get Terraria working – and may not work on all systems.
NOTE: use at least WINE 1.3.19
I’ve changed the steps a little bit to shorten the process
Step 1: Install the latest wine and winetricks.
Step 2: Install Steam. EDIT: you must use the Windows Steam installer + Wine – the native Linux Steam client will not work. I haven’t tried using winetricks steam yet for this game – I installed Steam using the download Windows installer directly from Steam. This places Steam in the .wine prefix. Please comment if Terraria will run in a prefix other than .wine
Step 3: Start Steam: This will update Steam. After this, log in to Steam with your user / pass.
Step 4: Download Terraria and install + Run Terraria once downloaded. This will install XNA Redistributable as well.
Step 5: Exit Steam.
Step 6: Install Mono 2.10 and 2.8 via winetricks + also install xact and xinput (I skipped the xact and xinput – but I’m using Wine 1.3.20 and all appears to work fine without)
Step 7: Install .NET 4 from the Full Installer from here
IMPORTANT: Do this install three times. The first two times you will get error. On the third try with the installer you should see a Repair option. If you see the repair option just canceled the install.
Step 7a: If you get a message that .NET is already installed, use regedit and delete this Node:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4
Then return to Step 7 above.
Step 8: Copy all the .NET 4 Files from drive_c windows directory to the steam Terraria directory
cd .wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/terraria
cp ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v4.0.30319/* .
Step 9: Start steam and run Terraria
- I did not install xact and xinput… (forgot to at step 7) and the game appears to work fine – though I am using Wine 1.3.20 where this may not be needed. If you are having problems try installing them via winetricks.
- I did need to run wine dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe three times and hit cancel when repair option comes up
- an error pops up when launching, though you can click to disregard and the game plays fine.
- if you are having problems be sure to check graphics card compatibility http://www.xnawiki.com/index.php?title=Graphics_card_compatibility
