To follow up with this thread: /forums/migrated-to-ubuntu-t152459.html
I have decided to make a guide on how to install Ragnarok Frontier (aka RF) on unix-like operating systems. I will try to make this as simple as possible.

Disclaimer: Installing and running RF on other operating systems than Windows is not supported by Xenophase nor me.

I hope you will enjoy this!

-------------------------------------------------------

1. Introduction

1.1 Unix-like OS and Wine

Both Mac OSX and Linux are based on Unix which is one of the oldest and still used operating systems. This is why we call them Unix-like OS. Unix-like operating systems pretty much work the same way and this is why I have decided to include both installation guides for Linux, which in this case will be the Ubuntu distribution, and MacOSX.

Most Personal Computers (PC) use Intel based processors which is now also the case for Apple computers. Applications are usually compiled depending on the processor you will be using. So if the processor is the one executing the application and all the computers have the same type of processors, it shouldn’t be much of a problem to make it work under different operating systems.

This is where the Wine application steps in. Wine creates a Windows environment for your application so it can find all the resources it needs to work properly. This guide is about installing Wine on your Unix-like OS then installing and running RF using Wine.

If you wish to learn more about Wine please visit these websites:
http://www.winehq.org/
http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ


1.2 Terminal / Console

The Terminal (or Console), is a text based command interface like DOS. Though it might seem complicated at first, this is probably the easiest way to make and follow a tutorial because most of the steps can simply be copy/pasted.

Here is some information about some Unix/Linux commands that will be used in this guide:


1.2.1 Change Directory

When you open up a Terminal window, the command prompt will be executing commands from your home folder. Some commands have to be executed in specific directories so you will need to browse with the cd (change directory) command:

Code:
cd /folder1/folder2


If one of the folder has a space in it, you need to add a backslash before that space in the path you’re typing:

Code:
cd /folder\ name


Finally, if you to go back to a parent directory, type:

Code:
cd ..


Note: When there is a dot in front of a folder or a file (example: /.folder1), it means that it’s a hidden folder or file.


1.2.2 sudo

In Unix/Linux, like most operating systems, it is required be a system administrator to install new applications. If you type sudo in front of a command, it will prompt for your password then it will execute the command as an administrator.

Note: When you type in your password, nothing will be shown for security reasons.

Note: You absolutely need a password on your administrator account for the sudo command to work.


-------------------------------------------------------

2. Ubuntu Linux

Because the Linux OS is open source, many groups can make their own custom versions. This is why there are many different distributions of Linux. One of them is called Ubuntu, which is the one i am using for this tutorial.

Why choose Ubuntu? It is well documented, it has a very good support and there is a lot of applications available for it. It is also possibly one of the most popular Linux distribution, so the community support is present.

To download and install Ubuntu, please visit this link:
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download


2.1 Installing Wine

Note: Unlike the MacOSX guide presented later on, this Ubuntu guide is considering that all the steps are done from an administrator account.

Most Linux distributions have an online repositories system for installing software. It’s kinda like a being linked to a server containing many applications and the OS can automatically download and install the software you ask him to.

Though Ubuntu has a really good application search and install utility (available at /Applications/Ubuntu Software Center), this guide will be using the Terminal with the apt application because it should work for many Linux distribution.

First, you need an active Internet connection. Then, we need to open a Terminal session: /Applications/Accessories/Terminal

You should always verify if the proper repositories have been added for the software you want to install. For Ubuntu, this part is not mandatory because all the important repositories are enabled by default, but I will still present this step in this guide as a reference. You can open the repository list with the nano text editor in the terminal:

Code:
nano /etc/apt/sources.list


If you need to modify the repository list, add the sudo command in front of the nano command.

Note: From now on the steps to install Wine on Ubuntu are mandatory

We now need to update the repository index by typing the following command in the terminal:

Code:
sudo apt-get update


Enter your administrator password. Once the update is done we can now install the wine application:

Code:
sudo apt-get install wine


This may take a little while. Eventually, there should be a prompt for some Microsoft EULA. You can scroll down using the arrows and move the cursor using the tab key.


2.2 Configuring Wine

Now we need Wine to setup the Windows environment and configure itself by typing the following in the terminal:

Code:
winecfg


This can take a few moments before the Wine configuration panel appears. Press on the Audio tab to make sure the audio gets configured.

If you’re planning to NOT play in full screen mode, press on the Graphics tab and check the “Emulate a virtual desktop” case. This, combined with the RF setup’s full screen mode, will ensure a better graphic experience. The desktop size doesn’t matter much, as long as it’s big enough to carry the Wine configuration panel and the RF Patch Client.


2.3 Installing Ragnarok Frontier

Get the Ragnarok Frontier Full Client Installer available here:
/rf/download.php

Still with a terminal window, use the cd command (see section 1.2.1) to get in the folder where the RF client package is saved. Run the following command with the right client file name to install RF while skipping the OS and Direct3D checks:

Code:
wine rf-20101018-client.exe /WINVER=false /DIRECT3D=false


Note: you can paste some clipboard text in the Linux Terminal by pressing shift + insert

The “rf-20101018-client.exe” package name may vary depending on the date when you downloaded the client file. Make sure you have the correct file name before you execute this command.

Go through the setup wizard and let the patch client update the game. Once it’s all done, press OK.

The RF setup page should pop-up. Even if you don’t want to play in full screen mode, make sure you check the “Full Screen Mode” case and select the resolution you want. If you have checked the “Emulate a virtual desktop” in the wine configuration panel earlier, you will play in a window. Once you’re done with the setup, press OK. The log-in screen should then appear and you can now play the game.


2.4 Launching Ragnarok Frontier

The shortcut installed on your desktop should work to launch RF. For reference purposes, unless you have installed RF in another folder, the following command with the right user name in a terminal window should also launch the RF client:

Code:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


In case you need to modify some RF settings, the following command should launch the RF setup screen:

Code:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/Setup.exe


Make sure you replace the USERNAME for your user name for those two (2) commands, which is the same as your home folder.


2.5 Dual-Clienting

Linux/Wine doesn’t seem support different instances of a same program in a native way. So we will make a copy of the RF installation and its wine environment by executing the following command:

Code:
cp -RP -v ~/.wine ~/.wine2


Note: Since we are copying the whole RF installation, this will take 1 to 2 GB of free space.

Now since we have two (2) different wine environments, we need to tell wine which environment it will be using: For launching a second instance of the RF client the command will become:

Code:
WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine2" wine ~/.wine2/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


Once again, make sure you change the USERNAME for your user name, in this previous command.


2.6 Making a shell script for a dual client shortcut

The first client application has a shortcut that works on the desktop. For the second client, we can make a script that will execute the commands presented earlier.

To do so, open a Terminal and open a new text file:

Code:
gedit


Note: gedit is a better text editor then nano but is only available with GNOME which is not the default GUI for all linux distributions.

Type the following in the text file:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine2" wine ~/.wine2/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


Once again, make sure you change the USERNAME for your user name, in this previous command.

Save the file on the desktop as RF2.sh

now go back to the terminal and use the cd command to go to the desktop:

Code:
cd ~/Desktop


now make the script executable by typing in the terminal:

Code:
chmod +x RF2.sh


You can now double click on the script icon to launch a second instance of RF.

2.7 Limitations

Taking screenshot don’t seem to work very well and it seems to freeze RF when you are running it under full screen mode.


-------------------------------------------------------

3. Mac OSX

Installing wine on Mac OSX is a little bit harder then on ubuntu because there are no maintained binaries. So you have to compile it by yourself.

You can get a better installation of wine with all the updated libraries using macports but it takes more time, it’s more complicated and it doesn’t change much for RF. So I have decided to stay with the simpler method.


3.1 What you need

- An Intel Apple computer with Mac OSX, preferably Snow Leopard (or later?), which is what i used.
- An access to an administrator account with a password
- The Mac OSX Install DVD
- An internet connection to get the files and play...
- an hour of time or more

Note: this guide might not work on earlier versions then MacOSX Leopard.


3.2 Getting ready

- Get the latest Wine Source Archive File available here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Source/
Version 1.3.13 was the latest at the moment so it’s the one I used. Decompress the archive by double clicking on its icon. Make sure this folder is accessible through the administrator account you will be using.

- Get the Ragnarok Frontier Full Client Installer available here:
/rf/download.php

- Install Xcode from the Mac OSX install DVD. This application is needed to get the make command which is used for compiling

- Install X11 from the Mac OSX install DVD. If you are running Snow Leopard, this should already be installed. This is the X Windows Environment which is the desktop environment Wine uses for its display and GUI.
OR
Apple’s default X11 application is outdated and unsupported. I STRONGLY suggest to download and install XQuartz instead, which is maintained closer to the X.org development. It actually made the font graphics better on my computer. You can download it from the project’s website: http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/wiki
Note: If you use XQuartz instead of the default X11, every time the /usr/X11 path appears in a command, it should be changed for the /opt/X11 path. I have included both commands in this guide for the first and the most important steps.
Note: When XQuartz is launched, it will still appear as X11 in the menu bar.


3.3 Compiling and installing wine

Log on with the administrator account to access the sudo command.
Note: The administrator account needs a password in order to execute the sudo command. If you don’t have one, it will not work.

Open a Terminal window: /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app

Navigate to the decompressed wine source folder using the cd command as explained in section 1.2.1 of this guide. Example:

Code:
cd Downloads/wine-1.3.13


Once you’re in the folder, configure the makefile to include the OpenGL support:

If you are using the default X11, enter the following command:
Code:
./configure CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/X11/include' LIBS='-lGL -lGLU' LDFLAGS='-L/usr/X11/lib'


OR
If you have downloaded and installed XQuartz instead, change the path /usr/X11 for /opt/X11 in the previous default X11 command. It should become the following command, which you can enter in the Terminal window:
Code:
./configure CPPFLAGS='-I/opt/X11/include' LIBS='-lGL -lGLU' LDFLAGS='-L/opt/X11/lib'


You can paste this command by pressing ctrl + v in the terminal window. This operation takes about a minute or two.

When the terminal prompt is back, the compiling settings will be ready. You can now compile and install wine by typing:

Code:
sudo make install


This operation takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Once it’s done, the wine application will be installed on your computer and it will be executable with all user accounts.


3.4 Configuring Wine

You can now go back to the user account you will be playing RF with.
Note: The programs you install with wine under a user account will only be available for executing with the same account.


3.4.1 Environment variables

Once again, open a Terminal window. Before we execute Wine, we need to set up environment variables.

If you are using the default X11, enter the following command:
Code:
export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib:/usr/X11/lib:/usr/lib"
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:${PATH}"


OR
If you have downloaded and installed XQuartz instead, change the path /usr/X11 for /opt/X11 in the previous default X11 command. It should become the following command, which you can enter in the Terminal window:
Code:
export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib:/opt/X11/lib:/usr/lib"
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:${PATH}"


VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: The preceding commands will be needed every time before executing a wine command in a new terminal window. This includes launching RF for installation and once it’s installed.

Note: From now on, i will not include the commands for XQuartz users for guide simplicity reasons.


3.4.2 Wine configuration panel

It is now possible to start the configuration of wine by typing the following:

Code:
winecfg


This can take a few moments. A prompt for installing Gecko might pop-up. unless you’re planning on installing other programs, it is only optional to install it as it’s for displaying web pages.
For more information, visit: http://wiki.winehq.org/Gecko

The Wine configuration panel should then appear. Press on the Audio tab to make sure the audio gets configured.

If you’re planning to NOT play in full screen mode, press on the Graphics tab and check the “Emulate a virtual desktop” case. This, combined with the RF setup’s full screen mode, will ensure a better graphic experience. The desktop size doesn’t matter much, as long as it’s big enough to carry the Wine configuration panel and the RF Patch Client.

Once wine is configured, press OK. If you need to go back to the Wine configuration panel, type the previous command again after having exported the environment variables.


3.5 Installing Ragnarok Frontier

Still with the same terminal window or after exporting the environment variables in a new terminal (see section 3.5.1), use the cd command (see section 1.2.1) to get in the folder where the RF client package is saved. Run the following command with the right client file name to install RF while skipping the OS and Direct3D checks:

Code:
wine rf-20101018-client.exe /WINVER=false /DIRECT3D=false


The “rf-20101018-client.exe” package name may vary depending on the date when you downloaded the client file. Make sure you have the correct file name before you execute this command.

Go through the setup wizard and let the patch client update the game. Once it’s all done, press OK.

The RF setup page should pop-up. Even if you don’t want to play in full screen mode, make sure you check the “Full Screen Mode” case and select the resolution you want. If you have checked the “Emulate a virtual desktop” in the wine configuration panel earlier, you will play in a window. Once you’re done with the setup, press OK. The log-in screen should then appear and you can now play the game.


3.6 Launching Ragnarok Frontier

3.6.1 The “standard” way

The installation of RF has created icons on the desktop, but these are not working. So, once again, open a Terminal window and export the same environment variables you did in section 3.4.1. Unless you have installed RF in another folder, the following command will launch the RF client:

Code:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


Note: you can save the export command introduced in section 3,4.1 followed by this RF launch command into a text file for easy copy-pasting into the terminal window. This will make it quite simpler for launching RF in the future.

In case you need to modify some RF settings, the following command should launch the RF setup screen:

Code:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/Setup.exe


Make sure you replace the USERNAME for your user name for those two (2) commands, which is the same as your home folder.

I have posted a screenshot of what RF looks like in MacOSX in this journal entry:
/~Malentin/entry/15035/


3.6.2 The “practical” way

You can also include the environment variables at the beginning of the command which can make it fit in one line.

If you are using the default X11, the following single command will launch the RF client:
Code:
DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib:/usr/X11/lib:/usr/lib" PATH="/usr/local/bin:${PATH}" wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Fred/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


OR
If you have downloaded and installed XQuartz instead, change the path /usr/X11 for /opt/X11 in the previous default X11 command.

Once again, make sure you change the USERNAME for your user name, in those commands.

This is very practical especially if this is the only reason why you would use the terminal. If this command was your last one, simply press the up and down arrows to toggle through the command history in the terminal window and press enter when you find it for relaunching.


3.7 Dual-Clienting

MacOSX/Wine doesn’t seem support different instances of a same program in a native way. So we will make a copy of the RF installation and its wine environment by executing the following command:

Code:
cp -RP -v ~/.wine ~/.wine2


Note: Since we are copying the whole RF installation, this will take 1 to 2 GB of free space.

Now since we have two (2) different wine environments, before we execute a program file, we need to tell Wine which one it will be using.

For the first environment, type:

Code:
export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine"


You can then launch the first RF client, as explained in section 3.6.


The second client

For launching a second instance of the RF client, open a new Terminal window, and change the wine prefix to the second environment by typing:

Code:
export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine2"


After having exported the usual environment variables (see section 3.4.1), you can then launch the second RF client file by changing the path to /.wine2 instead:

Code:
wine ~/.wine2/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Ragnarok\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe


Once again, make sure you change the USERNAME for your user name, in this previous command.

Note: You can also add these prefixes on the same line as the client launch command like it was done in section 3.6.2 for practical reasons.


3.8 Making a shell script for shortcut

If you want to make a shortcut to launch RF under wine, you can make a script that will execute the commands presented earlier.

To do so, open the AppleScript Editor: /Applications/Utilities/AppleScript Editor.app

If you are using the default X11, type in the following code:

Code:
do shell script "DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH='/usr/local/lib:/usr/X11/lib:/usr/lib' PATH='/usr/local/bin:${PATH}' WINEPREFIX='/Users/USERNAME/.wine' wine ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USERNAME/Local\\ Settings/Application\\ Data/Ragnarok\\ Frontier/RagnarokFrontier.exe > /dev/null 2>&1 &"


Once again, make sure you change the USERNAME for your user name to both place in this command. If you have downloaded and installed XQuartz instead, change the path /usr/X11 for /opt/X11 in the first variable of this command.

Press Play to check if the script works properly then save it as an application.

You can make another script for your second instance of the RF client by replacing the /.wine path for /.wine2 in both place of the command.


3.9 Setting up the RF game play

3.9.1 Turning off the Mac OSX shortcuts to prevent interference with RF

Open the Mac OSX System Preferences panel: /Applications/System Preferences.app

Open the Keyboard panel and go on the Keyboard tab and check the “Use all F1, F2, etc keys as standard function keys” case. You will now need to hold the fn key with the F1 to F12 keys for hardware controls.

Go on the Keyboard Shortcuts tab and change the shortcuts or uncheck the shortcuts cases that require F1 to F12 keys. They should be at the Dashbord and Exposé functions. Personally, I kept and moved the “Application windows” Exposé to F14 because it’s quite useful when dual-clienting.

You can now close the system preferences application.

If you are using the default X11, open it: /Applications/Utilities/X11.app
OR
If you are using XQuartz instead, open it: /Applications/Utilities/XQuartz.app

In the application menu bar, go to X11/Preferences... and select the Input tab.

If you are using the default X11, uncheck the “Enable key equivalent under X11” case.
Note: The command button will be your in game alt button.

OR
If you are using XQuartz and if you are plan on using the command button as an in game alt button, uncheck the “Enable key equivalent under X11” case. If you plan to use the option/alt button as an in game alt check the “Option keys send Alt_L and Alt_R” case.

Unless you are using X11 for RF or something else, you can now close the application.


3.9.2 The Insert key

There is no insert key on an Apple keyboard which is the key used for sitting in RF. If you have a PC keyboard, then you shouldn’t have any problems (though, i did not try this) but if you’re on a MacBook, this is not convenient.

To sit, you can type the /sit command in the RF chat box.

For convienient usage, you can program it as one of your emoticon shortcut.To do so, press Alt + M (the in game alt, see section 3.9.1), and type /sit in one of the shortcut lines. You can now sit and stand by pressing the right shortcut command.

According to the some posts I’ve read on the Internet, it would technically be possible to program the insert key in the terminal, but I don’t recommend it. I tried myself and it didn’t work. But here’s a link about it anyways:
http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20080122065954390


3.9.3 Screenshots

Just like the insert key, there is no Print Screen button on an Apple keyboard. Once again, if you have a PC keyboard, then you shouldn’t have any problems (though, i did not try this) but if you’re on a MacBook, this is not convenient.

If you’re not playing full screen, press command + shift + 4, then space bar, then click on the window you’re playing.

Note: The screenshot will be saved on your desktop, but wont have the Xenophase tag and time. So if you have a case to get solved with the staff, the validity of your screenshot jeopardise your plea.

If you’re playing full screen, pressing command + shift + 3 should take a screenshot of the whole screen, but it doesn’t seem to work. So I recommend not playing full screen.


3.9.4 View Angle

ctrl + mouse wheel doesn’t seem to work under MacOSX. So you can use shift + mouse right click, then move your mouse up and down to change the view angle.


3.10 Uninstalling

To uninstall all the wine configurations and applications, including RF, open a terminal window and type the following commands:

Code:
rm -rf $HOME/.wine
rm -rf $HOME/.wine2
rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine*
rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine*
rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.{xpm,png}
rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/*-x-wine-*.{xpm,png}


To uninstall wine from the computer, log on the Administrator account and open a terminal window. Use the cd command to browse to the same folder that contained the source file were we compiled the application in section 3.4 and type the following command:

Code:
sudo make uninstall

It's true, i wanted to mention that but I forgot.

Before using this guide, you should backup your important files.

You should always make a backup of all your important files on a regular basis. Even if you're not trying new stuff, something can always go wrong with your computer. Technology is not 100% reliable.

That said, using the sudo command is the most dangerous part of this guide because it gives you the power to modify systems files. But if you don't do anything else then what i explained, there shouldn't be any problem.

I explained how to remove everything on section 3.10 (except for XQuartz and Xcode). But in the worst case scenario, you can always reformat your whole computer with your Mac OSX Install DVD which is required anyways with this guide (I'm guessing you're talking about a MacBook).

You can also setup Time Machine on Mac OSX for reverting everything. Though I'm not familiar with it, im pretty sure you can set it up with another HD partition if you don't have a backup drive.

To uninstall XQuartz, visit this page:

firstly, wonderful guide. thank you very much for what you have assembled here.

i think my game installed successfully. i am stuck at the patch client--it doesn't patch, however, and returns the error:

Code:
Patchlist: patchlist signature mismatch, patchlist has not been signed properly!


i am running this on the latest version of wine on lubuntu quantal.

i've already attempted re-download and re-installation to no avail. using latest rf client download from torrent.

any ideas where to go from here? i'll keep tinkering on my own as well.

thank you,

r

There was an update several months back that started causing that issue with wine. Even with help of some very smart people, I couldn't figure it out. Good luck!

Sounds like a SSL issue on your end, I dunno. My Linux setup worked fine even after the patch...

I don't really have a computer set up for testing right now but you may want to try using winetricks to install missing windows/microsoft components and libraries that may be required for the new patching process.

Hope this can help in finding a solution...
