It does not work for me!
I tested Mint 18 (unofficial LXDE and the official XFCE) with WINE out of the box and the 1.9.24 version.
Each tested with a fresh installation. No other effect.
IGOR slows down GPL and no chance to join.

So, i think this project gets no happy end. :hithead:
Better to serve GTP, this works smooth. :up:
But there are very less players . . . . . .

I got it working in Manjaro 17.0 / Wine 2.4 / 32bit prefix (I3 / hd7850 / AMD propriatary drivers / openglv2)
Good graphics, fps and stability.
I can run one hour long offline and online races without any trouble.

The only bug I get so far is that the screen can flicker and the mouse pointer disapears when going back to menu from in game with openglv2. With d3dv2 the buttons dont work in menu.
I found a workaround : I have "yakuake" installed on my KDE desktop. It's a terminal emulator that opens through F12 key shortcut. If I open/close it, I get back to a full usable menu

Gem+ installed and working with 60fpsv2, ffb2, 77dv4 no letterbox, carsound patches

Some trouble with Vroc :
- I get a error when trying to add a chatroom : "External exception 80000101"
- I can join servers but in game my G27 doesnt work anymore...
Although everything is ok when I join online races from game menu.

I dont use Igor.

Regarding rotation angle, the shifter button trick works:

Maybe Marcos or Zalo can test if this works in linux
[1+2] + O = ~670°
[1+2] + S = ~450°
[1+2] + X = 900° Resets to default
[1+2] + T = ~240°

The biggest issue for me is that altough my G27 wheel is working with good FFB out of the box, I cant get any H-shifter control through Gplshift.
I can make it work with Fairshift but I just cant get used to it,
On windows i use gplshift h-shifter with clutch on for realism, although I sometine miss gears I still get correct laptimes.
Unfortunatly no way for me to achieve this with Fairshift, getting way to much neutrals when changing gears...

Marco and all others I join your crusade ;)

Hello Alexnelson

I'm exactly at the same point than you. You're extremely welcome to our crusade, hehe.

I'm also racing online with clutch and H shifter (from begginings of this year) and am very happy with it. But unfortunately I can't do that on linux. So I'm still racing on Windows.
I tested fairshift and it works very good on linux, but I feel fairshift very unfair when I try to race against guys using either paddles or shifter but braking with the left foot and automatic clutch.

I'm not that fast and my objective is not exactly to win races or championships, but using fairshift I just wouldn't approximate to the pack, which isn't so funny...

Well. I'm happy with the new incorporation to our crusade :)

I have this graphical GEM+ difference between Linux and win7.
Looks like linux is using less colors or something, notice in pictures and colored buttons (see pics)
Do you guys have it too?
