Mass Effect 3 Linux

Installed and Playable Fine...

Wine from GIT - the packages provided from WINE HQ page not working for mi. ( game can't lock mouse fixes not help )

OpenAL 32 bit on 64 bit system to compile Wine with:

Get any i686 pkg from 13.37 or current Slack Repo

convertpkg-compat32 -i openal-1.13-i686-1cf.txz

upgradepkg --install-new /tmp/New-PKG-Name.txz

For mi it was: openal-compat32-1.13-x86_64-1cf.txz


I have strange problem with sound, after many hours - winetricking and ...

I see the problem - when install Team View 7 - some how it's become a Service, and every time when start wine TeamView starts.

so i run

wine uninstall - from TeamView 7 directory

restore sound settings that i was scrambled.


winetricks multisampling=enabled
winetricks dsoundhw=Full
winetricks sound=alsa

and if this not help

winetricks alldlls=default

Sound must be perfect w/o any glitches,

picture was some defects on edges.

Before every start,check for other wine servers and kill them:

wineserver -k

Vim hang on start or Visual Select

strace -p VIM-PID

Process XXXXX attached - interrupt to quit
connect(4, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/dev/gpmctl"}, 13

ps ax | grep gpm

kill gpm
killall vim - or similar


for GPM can use more standard way:

The name here may be different:
/etc/rc.d/rc.gpm stop


stop GPM from running, next time you restart

( putting "mouse=" in .vimrc or changing locales not Help)

Have nice day
