Installing LuckyAcePoker software on Linux with Wine
LuckyAcePoker doesn't provide binaries that run natively on Linux. But with the free software Wine it is possible to execute LuckyAcePoker on Linux. And here you will find a step by step tutorial of how to do that. It is not as straightforward as the installation of PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker, but let's begin.
What do you need?
Nine steps to run LuckyAcePoker on Linux with Wine
- Open your shell
- Execute "Winetricks", choose "gecko" and press OK (We needed to install the Gecko engine in order to finish the setup. Otherwise the setup crashes during installation.)
- Go to your Wine directory
:~> cd .wine
- Copy the LuckyAcePoker setup file to your Wine directory
:~> cp /home/user/luckyacepoker.exe /home/user/.wine
- Start the setup with Wine. All necessary files will be downloaded.
:~> wine ./luckyacepoker.exe&
- Follow the instructions of the LuckyAcePoker setup. After the setup is complete, LuckyAcePoker starts the first time. Now you can create a new account or sign in if you already have an account.
- But, as we wanted to close LuckyAcePoker, the client freezes and we had to kill the process. So we had to search for the PID (Process IDentifier) of the application (LuckyAcePokerSetup.exe) and terminate it.
:~> ps aux | grep LuckyAcePokerSetup.exe
:~> kill 'pID'
- For any further start of LuckyAcePoker, you can start the poker client from the shell:
:~> wine "C:\Programme\LuckyAcePoker.com\bin\luckyacepoker.exe"
- or from the KDE menu (see screencast below)
That's it! Have fun and good luck!
