One of my friends a couple weeks ago as it happened said he got PokerStars to run perfectly, as if it was native (and on kubuntu).Pretty certain he was using WINE.

Funny, everytime I try making something work by using wine, I just end up throwing up, falling down, and passing out.

Well he should have just said that. In that case, he is a faggot and if I ever see him I will kick his ass, and then misquote Nietchze at him. I might even misspell Nietzche. Whatever, Nietczhe will be involved because I think that highly of myself, and that little of myenemy's bloodied, limp body.

WINE is definately the way to go.

This WINE you speak of, does it work for Macs?

I ran PokerStars through Wine exclusively for about 6 months... It works beautifully. (Well except it doesn't do screen resize or the "mouseover" on people at a table .. but easily bareable for not running Windows)If you are using Ubuntu , do the following (not exact commands .. but pretty close):1. Run the command "sudo aptitude install wine"2. Download the pokerstars installer3. Run the command "wine pokerstars_installer.exe"4. Run pokerstars via wine, ie "wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/PokerStars/PokerStars.exe"n.b. I now run Windows Vista in a VMware VM to run PokerStars, as I now use PokerTracker (which I wasn't able to get to work on Linux)

YBravo: Yes there is a version of Wine for Mac OSX (Only for the newer Intel Based Processor Macs)Take a look at DarWine, however I have never used it, so your results may vary :club: My suggestions:If you are using one of the newer Intel based processors .. take a look at ParallelsIf you have one of the older PowerPC based Mac's take a look at Virtual PC
