    Hi all,

    I have prepared an instruction for
Linux installation of Machinarium retail version:

My copy of the game has no Linux executable file. The only files in the CD are just Install-Machinarium.exe and the soundtrack folder... Then I discovered that the executable file in Machinarium Patch 01 does the job.

Here is the easiest way to install the retail game which has no Linux file:

  • Download Machinarium Patch 01 for Linux: http://www.gamershell.com/download_52708.shtml
  • Download Machinarium Patch 02 for Linux and Mac: http://www.gamershell.com/download_53694.shtml
  • Run the Install-Machinarium.exe file with Wine and install the game.
  • Create a new folder in your Home folder and name it as Machina (or else you like).
  • Open ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Machinarium folder and copy following folders to the Machina folder: 00, 01, 10, 11
  • Patch 01: Copy and rewrite the files in 10, 00 to the suitable folders in Machina.
  • Patch 01: Copy Machinarium file to the Machina.
  • Patch 02: Copy and rewrite the files in 00 to the suitable folder in Machina.


You can start the game by double clicking the Machinarium file in Machina folder. Previous Machinarium installation is not required anymore; you can uninstall it via Wine safely.

Note: Do not forget to turn off Flash Player's hardware accelaration in the game: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/help01.html

That's all. That method is applied for the retail versions which do not have required Linux files. The copy of the games which supports Linux do not need that method.

Have fun...  Cool[/list]

Thanks so much for this. I bought the Collector's Edition DVD and was stunned that, although it says Linux on the box, the Linux files weren't included! Since I have already bought both the Linux and Windows downloads, and can't find the Linux game now - I couldn't afford to buy it again.
