    Here's a guide for running UO:R with Razor using the Ubuntu 12.04 operating system.

    Step One: Installing Wine

    • Open your Software Center, search for Wine, and install it.

    Step Two: Installing Winetricks

    • Open your Terminal and use the following command:

      Code:
      wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
      Go ahead and run this command as well. (I'm not sure what this does, but when I went through this process, I was told to run it so...)

      Code:
      sh winetricks corefonts vcrun6 fontfix

    Step Three: Install .NET Framework 2.0

    • Open your Terminal and use the following command:

      Code:
      sh winetricks dotnet20

      Troubleshooting Step Three: 64-bit error
      • If you get an error that says something to the effect of "Cannot install on a 64-bit system" (I forget the exact wording of this error), then open your Terminal and use the following commands:

        First:
        • Code:
          rm -rf ~/.wine

        Second:
        • Code:
          export WINEARCH=win32

    Step Four: Download UO:R Client

    • Download the UO:R Client. Once the installer is downloaded, right click the installer and select the option "Open With Wine Program Loader" and install as you normally would.

    Step Five: Download Razor 1.0.12.15

    • I went with an older version of Razor just to be safe, because I read somewhere that I only an older version would work. If you find that the current version of Razor works with this guide, please let me know. Once you've downloaded Razor 1.0.12.15, right click the installer and select the option "Open With Wine Program Loader" and install as you normally would.

    You should now be good to go. Special thanks to SIRSLY from IRC for helping me fill in the blanks and Telamon for putting up Razor 1.0.12.15 in the downloads section of the site!

    Hello everyone. I'm a newbie here and in some way I'm also new to uo (I had played this game many many years ago and now I don't remember anything).

    I want to share my experience installing uo and razor in Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 64 bit. I'm pretty sure that my method should work for any Ubuntu flavour such Xubuntu, Kubuntu, etc.

    The above installation guide dosen't worked for me but have my pointed to the right path (thanks pdodd!!).

    The latest version of wine I found in the software center is the 1.4 and comes with wine tricks in the same packages. Once wine is installed the only thing you need to do is open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t) and type:

    Code:
    sh winetricks dotnet20
    Then install the UOR Client, the Patch and Razor. Every thing should work out of the box. I hope this can help someone ;)

    Just in case people experience slow performance in ubuntu: Remember to turn off "Use smart CPU usage reduction" under the general tab in razor.
