*** Please note that this wrapper requires the clean/Galaxy-free/"classic" installer - it will not work with the Galaxy version ***

I've put together a Wine wrapper for Deus Ex, allowing it to be played on Linux almost like a native game & with no Wine knowledge required. This package uses "Deus Exe" 8.1 by Kentie and Chris Dohnal's enhanced OpenGL renderer.

Simply place the script, resource archive and installer files together in the same directory & run the script. The output is a directory containing a "GOG-style" ready-to-go Wine-wrapped version of the game (the build script also has the option to create a tarball of the assembled game package); from there installation is simply a case of moving the directory to wherever you want it installed to - then just run the start script to play :)

Running the start script with the argument "-s" will have it create a shortcut at a location of your choice.

User data is stored under ~/.local/share/deusex

Full details are in the readme.txt and release notes. Here is the download link:

deusex_wine.tar.xz (215 kB, SHA256: 8882693e57714d63a350fb4a5a2c8cd9e18b7ff673fa3e473b1b526a5655b484)

Updated 2017/10/08: Update to support the new installer.

The wrapper uses Wine Staging 2.0 with CSMT enabled. Wine and Winetricks will be downloaded automatically if not present; to avoid redownloading for other scripts the downloaded Wine package will be stored in ~/.cache/winewrap

I've done very little testing with these particular versions of Wine & Deus Exe but I've done a complete playthrough using earlier versions and it ran perfectly, and there's no reason to think this may have changed. However if anyone does run into any problems then post in this thread, Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ & Discussion and/or The "Judas™ does this run in Wine" thread v1.173.

Multiplayer has not been tested and may or may not work, same for Revision.

For more of my Linux Wine wrappers see my GOGmix: adamhm's Linux Wine wrappers. Also check out Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ & Discussion

Should Deus Ex: Human Revolution ever find its way here I plan to make a wrapper for that too - AFAIK it should run quite well in Wine :)

You man are amazing, on a long quest to nixify the world.
What's winetricks for? I've played Deus Ex on Linux for over a decade and I never needed winetricks or any native dll overrides.

It's included just in case the user needs it for anything (e.g. if a mod, utility or whatever needs a particular library).
Worked great for me! Thanks!
I was having lots of trouble when trying to configure wine on my own to make Deus Ex work. However after using this dude´s bash script it worked like a charm!
Thanks dude Deus Ex is now running flawless on my Deepin OS Linux 64 bit.
Works great, thank you for your work Adam!!
Works great.
