Magic Pc 6 on wine

Postby Faucon2001 » Fri Oct 12, 2018 2:02 pm

Hi,

I have tested Magic Pc 6 running on wine 3 latest stable, both on OSX and Ubuntu.
It works great in TC and Calamus SDL runs at an incredible speed,but ... as there is a but, double click doesn’t work.
I have tried to lower double click speed with the cpx, but it doesn’t help.
Also with st-guide, a click on a link open a pop up menu, not the link.
Something smells fishy with mouse management.
As someone managed to get Magic PC working with wine?

I have found the solution. My PC (Nuc core i5) is too fast and double clics are impossible.
The solution, slow down the CPU when using Magic PC 6 with wine.
Under Linux, use cpufrequtils

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install cpufrequtils

Check the range of frequencies accepted by your processor and note the max frequency:

Code: Select all

sudo cpufreq-info

Decrease the upper limit frequency of the governor until double clics work : for my processor it's 1000MHz

Code: Select all

sudo cpufreq-set -u 1000Mhz

To reset to default :

Code: Select all

sudo cpufreq-set -u your_cpu_max_frequency


It works perfectly and even with the slower speed, it's blazing fast.
