Playing poker on Linux
First published at:
Linux is always gaining popularity on the desktop. Playing poker on Linux isn’t that hard and you’ve got a few options:
1. Find something web or flash based. Poker Room, Euro Poker and Hollywood Poker are a few examples of sites that offer that.
2. Java is a cross platform SDK. Absolute Poker, Party Poker, Poker Room, and quite a few others offer Java play.
3. Wine. I managed to get my favorite poker site Titan Poker working perfectly in Wine. Here are instructions for debian based systems:
apt-get install wine
It’s that easy! If you get a regsvr32 error during setup, it is safe to ignore it.
Double click ‘Titan Poker’ which will now have appeared on in ~/Desktop/Titan Poker
It works well, graphic and game quality is the same as Windows, sound also works with the right Wine configuration.
If any online players are reading, I’d personally recommend signing up at Stoxpoker http://www.stoxpoker.com as a fantastic training site.
