    did it, ok but seems that steam (at least) need some windows fonts. copying from windows to the pseudo windows/fonts directory doesn’t work… what else?
    thanks

      Download winetricks, save it somewhere on your PC, make it executable ($ chmod a+x /path/to/winetricks ) and then just do
      /path/to/winetricks corefonts
      If you have some corruption with font rendering perhaps you should
      /path/to/winetricks gdiplus

    Is it better to run in chroot mode or just install into /usr/local ? What if I first installed official packages 1.4 from repo which installs into /usr/bin and creates /home/username/.wine directory. should I remove them first and then install from wine1.6 sources ?
