Subject: Does P 11 run on Linus with Wine?

I consider switching to Linux Mint with Wine, does anybody know if poser runs in this environment?

It seems that previous versions did run with Wine.


I have zero experience with Linux... I am just fed up with MS and want to try to switch

Neither Poser or DAZ Studio run on Linux natively...


Not sure about P11, but here's what the WINE devs know about Poser's compatibility: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=115

(Last time I tried it was in 2004... it worked for the most part, but it was more than a little touchy back then. Hoping that 18 years may have improved things a bit for you... good luck!)

I used Poser Pro 2014 on Mint a bit in 2020.  It ran well enough on WiNE, although definitely slower than on Windows.  The main problem I had was the broken library, but that now affects all of the Poser 8 - 10 versions, and you wouldn't have to worry about it with P11.  A bigger complication for me was activating some of the lesser 3D programs that I use to support Poser.  It was possible, but I think I had to do some registry editing, copying entries from Windows to Linux.

Cage can be an opinionated jerk who posts without thinking.  He apologizes for this.  He's honestly not trying to be a turkeyhead.

Cage has freebies.  He would like to thank EnglishBob for hosting these.
