Installing on CrossOver 10 from GOG.com, with Hi Res patch
These were the steps I took to get the game running well on Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 using Crossover Games Linux 10.1
Run "Install Windows Software" and install the patch into the same bottle and directory as Arcanum
From the command line, run "wineconsole cmd" to get a windows command prompt
cd to the directory where Arcanum is installed (e.g. H:/.cxgames/Arcanum/drive_c/Program Files/GOG.com/Arcanum
Follow the instructions to set the screen resolution and font sizes (I recommended setting the fonts to the largest size)
To launch the game, run "Run a Windows Command", select the Arcanum bottle, and browse for Arcanum.exe. Once selected, append " -no3d -doublebuffer" to the command, after the .exe, inside the quotes (thanks to MoLE for this trick).
Either run the command or create a launcher and start the game from there.
