Torchlight under Wine on Ubuntu 9.10

This guide will explain to you how to run Torchlight in wine under Ubuntu 9.10.

First, you must start a terminal. Next, install wine and do a little customization:

sudo apt-get install wine
wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks vcrun2008 directx9
wine /the/path/to/the/torchlight_installer.exe

Now run winecfg, and click on Graphics->Emulate a virtual desktop to let wine emulate a desktop in a window, otherwise torchlight won't run.
Finally to run the game, type this in the terminal:

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Runic\ Games/Torchlight/Torchlight.exe SAFEMODE=1

Update: Tommie reported that Torchlight wouldn't run when SAFEMODE=1 was set, but only without it, so if the game doesn't start, try this command instead:

wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Runic\ Games/Torchlight/Torchlight.exe

This is the method that worked for me, so I hope it works for you to. :-)
