    Feel free to post and link here anything related to Automobilista on Linux ( / Mac) and also please "sign" if you are a Linux user and you want Automobilista to be 100% functional on our favourite OS.
    thanks!

    - To devs- Are planned a SteamOS / LInux port?
    - Server install AMS with steamcmd on linux

    Automobilista on Linux using Wine:
    WineHQ - Automobilista
    WineHQ - Automobilista 1.3.5
    (btw thanks to leillo1975 for starting all this)

    If you want your life to be easier with wine I recommend PlayOnLinux / PlayOnMac:
    Home - PlayOnLinux - Run your Windows applications on Linux easily!

    Play Automobilista on Mac!

    Hello
    I'm leillo1975 and I'm a Ubuntu 17.04 64bits user. I have a personal blog and write reviews and articles in Spanish about Linux/SteamOS Gaming in www.JugandoEnLinux.com.

    I'm a fan of racing games like Grid Autosport, Gran Turismo saga, F1 20xx, Project Cars, Dirt Rally and about 2 weeks, Automobilista, of course.

    I hate to reboot my computer to Window$ to execute some of my favorite games. It's less frequent that I have to do that, because most of my work and games can do in my operating system.

    The reason why I want to play Automobilista natively on Linux is that there is not any real racing simulator in GNU-Linux/SteamOS.

    I try to play with wine, and the emulation is good and fast enought to enjoy this game, but controllers don't have force feedback with this wrapper. There are problems also with HUD in game. For this reason, I think that this could have a native port.

    I think that Reiza have an oportunity to open a breach in the racing simulation genre in the Linux/SteamOS platform ...guys, you could be the first one . Linux users are usually very collaborative and compresive with the software developers, and of course they would be very grateful. I offer me for send feedback, testing, impressions...

    Some days ago, Reiza devs told me that they don't considering to give support at this time. I hope that in a future they can reconsider this.

    Like I write in other post, I found a game that have Force Feedback support with Wine. The game is Life For Speed and it works perfect and fast with the last version of Wine.
    Is obvious that the most of racing games have a compatibility problem with Wine in the FF comunication.

    Yes, all of the racing games that share the same engine like rfactor and automobilista has the same problem with wine.
    LFS and also the kartracing-pro are amazing games with great ffb that works with wine.

    Rfactor 2 demo also works perfect with wine, but it has the same problem with f. Feedback... Another great game that linuxers can't enjoy

    The problem lies with the linux force feedback drivers however. Have a look at the logitech drivers:
    Supported Devices · Eliasvan/Linux-Force-Feedback Wiki · GitHub

    Most wheels are NOT fully supported! Most wheels are missing the RAMP, PERIODIC, and CONDITION effects. Depending on how the ffb of a game is written, those wheels will not or only partially be able to have ffb. The only wheel that is fully suppoted is the G920 atm. So, at least in theory with that wheel the ffb should work fine with all titles, including rF and Automobilista.

    (Btw: There is a way to show and log the ffb commands to the driver while driving. You can then see that most commands will get a "not supported" answer. With that method you can check whether wine works correctly or not)

    Why do I have Force Feedback support in Dirt Rally, Grid Autosport and F1 2015 (linux native games)?

    I own a Driving Force GT

    Well, there is ffb support for most wheels to some degree. As you can see there is AUTOCENTER and the CONSTANT effect that are supported. So, I guess Feral Interactive created the ffb using only those effects, but I don't know. But maybe you could ask the maintainer of the linux ffb driver (the page that I posted), I guess he knows more details. The problem is it is all very confusing and it's hard to find good information

    I know this is an old thread; however, I will purchase Automobilista when it runs on GNU/Linux/SteamOS (i.e., without the need for Wine). Currently, Feral Interactive seems to be capturing the $ of GNU/Linux sim racing enthusiasts.

    I believe that this, unfortunately, will never happen. Let's hope they have this in mind in their next game

    Finally Automobilista works in Linux via Steam Play (Proton). It don't have Force Feedback support (another games like Project Cars with Steam Play works)

    It's a pity that I didn't play anymore since this post. Now automobilista is almost another retro game.
