Default Using DarqUI Unified on Linux?

I appreciate there was a question in June about using DarqUI on Linux without the installer but I am wondering what is needed to actually get the Updater to work properly?

Since it does seem that there are Linux versions of .NET 4.x and we have Wine, what stumbling blocks have there been in the past when folks have tried this?

I should add I am not an expert in Linux - I am merely considering a move from Windows since my desktop is not on the supported list for Win11. I will be considering a move to a distro dependent on Ubuntu.

I am aware that the Steam version of EQ2 itself works fine but I am not wanting to lose access to DarqUI and the convenience of having a tool to check for updates.

I'm working with a Darq Side member right now who is using DarqUI on EQII on Steam on Linux. He is getting updates through the utility without any trouble. At this point his only unresolved issue is an error when changing color themes and fonts, but he is able to copy files manually through the OS to make theme changes.

The good news is that Microsoft says Windows 10 will be supported officially through October 2025, and they usually extend security support for a couple of years beyond an OS version's end-of-life date. So we should have plenty of time to migrate.

Thank you for letting me know the app should function under Linux. That is one more item ticked off the list before I move over.

If I have difficulty getting it working I will pop back in and ask.
