Neverwinter Nights on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit with Nvidia

My NWN install doesn’t see as much action as it used to, but I’m still happy I can run it on my somewhat new install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit.

  • I solved the too-much-black issue by “export MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE=-GL_NV_vertex_program”
  • Solved the too-much-white issue by using the 310 experimental driver for my NVIDIA Quadro 2000M from the ubuntu-x-swat ppa
  • Solved the non-starting client by removing the package libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0

Given that, my nwn script looks like this:


# This script runs Neverwinter Nights from the current directory


# If you do not wish to use the SDL library included in the package, remove
# ./lib from LD_LIBRARY_PATH
#export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./lib:./miles:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
#export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./miles:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./miles:/usr/lib32/nvidia-experimental-310
export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulse
export MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE=-GL_NV_vertex_program

./nwmain $@
