Right now I am using Ubuntu 18.04 on my desktop and I was wondering if the Linux version of x-plane is using wine to install and run the program or if it was a Linux native version or if I should download the windows version instead. I don't usually like using wine on my Linux system so I was wondering if x-plane was using wine.

I guess if there is a Linux installer in addition to the Windows installer (you could see when trying to download the demo), it wouldn't make much sense if the Linux installer would install the Windows version (using Wine)...

Hi, the reason that I had asked if the Linux installer was using wine to install X-plane was that in early versions it was the windows version run under wine which I could never get to work. Happily, I have tried the new Linux installer and my understanding is that it is native to Linux. On Ubuntu and on Arch and they worked perfectly for me.
