Run Reason 5 on Linux EASILY!

So, I have been working on getting Reason 5 running through Wine on Linux machines. If anyone has tried before, then you know that the top menus are not clickable, so to save, open, etc., you have to use keyboard shortcuts.

I found a patch on WineHQ that fixed the issue, but didnt make it into the main branch, so I compiled it myself and tested a script.

Im happy to report that Reason 5 now runs on Linux just fine, with full features, using Wine and PlayOnLinux.

PlayOnLinux is simply a front-end for Wine that allows easier configuration through use of scripts.

If you have a linux machine, and want to try it, go for it. If you have any issues, please stop by our forums at

NOTE* This is not an advertisement. We are a non-profit, open-source project, and Im a huge audiophile. haha. This just made my studio complete.
I hope this helps others.
