Well I have successfully gotten Ventrilo to run under wine (I would prefer to use TS believe me but the group that I play with stubbornly sticks to Ventrilo) with just one minor problem. Unless the ventrilo window is focused it does not capture keypresses. I've tried using a program called ventriloctrl posted on the ubuntu forums but it does not work for me. The tool to test works fine and I'm pretty sure I have it setup correctly but it does not pass keystrokes on to vent like it should. Does anybody have any other programs that might work for this purpose?
