it seemed that when i was able to download WoW before from the online client that gecko would pop up and i would have to accept that... and when it does not appear then i cannot download WoW (it goes to the end user agreement and won't let me click on agree but it will let me disagree). any suggestions to how i can get the gecko to work? i have tried installing all the gecko i can find in synaptic but that didn't change anything. anything else that i may have missed and i do not know the terminal well enough to know what to do there either.

You can just install gecko manually:

See if that helps

It's actually a problem with the current stable version of wine (the eula thing)

Upgrade to the newest release of wine and you should be fine

http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

You can follow the how to, but it boils down to two commands

If you are running 8.10

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

if you are running 8.04

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

follow that up by upgrading wine


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then try the installer.
