HOWTO: WoW with Wine

This howto is for installing and playing World of Warcraft using Wine under Ubuntu.

The howto found in this post is just a short'n'simple version, intended to demonstrate the minimum amount of steps required to make WoW run. The complete howto, which will likely be more of a help to you, is found in the Ubuntu community documentation wiki:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft



Short'n'simple HOWTO
(only 8 steps)

1. Install Wine from here: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

2. Copy all of the files from all of the CD's to a directory on your hard drive. Just overwrite when prompted, and make sure to copy CD 1 last (you need a specific file from CD 1).

3. Open a terminal (also called a konsole, CLI, and command prompt) and do these commands inside to start the installation:

cd /<path-to-directory>/
wine Installer.exeReplace <path-to-directory/> with the right path to the directory where you copied all the files.

4. Wait and click next when possible.

5. Do this command in a terminal, and just press ok to close the configuration utility that opens:

winecfg6. Now run this command in a terminal:

gedit ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf Add these lines to the text file:

SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "150"
SET gxApi "OpenGL"7. Save the file and exit.

8. You should be able to play WoW using the shortcut on your desktop, or by running this command:

wine "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe"


Reg tweak
This is a simple registry edit for Wine that either will either act positively or negatively on your graphics performance. It may fix graphical glitches, increase framerate, stop the game from crashing, or it will create glitches, decrease the performance, and even make the game crash. You should give it a try to see what is does for you, as you may always easily remove it again, if it acts negatively for you.

Open a terminal window, type regedit and press enter. This will start the Wine equivalent of the windows registry editor. If you are familiar with using the registry editor under windows then this is pretty much the same.

Notice: the guide below is case sensitive!

1. Find this key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\
2. Highlight the wine folder in the left hand pane by clicking left on it. The icon should change to an open folder
3. Right-click on the wine folder and select [NEW][KEY]
4. Replace the text New Key #1 with OpenGL
5. Right-click in the right hand pane and select [NEW] then [String Value]
6. Replace New Value #1 with DisabledExtensions
7. Then double click anywhere on the line, a dialog box will open.
8. In the value field type GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object



How To Get Help
If this short guide doesn't work right away for you, then please look over the complete howto first:

Can you fix the script lines that you quote because obviously

#!/bin/sh X :3 -ac & # Launches a new X session on display 3 cd "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft" # Goto WoW dir sleep 2 # Forces the system to have a break for 2 seconds DISPLAY=:3 /usr/X11R6/bin/wine WoW.exe -opengl # Launches WoW
won't work without line breaks in there somewhere.

Cool deal Sammi, and thanks for taking on the update of this important document (for those of us who play).

I'm worried about the upcoming WoW patch though. Can you tell me if our WoW installs through Wine will download and apply the patches or will we have to do something else to get that done? I suppose it may (or may not) break Wine .26 as well.

Only a beta tester of the expansion can really answer that for now.

Good news is that several testers have reported that they have gotten that expansion to work in Wine, according to the WOW's entry on appdb.winehq.org: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=6013

Hey Sammi, I created a script to launch wow but when I run it I have a couple of concerns. First, WoW launches fine but when I exit I'm sitting on an ugly gray screen (the X screen 3) and I have to CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE to get it to go away. When it does go away I get to my second concern: The terminal window is running tons and tons of empty lines (carriage returns).

I know I can run the script from a launcher without opening a terminal window but will I be losing any CPU cycles due to whatever is causing all these carriage returns?

How can I get the script to shut down X 3 when I'm done playing?


#!/bin/sh

X :3 -ac & # Launches a new X session on display 3
nvidia-settings --load-config-only
cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/
sleep 2 # Forces the system to have a break for 2 seconds
DISPLAY=:3 wine WoW.exe -opengl & # Launches WoW


I added the nvidia-settings line from an older how-to. Not sure what, if anything, it still does. Evidently it re-enables some graphics options that might not otherwise be enabled.

Oh and I had to use SUDO X in the first line because when I tried "X :3 -ac &" it reported: X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting so I did this:
In Terminal:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure x11-common
1. Select "Anyone" for who has permission to start the X server.
2. Enter nice value ( 0 recommended, this is irrevelent to permissions, but you will be prompted.)
(from another thread)
That fixed the sudo problem.

I actually never tested the script, just copy/pasted :mrgreen:
But now I tried it out, just for you ;)

In my experience that script will set up a new x client on F9, where only WOW will run. After you have quit WOW you can just change back to F7.
To sum up: You don't have to ctlr-alt-backspace, but rather you have to ctrl-alt-F7 :D

I'm also adding "sudo" to the script, because of you ;)

Actually, don't add the sudo.. I need to remove it from mine. The fix was running the reconfigure and allowing everyone to run X. The Sudo never really worked out for me anyway.

what's your sound buffer set at in your wow config?

Ha sorry I wrote that right before passing out last night. :p

Wine is whatever the newest version is, I just installed it from wine's site.

Video card is an nvidia geforce go 6400 (laptop. Not a great video card, but it runs WoW at 30+ fps, except for this odd problem of course.) Have 1GB of ram. Sound buffer was at 100. The game seems to run perfectly until about 10 minutes in, with nothing to cause it that I can see. Need to know anything else just tell me.

I don't see SET SoundBufferSize "100" in there. Is it? maybe I missed it.

Sammi
December 7th, 2006, 06:53 PM
You could try to run WoW, wait for the problem to start, then alt-tab out and start a terminal where you do this command "top". It should show you which application is using most system resources.

You should also try to do this before and after the problem starts in order to do a comparison of how many resources applications are consuming before and after the problem arises, this should show you what program is acting up.

I have never heard of a similar problem with WoW before. Maybe it's actually a problem with an external application, which is acting up and draining the computers resources.

Yeah I noticed that, and re-added it after I posted that, and still got the same problem. Also, I checked a few times, and nothing is taking up many resources when the problem happens. :(

I don't wanna speak too soon (it will probably screw up after I hit post message), but I found someone else with the same problem, and it looks like turning off shaders fixed it for them. Been playing about 45 minutes now with no problems, hoping to God that it fixed my problem.

Edit: Look at that, 5 minutes later and it screws up. Hate to say it but I'm giving up and putting windows back on. Sick of doing this crap. I hate windows, but as long as wine fails to do what I need, I can't leave it.

When I start up WoW (downloaded my ATI Drivers yesterday) its really messed up. Nothing has Skinns there is no boxes and it seems like _everything_ is distorted.

edit: I rember seeing that screen yesterday (but it was not distorted at all.) I think I may have installed my drivers wrong or something. I installed my Nvidia FX5200 earlier but I am unsure how to uninstall my current graphics drivers.

Edit2: I have isolated the problem, sort of. It is either what I did in the config.wtf or the registry I edited.

Nvidia? You seem to be really confused about you grafics driver, because I thought you said you were using ATI :-D
Personally I have a Nvidia grafics card, and I feel very lucky. ATI cards are not very stable in Linux, because ATI are very slow with driver develotment :evil:

Anyway if you are trying to install ATI drivers then I would recomend you try this guide first:
http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Installation_Guide

then:
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=305665&highlight=fglrx

Automatix Bleeder also has an option for installing ATI drivers automaticly, but it may not be stable:

Ah I didn't clarify correctly. I have two graphics cards sitting in my room (well one is installed). A Radeon 9550 and a Nvidia FX5200. I think it was most likely the registry edit that I did that caused all the problems

Thanks for your help though, Sammi!

I changed the howto for you. Tried to elaborated on the section where you are having a problem ;)

See:

Installing WoW
Copy all of the files from all of the CD's to a directory on your hard drive (overwrite when prompted).
Then start the installation by opening a terminal and doing these commands:cd /<path-to-directory>/
wine Installer.exe
Replace <path-to-directory/> with the right path to the directory where you copied all the files.Alternatively you can just copy the entire World of Warcraft folder from a Windows installation.

Hi, new to Linux/Ubuntu. Version 6.06

I installed wine just a few minutes ago, copied all of the WoW files from the CD and put them in a directory. typed in that directory.., Wine Installer.exe ...

the installer shows up, the buttons on screen are too small to read, but i hit the biggest one and what do you know, its brings up the EULA. I "read" the Eula, (it was garbled..) wait a second, Hit Agree
and pop up comes up with

Unrecognized key "options". (AttributeParser::Parse)

and goes back to the first screen. when i try the other buttons similar popups occur and i cannot continue with installation.

any advice?

Edit:
Perhaps I installed wine incorrectly..

Have you done tweak number one in the howto?

There are also some dll files you can try to add to your Wine installation. Two of these are mentioned in the troubleshoting section in this howto:


To get WOW to run, you may need to get two .dll files from a windows installation or here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/htdocs/ubuntu/img/u-www.png msvcp60.dll (http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcp60) (MD5: 6050bcc1b23f3df7a1876cbdcbac8232)
https://help.ubuntu.com/htdocs/ubuntu/img/u-www.png mfc42.dll (http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?mfc42) (MD5: 7e4d1b552ee1dfa859ba9033b3670590) and place them in .wine/drive_c/windows/system. You will, however, need a Windows license to use these files.
I found this in the howto on appdb.winehw.org:

Problem #3 - When installing WoW, clicking on the "Install World of Warcraft" button
causes the Wow installer to crash.


To fix the Wow installer from crashing when you click on the "Install World of Warcraft" button
just download these two dlls (riched20.dll and riched32.dll) into
/home/[your login]/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

You will also need to add riched20 and riched32 to the dll overide section on the Libraries tab in wincfg.
Select native then builtin for each of these. You may only need to have these overides in place while you
install the game. Although I have both these files in my system32 folder I do not have any overides set for
playing the game. [Nick]
riched20.dll (http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?riched20)
riched32.dll (http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?riched32)
Don't worry too much about the garbled eula in the installation, it's a common issue, which normally can be disregarded. The showstopper bug must be related to something else.

If you enabled a Ubuntu Wine repository, like the howto specified, then Wine should have installed fine. You can have a look at your Wine installation in Synaptic. Just search for Wine, and it should turn up. See if there are any errors or if it's not the latest version (0.9.28).

I think that the plf repositories that are reporting as "404 not found" have been discontiniued, and therefor you should disregard that error, and maybe even disable that repository in Synaptic.

Yes, i had done tweak #1 prior to installing, while i was still copying the files from the CDs. I tried to install it and failed so i deleated the key for OpenGL in my registry and tried again and failed.
The Tweak is currently in use.
I believe I properly moved the DLLs into my wine directory, though im unsure how i can check.

Still cannot install WoW.

Then I can offer you an alternative solution, which is mentioned in the howto: Install WoW in Windows and then just copy the whole WoW folder to your Ubuntu partition afterwards.

WoW will run best using OSS. Run 'winecfg', select 'Audio', then select 'OSS Driver' as Wine's sound driver. Make sure no other driver is selected.

Next, add the following to the file WTF/Config.WTF in your WoW directory.


SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "100"
SET gxApi "OpenGL"



Ok, I did that first little bit, but I can't figure out what to do next. I'm pretty much a complete noob here. Where do I find that file/how do I add to it? I don't have a WTF directory in my WoW directory. I've tried running WoW, and everything works so far, except there's no sound, so I assume this is the problem. Thanks!

Sammi
January 11th, 2007, 03:12 AM
I just looked in my WoW directory and I found out it's in fact lower case "wtf". Don't know if that'll help you.

If you copy/paste the whole path name to your WoW directory in this tread, then I can give you a command, which should make your config.wtf file open up in a text editor.

MsTiggy
January 11th, 2007, 07:00 PM
Ok, I think I figured out the problem. I was looking in the directory where I put the files from the CDs, not the directory where WoW was installed to. The problem is, I don't know how to find the folder where WoW was installed to, because I can't figure out where wine put it. I used the default folder that wine wanted to use, would that be the same for everyone? According to wine, it's in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft. Does that help?

Sammi
January 11th, 2007, 07:33 PM
Wine's fake C:\ drive is actually found in /home/<username>/.wine/drive_c

.wine is a hidden folder. You can press ctrl-h in nautilus to show hidden files and folders.

MsTiggy
January 11th, 2007, 07:46 PM
Thanks! I found it.

I found the WTF directory, but it was empty, so I used gedit to make a Config.WTF file, and copied and pasted the three SET commands into it. I now have sound!!!!

Now I have a whole new problem.

When I try to sign on, it says "Unable to apply patch" and won't let me do anything.
I completely reinstalled when I was trying to fix the sound, and I think I probably messed something up by doing that. Any ideas?

I fixed it!

I just had to manually download an older version of the patch, and then run it in wine. Then WoW just automatically updated from there.

try commenting that line (or little section) out from that .sh file . Look around in forums and search for "dash" there was something that you had to change in the file to get it running under the true bash. In edgy they changed the bash to dash..look:

I've followed all the instuctions, but everytime i play WoW it works for ~5 minutes or so and then it locks up my computer. the error says something about pixel errors but i have all the shaders turned off in game.

I'm using edgy, wine version 9.29, video card is ati xpress 1100, direct rendering is working, any thoughts on how to fix this?

i managed to catch the error before it locked up.

I have had WoW working fine following the instructions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft
and its been going just fine for the last couple weeks except today, there was a hotfix or something and it had an error patching so I used their repair tool, got the hotfix to install, but then all my settings were reset.

So then, I went back and changed the SET gxApi "OpenGl" to SET gxApi "d3d" to change the video settings without the game crashing, but it's still crashing anyways.

I know this worked before so not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I too am unable to set video options. In OpenGL it crashes when I hit Okay on the video options screen, in D3D it crashes a couple seconds after I'm logged in.

Hi

I followed this guide and installed WoW and it worked perfectly when i had a ATI card. Now I have changed to BFG GeForce 7800GS OC 256MB DVi / TV-Out (AGP). It installs correctly and I can patch it to the newest but when i start it, the "background" is gone and it flickers. When I log in I cant see a thing except for the menus. I turn off the Full-Screen Glow Effect in video and I can see but it still flickers. I think my nVidia drivers are right installed, but I don't know.
I have also tried to run it in D3D but it just crash when i start.

Here is the Config.WTF file

SET gxApi "OpenGL"
SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "100"
SET gxColorBits "24"
SET gxDepthBits "24"
SET gxResolution "1280x1024"

Hey guys,

Not a huge issue but I am noticing that not all my sound effects are playing in WoW. Mainly the sound effects that accompany a spell being cast or a profession such as the mining sound or the skinning sound. It really is pretty inconsistent and most of the time the sounds play fine. like I said not a big deal. anyone else notice this?

Ill post more about my setup if i'm not the only one with this issue.

thanks

Well I just got the game installed, went fine...

But now when I load it up on the login screen its horribly choppy....

Xpress ATI Radeon 1100

| grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes


Wine verison 0.9.29

Running opengl mode, haven't tried d3d mode, or installing the dlls yet, would they help?

Just tested d3d, runs A LOT better....maybe I should play it as that?

DARKGuy
January 15th, 2007, 10:10 PM
What dlls?

In my setting, nVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 128Mb, 256Mb RAM, 933Mhz, it goes damn faster in OpenGL than in D3D (though you can change video settings in D3D... trying to do that in OpenGL just crashes wow).

Did you try moving all your AddOns out of the way? it solved the problems for me, then I started adding the addons back a few at a time. It is said that some AddOns cause conflicts when loading (they crashed my comp twice until I remove them from the AddOns folder temporarly).

Did you check your drivers? freed up all memory? have the swap partition enabled? I had long and hard issues with apps hanging because the swap partition wasn't enabled >.<. Did you try with the xorg.conf set at 24-bit depth too? dunno, some suggestions :P

How do I check my swap?

I seem to remember having this problem before and I updated a kernel header (or didn't update it)...

It seems I have the error 132...

DARKGuy
January 16th, 2007, 12:28 AM
Aw crap!... if I'm not mistaken, you have to post in the Blizz forums for getting the 132 error fixed (unless you play in private servers, then post in the server's forum) since that devil is server-side :(...

About the swap, I could check it using "top" in the terminal. If you see something like:

Swap: 0k total, 0k used, 0k free, 142196k cached

Then that means you don't have it activated. BUT if you see something like:

Swap: 747012k total, 9868k used, 737144k free, 142220k cached

Then you're alright and have nothing to worry about.

How to activate swap again? it's tricky... the method I used was using an Ubuntu LiveCD (or anything that has gparted in it), booting with it, running "sudo gparted" in a terminal and then carefully right-clicking the partition marked as Linux-swap (which in my case was a Logical partition instead of a primary one, thus why swap didn't work) and deleting it. Then reallocating that free space into a primary partition, and formatting it as Linux-swap.

After that, I booted without the LiveCD, ran gparted again the same way, and then right-clicked the Swap partition and choose "swapon". That should activate the swap for you.

However, be careful when using gparted (or any partition program!) and double check the drive and the selections you're making! I don't want you to screw up your main partition with a wrong click :(

Is there any reason that OpenGL mode would be choppy? Maybe a misconfiguration?

Edit: Would copying an install from windows maybe help with the issues I seem to be having?

DARKGuy
January 16th, 2007, 10:38 PM
Chopyp OpenGL... I'd say to get other drivers, or to check if the ones you have are the correct ones... try measuring with glxgears or any other game/app that uses OpenGL and see how many FPS you get. Changing xorg.conf to bit depth 16/24 could help too. You could also try copying from a Windows partition *shrug*

Alright, for the first part..... Vista driver running under linux? WTF!!! I mean, that's the most WTF thing I've ever heard o_o holy..... well..... first of all, get by all means a correct driver for your video card (btw which one do you have?). I dunno about ATI though, all I have and know is nVIDIA ](*,) but, a correct driver install should -so- fix your problems globally, and maybe increase performance too. In my GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP8X 128Mb in my 933Mhz w/256Mb RAM and nVIDIA drivers 9631 I get about 12-16 fps everywhere (with addons and inside towns and outside, outside maybe more... reachs to 20) and 30-45 inside buildings. All with the OpenGL thing and lowest detail settings, no shaders or anything, but it's very playable to say at least. So I'm guessing you have a PC more powerful than mine, so you should be able to get even more FPS with the correct drivers. Generally, OpenGL under WINE runs better than Direct3D.

I had a hotkey in XFCE long time ago with control+alt+right and control+alt+left (or it was in Gnome? not sure) to switch between workspaces. I moved WoW to the 3rd or 4th and just pressed the keys and was in another workspace. Used to do that for multitasking between msn and wow.

No I use the generic fglrx driver, the only driver on atis site is for vista

I have the ATI Xpress 1100.

I'm currently saving the cash to build a desktop with an nvidia card.

DARKGuy
January 18th, 2007, 05:30 PM
Man, you -so- need a correct driver for your card. A generic one won't give you very good results with 3D. Search some info about what's the best driver you can use, that would fix all your problems x)

I have been converted! I've always "messed around" with Linux. Trying to learn what I can, getting frustrated and putting linux down for a bit, then coming back. I've always kept windoz box as my primary because of gaming. I got Ubuntu Dapper 6.0.6 and Wine 0.9.29 installed on my Dell laptop yesterday and followed alot of this tutorial/thread and got WoW working in linux! On to my only problem atm:

I am of course running WoW in OpenGL on an NVidia card and it runs like a CHAMP. As good is not better in long gaming sessions then my windoz box. I've read lots of threads saying that trying to change in game settings crashes the game. So I tryed it and it does indeed. So, I load WoW with the -d3d flag and it does indeed still start up, but the graphics are all funkafied, well at least teh ones that render. I can see buttons and the login box but I dont get any of the game graphics, making it impossible to change any settings because I can not see teh settings tabs when I hit ESC etc. Majority of the screen is black.

Any advice on how to possibly get enough graphics when in D3D to change WoW settings when I need to?

Ok, so I got WoW working. I have graphics (a little laggy, but functional), I have sound (also a little laggy, but I haven't tried tweaking the sound buffer yet). My problem is, it will run for a while, then all of a sudden crash. Won't give any explanation or warning, just all of a sudden, it exits WoW. This seems to be happening after about 15-20 minutes of playing. Any suggestions?

Change to OpenGL mode: wine WoW.exe -opengl
Change to Window mode: wine WoW.exe -w
Combine both!: wine WoW.exe -w -opengl

Configure wine to use ALSA or OSS (using winecfg)

That's all that comes to mind :/ maybe if you leave the terminal opened while playing WoW until it crashes, the debug info it outputs might be helpful.

I managed to get WoW to work with wine. However, it's running in d3d mode (it's very slow), and when I try to run it in openGL mode, a "unable to start 3d acceleration" message pops up. I tried again to run it as OpenGL from Terminal to see if any errors came up.

I don't have much of an idea about what all of this means. Is it something that I should change in game, or is there something wrong with my config.wtf file?

2029 frames in 5.0 seconds = 405.677 FPS
1475 frames in 5.0 seconds = 294.998 FPS

The last two I was watching, causing a plunge in FPS...I think this is the source of my issue, when it have gears run in the background it runs at 1400 as you see


Running wow with -opengl nets me a grand total of 2 fps...

Also, when I tried configuring wine to ALSA, the sound got a lot worse. I was using OSS to begin with, and that seems to be the best sound set up.

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Well, under the Monitor setting, the default depth is 24. Do I change the subsections' display depths to 24 as well?

I used OpenGL mode, and I still had the same problem.

Here's everything it spit out while WoW was running, and then when it crashed. I'm not sure what information is important, so I'll just paste the whole thing.

Also, when I tried configuring wine to ALSA, the sound got a lot worse. I was using OSS to begin with, and that seems to be the best sound set up.

Hmm. What is your display depth? OpenGL doesn't work that good in 16-bit... also, in winecfg try disabling pixel and vertex shaders. *shrugs* do you have updated video drivers? (in case of nVIDIA, at least, get the drivers from the official site.. I dunno about ATI though). Try closing all programs opened before trying WoW... that's all that comes to mind :/ else, you could paste the same logfile in the WINE forums so they can help you there more than I have tried xD.

Oh, also, try copying WoW to a local folder on your Linux drive. Unless the folder where you have WoW is in a FAT32 drive (which I doubt), Linux can't write in NTFS partitions without a special package, so I'd recommend to try to copy the entire WoW folder (without Program Files, it's okay) to somewhere in your home folder and run it from there after changing all permissions to 777 inside the folder (say you copied the WoW folder to /home/user/WoW, then you'd do "chmod 777 WoW -R" from your home folder). That'd be a good try.


Well, under the Monitor setting, the default depth is 24. Do I change the subsections' display depths to 24 as well?

Hm, I wonder, do you have the correct video drivers for your video card? The monitor's default depth in 24 is okay, just be sure that in the display depths in the subsections there is also a 24 one there.

Yes, there is a 24 depth in the conf file. I also downloaded the latest x86 driver from the official Nvidia site. I don't know how to install it. The directions on the site said run nvidia-xconfig first. I downloaded that, but I don't know how to execute it from the terminal.

Installing the nVIDIA driver should be no issue. First, uninstall anything named "nvidia" in your packages list (except nvidia-xconfig, that's alright anyways). Note: where it says "nvidia-installer-goes-here.run" means the file name of the nvidia driver you downloaded):

1. Kill X. ("sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop").
2. Go where you downloaded the nvidia installer (if Firefox downloaded it "automatically" then it should be in your desktop: "cd Desktop")
3. "sudo chmod +x nvidia-installer-goes-here.run"
4. "sudo sh nvidia-installer-goes-here.run"

Follow the instructions. If it complains about not finding the kernel headers, then find your kernel version with "uname -r" and then do "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-(kernel version goes here)". Say, if "uname -r" says "2.6.10-17-386" then I'd do "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.10-17-386" . The download is a bit heavy (10-20Mb) but it'll be worth it.

5. Follow the instructions, then, until it finishes. When it does, go back to X: "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart".

That's it in basic steps, maybe I'll make a better HowTo for the official driver (and not the Ubuntu one) in my blog, who knows. Hope it helps! :grin:

Hi i have a problem,
I've copied my wow folder from an XP installation.

I am enable to run it and login (did everything in the guide, if i didn't missed anything).
But when i select my character and is about to login WoW crashes around 70%.

Anyone that have the same problem?
I have an P4 1.8 Ghz 768mb ram and a Geforce2 MX 400

Since you copied WoW from an XP partition, you should change the permissions of everything to have read/write for your user (or, better, chmod 777 Z:\media\hda3\World of Warcraft\ -R).

Also, did you check you have the correct video drivers? The GeForce2 MX 440 doesn't support pixel/vertex shaders in WoW (my mom's PC doesn't, in Windows) so using winecfg and disabling pixel shader / vertex shader could be an idea too.

Good luck man.

I am getting "Word of Warcraft was unable to start 3D acceleration". I have the nVidea drivers installed (I am running Beryl) I have a GeForce 6600, newest wine and followed all the instructions.

I am trying to run the newest already patched version of The Burning Crusade copied from a Windows drive, any ideas?

You can't run WoW under beryl/xgl/AIGLX. You need to boot in a regular session :)

Actually, you can o.o but you'll need a hell of a PC to be able to play it at least. It's cool, to place WoW on the edge of the cube :P it's tricky too, since GLX stuff is hard to make it work correctly >.<

I've been able to get WoW to run with beryl/aiglx. It's fun, but not very memory efficient :D

But I've got a new and expensive computer. I had two movies and WoW running at the same time and watching it all being transparant on the edge of the cube. WoW was even running at a playable framerate - very cool indeed 8)

But sometimes I've had nvidia driver or beryl versions that just didn't want to play nice. ATM it's all fine tough. All at newest versions.

Seriously, are there any advantages at all using anything more recent than Wine 0.9.25 with WoW?? The video settings work great (without crashing) using this and I can't see any other bugs after hours (days?) of playing. Sure, there's some Direct 3D support in Wine 0.9.29 but it's so undeveloped that nobody can use it anyway... I've had VERY few difficulties with 0.9.25.

My advice is to get the 0.9.25 debs from here:
http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/archive/index.html
Install it and then lock the version of your 0.9.25 wine package in Synaptic (you need "Proposed updates" to be checked under "Repositories" because of a bug in the original Synaptic for Edgy that disables locking).

Wine is a great piece of software, but the higher version mustn't always mean the better. I'm sure there will be a final version one day, with which we will all be satisfied but it's not 0.9.29.

So what are the methods i can use to get my wow working? Switching to meta-city didnt help or do i have to disable AIGLX and XGL from my xorg.conf?

And suppose i want to see just how laggy it is on a spinning cube how do i get that to work?

thanks

Oh, also, try copying WoW to a local folder on your Linux drive. Unless the folder where you have WoW is in a FAT32 drive (which I doubt), Linux can't write in NTFS partitions without a special package, so I'd recommend to try to copy the entire WoW folder (without Program Files, it's okay) to somewhere in your home folder and run it from there after changing all permissions to 777 inside the folder (say you copied the WoW folder to /home/user/WoW, then you'd do "chmod 777 WoW -R" from your home folder). That'd be a good try.

Well, knock on wood, but I copied my WoW folder into my home folder, changed the permissions, and everything seems to be working pretty well now. Hopefully it won't crash the minute I post this. :roll: Thanks for the help!

I was directed to another installation article by a friend who had spoken to another member of this site with the same graphics card as me. I didn't know you had answered me already, but the instructions are similar. And it worked! My card is now correctly installed. I didn't do the chmod process, so I'll do that next. I did test WoW regardless, and it no longer crashes with the error messages. Thanks a lot!

DARKGuy

Actually... now that you say it, I think then your problem is that you don't have an external video card. Internal video cards for Linux games aren't really the thing, overall if they're being emulated in WINE or Cedega. My PC is a 933Mhz, 256Mb RAM and a GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP8X. Thanks to the video card I can play WoW (with WINE or Cedega) with the default settings and still playable, UT2004 (native, default settings), Savage (native, highest settings available) in Linux with no problems.

I may be wrong though, is the ATI Xpress 1100 onboard? if so, get an external one, it'll do -good- :)

Sammi

WTF is a external video card ???????????????

You must be confused as to what the difference is between PCI/AGP video cards and onboard ones.

"Onboard" means that the video card is a integrated part of the motherboard. PCI/AGP are slots that you can use to connect different types of hardware to you motherboard, such as video card.

Onboard video cards usually aren't very good.

Sammi

Look man, Beryl is not even beta software, it's alpha software. It's not stable and NOONE will recommend that you run it's simultaneously with WoW.

But disclamer aside, I can get it to work in fullscreen and all :D

There is a performance hit though, so I don't use it daily - only to impress my non-linux friends when they drop by ;)

What problem are you having with it? Can you give us a error message or screenshot of the problem?

I don't have any errors. WoW runs between 40 and 70 fps with AA and Beryl enabled. The problem I have is that the top and bottom window manager panels are on top of WoW and cut off those portions of the screen.

It's not a big deal as I can just switch to Metacity. Just thought it'd be fun to rotate the cube from WoW to Thottbot.

Hey. I'm a new user to Linux and not very good at it yet, and just wanted to say thanks and tell you how much your guide helped me. WOW is running amazingly for me, better than I remember it running on Windows when I played last a couple of months ago.

I did want to mention though that if you try to add the wft/config.wtf file before you run the game, it will get overwritten. I didn't know that and had some problems with the game that I didn't solve until I completely reread the guide and saw that it said to add the lines to the file.

In case anyone else is in the same boat, you need to re-edit your config.wtf file if you have no sound, your normal mouse cursor is displayed over your WOW cursor, and your GUI action bar/bag icons are messed up or not appearing.

The best I can do I to offer a workaround. Do this:

Right click the panel -> choose "propeties" -> enable "Show hide buttons" -> disable "Arrow on hide buttons" -> close

Now you can press the little marker on the edge of the panel, which will make it minimize into the corner, and only the little marker will show. Better than nothing :-|

Well I am reposting my weird problem, see if anyone can help me. I can run WOW no problem in edgy, no framerate problems, nothing wrong there but only for a short amount of time. Here is some problems I am getting...

1. The game crashes my system whenever I play it more than 30 minutes (it is always a random amount time but just crashes and I have to reboot the machine) and d3d doesn't work but opengl works great except for the damn crashes I got a mobility radeon 9700 with latest drivers.

2. The Video Options don't work (if I change settings the game shuts off and reverts back to original settings), no biggie here I just want my first problem to go away.

Sammi
February 5th, 2007, 11:52 AM
I have no idea about no. 1, but no. 2 is a common problem. The workaround is to launch the game in d3d mode, which should work just well enough so you can change the settings. Then launch it in opengl mode again as usual.

Hm. I seem to have a unique problem. The installer won't let me hotswap the CDs, so short of literally forcing the drive open I'm not able to progress past installing the contents of disc 1, which naturally sucks. :/

I also tried to start the installation from another CD, and here the system allowed me to swap disks. It would seem then that the problem is with the window showing the installation progress.

Trying to manually unmount the CD produces an error saying the drive is "busy" when it clearly isn't, which seems to be the root of the problem.

I'm using Wine v0.9.30 here. Seeing as this looks like a very uncommon problem, I may be out of luck here. Help please, I really don't want to have to fork out for Windows if I don't need to. D:

I'm aware that's an option, but it's not really feasible on this poor connection: I'm lucky if I get 5KB/s out of it. Besides, I didn't go out and buy the game today only to have to download it anyway. D:

As much as anything else, I'm worried that this error hints at a more serious problem that has gone unnoticed - a particular DVD I have has a hard time when I want to copy files from it (it's a backup disc :P) and the copied files invariably end up corrupt.

I assumed that there was simply something wrong with the DVD but perhaps it's the player itself. :/

Thanks for reminding me of that other option, but I want to make sure this gets fixed, because it's such an odd problem.

EDIT: Aha! From Cedega's website: (oh the irony :P)


# Some users may have problems switching cd's during the install. Simply copy the contents of all cd's to a single location on the hard drive and install from there.

I had WoW running extremely well and all of a sudden it's horrible. Here's what I've tried so far.

I removed Beryl just in case.
I was messing with XMMS and Amarok 3d visualizations so I removed them.

After that I figured that since I had done very little to this installation I'd reload. Well for some reason WoW is still running horribly. I'm getting anywhere from 20-70 fps without AA. When it's around 70 it's ok until you swing the camera at which point it stutters.

I'm not sure what's up since WoW was running smoothly before with Beryl on and down right fast with Beryl disabled. I was really hoping to find a simple solution since the network latency in Ubuntu is easily 1/2 of what I get in Windows.

Any ideas?

Reinstall your graphics drivers. Try both the stable and the beta Nvidia drivers.

Try the Envy script version 8.1 for the installation: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

You should take very good care to backup your xorg.conf before you begin. Messing with graphics card drivers is always messy :p

Sammi-

I apologize in advance if these things have been brought up earlier in this thread but I did not see these things on the official How-To, so I thought I would bring them up. I have a Lenovo Thinkpad z61m laptop with a core duo processor, 1gb of ram and an ATI x1400 radeon mobility graphics card and am quite new to the linux environment. After I figured out the fglrx installation process I installed Wine and WoW following your directions and had some success, but my whole system kept freezing as I entered the world following character selection. I thought it was a video driver problem and tried a number of things until I found a couple of threads in the transgaming.org forums that I thought might be useful additions to your how-to page as an ATI specific troubleshoot. First try installing an add-on called"ApplyToForehead", found here:

http://www.wowace.com/files/ApplyToForehead/ApplyToForehead-r19476.zip

which allows you to change your video settings in opengl without having the game crash. This add-on has really stabilized the performance of the game for me.


The other thing you can try, the thing I tried first, is to run dmesg in terminal, which revealed a series of fglrx errors relating to my the root kernel, and add a bit of code to my xorg.conf file under my ATI device configuration section if you see fglrx errors as well:


Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"


This seemed to deal with the error and WoW would now load without freezing the whole system, but the game was still very laggy and slow and I could not change video settings without having the game crash. So I found the post that listed the add-on for the game and installed that. The add-on seems to have a much stronger effect than the patch, and since the patch seems to limit the performance of my video card I removed the code patch and the game runs great (maybe better) with just the add-on. I have not had a chance to test it much without the code however. At any rate WoW is now running on my Ubuntu laptop as smoothly as it runs on my buddy's windows machine. I don't know how to post directly to the How-To wiki, if you tell me how to do that I will take the time to update the How-To for you. Thanks again for setting up a current How To and thanks for taking the time to help this NooB find his way around Ubuntu.

jameslov
February 7th, 2007, 07:48 PM
Two quick things I forgot:

don't forget to turn on the Add-On in WoW at the character screen, even though it says out of date (check load out of date add-ons)

Once you get into the game and CAN change video settings, turn off the "Full-Screen Glow Effect" for significantly improved performance.

I will continue to play-test with the add-on and no code patch to make sure the patch is all that is needed and remove that section from my other post if this is the case so as not to confuse everyone. Stay Tuned

Cheers

After a bit of quick testing (I loaded closed loaded closed the game a couple of times) I got a system lockup again without the xorg.conf code patch, so it appears that you do need to implement that as well. I would edit one of my two earlier posts, but the option has disappeared for some reason (these are my first 3 posts). Will continue to test with the patch and add-on, have not yet had the combination lock up my system.

Hi, I'm also having some trouble with the error message "World of Warcraft was unable to start 3D acceleration" when I try to open it in OpenGL mode. When I open it in D3D, my UI renders, but everything else is blackscreened.

I copied over the folders from an existing Windows partition and have the latest NVidia drivers. However, when I do the glxinfo tests, direct rendering is not enabled. How do I fix this? Here's the copy of my glxinfo tests:

Ok, I've really done it now.

I've always thought that I knew just enough about computers to get myself in trouble, but I've been lucky so far...well, not anymore. While trying to fix this graphics card situation, X has stopped working for me altogether (having to use my Windows partition to post this). I noticed that my direct rendering was saying no, and saw in the Wine tutorials that this meant the video card wasn't set up properly. So I revisited the Ubuntu help section on 3D graphic cards (https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/graphics-cards.html) to try and fix the drivers. I made sure that I had the latest version of nvidia-glx, and I did. And then I tried to configure it using this command: sudo nvidia-glx-config enable.

That seemed to work and the terminal told me to restart X. I did, and got an error message saying that X failed to load. The log file had this to say"



(==) Logfile: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Wed Feb 7 14:11:24 2007
(==) Using config file:"/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(ww) NV: No matching device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:0) found
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal server error:
no screens found
X10: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X Server ":00" after 0 requests (0 known processes) with 0 events remaining


When I did the nvidia-glx-config, I know it made a backup of my xorg.conf file... but how do I find that backup and restore to it? That's one way I can think of to fix this... but I'm lost at coming up with any other options.

Help please, if possible. :)

I can't tell you how many times I've seen that error message on my screen :D

You seem to be desperate, so I'm gonna recommend that you try Envy. It's a Nvidia and ATI driver installation script made by a user of this forum with the nick "tseliot" and real name "Alberto Milone".
More info here: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

To install and run it you just have to do these three commands in the command prompt:

wget http://albertomilone.com/ubuntu/nvidia/scripts/envy_0.8.1-0ubuntu6_all.deb
sudo apt-get install envy*
envymaybe the last line needs to have "sudo" in front, but try it without first.

It hasn't let me down yet and I hope it will help you.

For those of you implementing the OpenGL registry tweak with Regedit and are having trouble renaming New Key # 1 (ie you right click, select rename or press F2 and nothing happens), try resizing the left column so that it is half the screen instead of 1/4. This will let you rename it, which is much easier than importing a reg file. I also had this problem and after searching through many forums my understanding is that there is a Wine bug that causes this issue. Hope this helps.

Hi!
I think my WoW is running great with (much better that with Cedega BTW). I have two 7600GT tha i use in SLI and Ubuntu 6.10. I use wine-0.9.30

When i launch WoW form a term i can see

fixme:wgl:X11DRV_wglQueryPbufferARB unsupported WGL_PBUFFER_LOST_ARB (need glXSelectEvent/GLX_DAMAGED work) again and again.

Is this something i should try to fix ?

Thanks =)

Ok, thanks Sammi. Was able to get X working once again.

But I'm still having the same issue with direct rendering = no. I believe I understand what the problem is, so let me explain the situation a bit. I can start up ubuntu in a default gnome session and have direct rendering = yes... in this session, WoW plays beautifully. If I start in an Xgl session with Bery, I get direct rendering = no, and WoW doesn't play at all. If I'm going to have to switch sessions to play WoW, I can live with it, but is there a way to make WoW work within an Xgl session and Beryl running?

Bealer
February 9th, 2007, 01:26 AM
I'm not able to get Warcraft working :(

My setup is an ATI X1950, I'm using Edgy with the fglrx drivers. Direct rendering is enabled when running "glxinfo | grep direct", and it's using the correct drivers when running "fglrxinfo". I was previously using Beryl/XGL, but have since removed it and am currently in the default Metacity session.

I've also configured Wine to run Wow.exe as a Windows XP app. And I've added the below to my Wow config:


SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
SET SoundBufferSize "100"
SET gxApi "opengl"
SET gxWindow "1"
SET specular "0"
SET ffx "0"
SET pixelShaders "0"
SET movie "0"
SET ffxDeath "0"

But when trying to run Wow, I get the following:

Anyone got any ideas?

Why on earth would you want to fix something that works?


@scottness
You were using Xgl ?!?!?! #-oHehehe... sometimes the most obvious is just too obvious :lolflag:
Xgl doesn't work very well with 3d, but Aiglx does. I think you need the beta nvidia drivers for it, but you could try it in stead if your up for it: http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Install_Beryl_on_Ubuntu
I've got the beta drivers myself and Beryl/aiglx. I don't run WoW with Beryl active though, as it gives unneeded overhead and just makes the desktop less stable. Beryl is very easy to start/stop, you just switch between Beryl and Metacity using Beryl's system tray icon.

For some reason when I use that tweak, after playing for a while, my framerate drops to below 10fps, and wow becomes beyond unplayable. Anyone have a clue why it might be doing this? Without the regedit tweak, the game runs around 20-25 fps, and is playable. But when I add the tweak to regedit, the game jumps to about 35fps and runs better than it does in windows, but like I said, after a while it becomes unplayable all of a sudden.

I have an nvidia geforce go 6400, with the nvidia drivers installed.

February 9th, 2007, 10:56 AM
I think have figured out the problem I have been having.

I suspect it may be due to lack of hardware 3d accel (I believe that my card is based on the 200 ati series which doesn't currently support hardware 3d accel). Hopefuly in the future ati fixes the driver to allow it to use hardware accel

In facts i have a big issue, really borring, huge slowdowns when i turn :( If i'm running my FPS is around 50-60 sometimes it's even higher, if i turn, it can drop to 20... which is anoying, you feel a like a freeze during 2 seconds. In instances no probs, i made several Kharazan without having any issues. I run the game in Opengl.

I notice a really bad FPS with GLXGEARS if i let the window on my screen i have around 5000 fps, if i minimize the windows it's 11000 fps. I know it's not e benchmark but maybe it'es something i should alert me.

Please if you have any idea for my wow problem reply :)

My config is AMD 64 4000+ oc

You should just try to play around with your video settings inside WoW. There may be something that doesn't run very well on your particular machine. Shaders are usually the most "shady" ones, so try changing your shader settings :p

I don't have much clue, but I get the same turning slowdown in Windows and Linux, looks more like a WoW issue than anything else. It only happens when I use the arrow keys though, disk freezes for a bit for some unknown reason (because if I turn with the mouse it doesn't do that) and FPS go down for about 2-5 secs, then it works cool until I stop using the arrow keys for some time, and if I try again, the issue appears again.

Toto3310
February 12th, 2007, 02:46 AM
I ran some tests, lot of differents things, and i realized that when SLI was off, the average FPS under wow seems to be quiet the same, but the slowdowns disappear..

Today i think that in Linux i can reach better FPS in some litle close Area than in Windows, i think in instances (i only test 5 men et 10men instances) it's quiet the same; and in the big new Areas of BC, it's sometime better, sometime (really) not.

I think wow under Wine or even Cedega have problems with offscreen rendering. For example in Kharazan in the beginning of the instance you have huge stairs which led you to a room full of mobs (and i mean really a lot of mobs in a really big room)if you look to position of mobs, even if you can't see them, your FPS begin to decrease, you turn and everything is going back to normal. I think this problem happen even in Windows but is more obvious under linux in openGL.

But i know that some people have slowdowns when they turn their character without having SLI, as you DARKguy, i hope i'll never have this problem again :P

And know what should i do off my second graphic card ? Could i plug an other screen, and if my both screen are handle by two different cards, i'll should not have some FPS-loss when i play ? (Yes it's quiet important for me i like to play in very decent condition... because i play a lot... who said too much ? :D )

I should try that but if you have some advices, before i go look for my heavy CRT, it would be very nice for my back :P

And sorry for my English.

Is it normal to have to accept the 2 the terms every time you start wow? Also how can i adjust the resolution for wow out of the game because when i try to use the interface to adjust it wow shuts down. Also why do are all the pictures on my UI missing or screwed up and how do i fix it?

jameslov
February 12th, 2007, 09:29 PM
If you try to adjust the video settings and the game crashes, try installing the add-on called "ApplyToForehead", found here:

http://www.wowace.com/files/ApplyToF...ead-r19476.zip

This add-on fixes several linux-specific issues in World of Warcraft.

February 12th, 2007, 10:18 PM
Reinstall your graphics drivers. Try both the stable and the beta Nvidia drivers.

Thanks for the advice but there was no difference. For the time being I'm back to running WoW in XP. 62 avg fps in 1680x1050 with all options on + 4x Transparency AA.

Linux was running all over the place (18-50) fps in 1680x1050 with no AA. It runs well enough while running straight ahead but the moment I turn/swing the camera the framerate hitches like crazy.

Guess I can't do a total switch just yet. :(

Sammi

@Moffett
Yes that EULA keeps showing up twice every time a small update is applied to WoW. It's very annoying for everybody.

Are you sure you're running in OpenGL mode? Are your sure your video card drivers are updated and working? Have you tried using alsa-oss, as the howto describes, for sound? Can you copy/paste the text output from the terminal when WoW quits on you, so we can examine it?

@bankie
Sorry to hear it. I haven't experienced what you're going through. For more advanced tips and instructions you should use Wine's official WoW howto and forum page: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=6482

@jameslov
Thanks for that tip. I'm gonna add it to the howto. Although you could do it yourself :rolleyes:

You need to forward your ports from your router. See here for info and instructions:

I'm also working on getting wow to run. I read the howto, and I think I did everything correctly:

added the .dll files
updated config.wtf
reinstalled nvidia drivers
tried running wow as d3d with the corresponding changes to Config.wtf

anything i missed?

well, the problem is that when i log in to the game (playing, not to my account) the blue loading bar gets about 3/4 of the way, then the program exits.
what might be causing this? would the log from the terminal during the execution help?

A little question.
The script in Tweak 2:

(This is how I had to do it to get it working without flaws:

#!/bin/sh

X :3 -ac & # Launches a new X session on display 3
cd /home/serfi/c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/ # Goto WoW dir
#cd "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft" # Goto WoW dir/disabled
sleep 2 # Forces the system to have a break for 2 seconds
DISPLAY=:3 wine /home/serfi/c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe -opengl # Launches WoW

Anyway, that was not the point... My question is:

Is it possible to deside what resolution that X windows will start in? I would like to "force" it to start up in 1024x768... and not 1600x1200 as it does default.

The icon problem is usually fixed with the "SET UIFaster" parameter in config.wtf

Use it like this:

Set UIFaster “x”

Where x equals:

0 – This turns off all UI acceleration
1 – For Internal Use Only - DO NOT USE!
2 – Enables partial UI acceleration only.
3 – Enables all UI acceleration.

Example:

Set UIFaster “2”

The value 2 usually corrects this problem.

Hey, thanks for the tutorial. I am a bit of a newb so go easy.
My problem is as follows:
I followed your tutorial and installed wine and configed the sound.

I had installed WoW on an external hdd so I copied it into my home dir ~/World of Warcraft/. From that point I decieded to launch it and it worked fine could log in and everything, of course I wasn't completely patched so it started to use the BlizzTorrent downloader which was fine but when it tried to install the patch it gave me and error.
"Sorry the installer was unable to start up. You may be out hard drive space." Gah. I have no space issues, 500gb drive and all thats on here is the fresh copy of ubuntu.
So then I thought maybe it needs to me in my drive_c dir under wine so I tried
sudo cp ~/World\ of\ Warcraft\ ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/ which returns
cp: omitting directory '~/World\ of\ Warcraft\'
Then I decided maybe a fresh install would be better so I copy my cds and begin installation. The install process had no problems and I then had World of Warcraft in my drive_c/program files/.
I then ran it and firstly the background (the gate to the outlands) was not there it was just a black screen with the login boxes and the realm notices. After I attempt to log in it says that the patch failed to install and I might need to reinstall my game. I had copies of the patches on my hdd so I tried to cp them over and run them but I get the same out of hard drive space error.
At this point I don't know much else to try. It seems like some sort of permission error; I recall getting another error from [wineserver] about not having permissions but I am not entirely sure how to reproduce the error. If you need any file information just post I am not sure which file's innards would be apt in this case, thanks for you help.

EDIT
I'll leave this up incase anyone has the same problem, for whatever reason, i did not have permission to the drive_c folder so i just did a recursive chown and it seems to be working out, thanks for the guide

Okay, I know this problem has been posted before, but the answers went way over my head.

When I start WoW, I get a popup box that reads: "World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration. Please make sure DirectX 9.0c is installed and your video drivers are up-to-date." What should my course of action be?

loclarkey,

When you run WoW make sure you use the -opengl flag. For exmaple I run:


wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe -opengl


Your path may be different depending on where you have it installed.

Make sure you're not running xgl. What make is your video card?

i reinstalled everything on my computer. i followed the tip to improve the fps but when i was in the regedit directory and made the new key i was unable to rename new key #1 to OpenGL i did everything else as it described. now world of warcraft wont launch and i think it has something to do with the not being able to rename the key. I went to try and undo everything that i had done but now if i type regedit in the terminal i get the following
jon@jon:~$ regedit
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x136
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 15

So now what do i do

P.S. this is what i get when i try to run wow through the terminal
jon@jon:~$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe

Sammi - again, sincere thanks for your patience. My video card is nVidia Corporation NV34M [GeForce FX Go5200] (rev a1).
When I use the command wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe -opengl (which is the correct directory, etc.), the screen flickers back and forth to a lower resolution a few times and then a pop-up box displays: "World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3d acceleration."

Also, I expect this is related: when I run that command, I get a number of startup errors in the terminal which, condensed, say
1. ..."No libGL on this box - disabling OpenGL support !"
2. "Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"."
3. "err:wgl:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo couldn't initialize OpenGL, expect problems"

You don't have your nvidia drivers properly installed. I'd suggest dealing with that first before you tackle WoW. This link (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=301499) might prove helpful.

Thanks for that tip. I'm gonna add it to the howto. Although you could do it yourself

I'd be happy to.... but I don't know how (This is the first forum I've ever joined). Could you give me a link that explains how to add to the wikis? I would also like to add a code snippet that helped me fix my fglrx settings so my computer stopped hard locking when I started the game. Thanks!

I went ahead and added info on the ApplyToForehead addon myself, but you can still add whatever you like, like for example that ATI xorg.conf fix you found somewhere else.

Editing this howto is as easy as hitting "edit" and signing up for an account.

Update: I installed and (I think) configured my nvidia drivers correctly. I can now run the game using the -d3d option. The only two problems are that my framerate goes way down when I try to turn in-game and that my buffs and spells icons are corrupted. Strangely, the turning effect doesn't happen inside buildings; only in large areas. It's playable though.

Sammi
February 16th, 2007, 12:41 PM
There's is a fix for the icon problem in the howto's troubleshooting section. I didn't know Nvidia users suffer from this problem too.

sorry if the ApplyToForehead link didn't work..... it worked for me as recently as a week ago. Try this repository, I think it is the "official" home of the add-on:

http://files.wowace.com/ApplyToForehead/no-ext/

I will try to change the link in the how-to wiki later.

Well, I followed the steps but I copied WoW from my NTFS partition and didn't copy the patch exe's I figured they weren't important with a patched version. Permissions seem fine though.

I haven't done the "almost required" trick because the game doesn't even start in either d3d or opengl. I have a X1400 video card with the drivers compiled by myself. All that wow gives me is:
"World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D acceleration."

This is the output from -opengl flag:

Greetings People,
1st of all I would like to say that you guys rock.
I'm reading since days in this forum and what can I say, my Edgy runs awesome on my AMD 64 3200+.
I installed the Nvidia driver 96xx for my 4200 TI Geforce8, Beryl and I can even sync my PDA with Kontact, everything runs without a problem.
The only thing who just won't run is my WoW (BC). I'm soooo close to get rid of Microsoft, PLEASE HELP.
I don;t no what else to try.
I installed the newest Wine application, simce to run fine and did all the succested tweaks.
I copied everything from my World of Warcraft (BC)Folder on my Microsoft partion to Ubuntu, changed the permissions, load down the dll's and when I try to start WoW over a Terminal thats the dump and nothing else happen.

Could you guys give me a hand on that, PLEASE ?!

Thats the command: wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe
Thats the dump:

I really am no expert on Wine, but these two lines from your error dump seem to say that you don't have write permission to your WoW files/directory, even though you said you did change the permissions:

wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x00000000 at address 0x7c231318 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x7c231318).You should at least doble and triple check if you have proper read/write permission to all the files in your WoW directory. Maybe root is set as the owner of the files/directories, if so then you need to change it to your login user. You need root privileges in a nautilus window to do this, and you can get them with this command "gksu nautilus".

Hi there!

I've recently installed Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake) and REALLY love it. I've never used Linux before, but switched after I got fed up with how Microsoft is handling their operating systems.

I used the Ubuntu wiki to help me install my ATI Radeon 9600's drivers using the Xorg package after installing the operating system. This fixed my UXGA LCD's screen resolution problem (Ubuntu wouldn't let me switch to 1440x900 from 1024x760). After that, I added code to my xorg.conf file to create a desktop of size 2880x1800 to use my 2nd monitor.

In an attempt to test my graphics card out in Linux, I installed Wine (including the dev files). Using the Ubuntu wiki again, I installed World of WarCraft and the Burning Crusade expansion pack. The game appears to work fine, minus a few issues that make it unplayable. The issues are as follows (in as much detail as I can muster):

1. The game freezes my entire computer and forces me to reboot completely in one of two spots. The game either freezes after I get to the point where the buttons and login boxes should show up on the title screen (it loads fine and then locks up at the exact point the stuff is supposed to load - the stuff never loads and I have to restart), or once I log in and attempt to choose a character. I have found no pattern to these lock ups whatsoever. I read a post on the transgaming forums that advised me to add the following to my xorg.conf file, which I did:


Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]"
Driver "fglrx"
Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"
EndSection

The original thread may be found here (http://transgaming.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6341). I thought this had solved the problem, because I was able to get into the game for the first time ever after making this change. Unfortunately, upon logging out, closing WoW, and attempting to log back in, it froze yet again.

2. In the random event that I am able to get into the game successfully (thrice so far), I cannot change my video options without the game crashing completely. I specifically wanted to make the game run in a window, just in case that might solve problem #1. I read somewhere that WoW crashes when using OpenGL and attempting to change video options and that a workaround for the problem has been to start the game in D3D mode instead.

3. WoW freezes without fail if D3D is used just like I'd detailed in problem #1. I've never been able to get to a logon screen at all.

As a final side note, I have applied the registry change to add an OpenGL key and string to the Wine registry as detailed in the Ubuntu wiki instructions for installing World of WarCraft. I have also edited my WoW configuration file to reflect the changes described in Tweak #2 on that page. These have improved WoW's performance, but have not resolved the 3 problems detailed above.

If any more information is needed, please detail what exactly is needed and I'll see if I can get it. As I said, I've never used Linux, so I'm not quite used to running lots of commands to test things. On Windows, you just kinda changed program settings and rebooted to see if you'd made things better or worse - that's the kind of debugging I'm used to. :p

Thanks again! :)

EDIT: I've added the following code to my config.wtf file, which forced WoW to run in windowed mode and fixed my problem with having to reboot completely:


SET gxWindow "1"

That should take care of problem 1, mentioned below. Problems 2 and 3 still persist (I don't think there's a way to fix problem 2 at the moment - it's been listed as a bug a lot of places I've searched for info on it), however, and I'd like to know if there's a way to fix them or not still.

Thanks!

Just a quick post to report that I followed the howto instuctions and everything works fine (including BC) on a Dell Latitude D810 (ATI fix applied).

Thanks to all of the contributors to the howto.

Sammi, theres a problem with the eigth step! And possibly a fatal one, World of Warcraft has an antihack program called Warden built into it, since most bots and hacks need to make some changes to the client Warden looks out for any changes at all to any of the files, and adding 3 lines to something isn't hard to miss, personally I would not feel safe doing that to my file without emailing blizzard first at least.

I am also quite new to linux and have faced a similar learning curve in regards to using the terminal and playing with coded settings. It is a little daunting to have to edit settings in a text editor instead of using windows style "options" or "preferences" menus. I think once you get used to it and gain a little confidence you will find you really like the level of control linux gives you over the way your operating system works. In regards to your post, there are several commands you can run to make sure that your video drivers are installed properly. open a terminal and run the command


fglrxinfo

and you should see something like this:


display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6011 (8.28.8)


Then run


glxinfo | grep render

and you should see something like this:


direct rendering: Yes
GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Generic


If you results referring to mesa drivers, say that direct rendering is not on or some other kind of output, post them on the forum.

Also check your xorg.conf file again. Make sure that you type


sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

paying attention to the case of the letters (the X in X11 is capitalized). When I first ran this command I got a blank file and couldn't figure out WHAT was going on. Before you change anything however, make sure you make a backup of it by saving it as xorg.conf_backup, then reopen xorg.conf. Always back it up before you make changes. If you ever get stuck in command line (ie. X won't open and all you can do is type commands) type


sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup

Then hit ctrl o and save the output as xorg.conf to overwrite the damaged driver file.

Your ATI device section should be more detailed that what you posted I think, for instance mine looks like this:


Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Radeon x1400"
Driver "fglrx"
Option "ForceMonitors" "lvds,crt1"
Option "Centermode" "off"
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
Option "OverlayOnCRTC2" "0"
Option "PseudoColorVisuals" "off"
Option "HSync2" "31-64"
Option "VRefresh2" "56-75"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

You can see that I also have the fix suggested on the transgaming.org forum, I needed it to stop my computer from freezing as well. I would recommend that you don't simply copy this section since your BusID, VRefresh rate and HSync might be different.

Make sure that you have a section called "Module" that looks something like this:


Section "Module"
Load "GLcore"
Load "bitmap"
Load "dbe"
Load "ddc"
Load "dri"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "int10"
Load "type1"
Load "v4l"
Load "vbe"
EndSection

This one you probably could copy, loading them all on my computer doesn't seem to have any detrimental effects.

As far as your post about the game freezing when you try to change video settings, you will find in the troubleshooting part of the wiki and in an earlier post of mine a short section about an add on called ApplyToForehead which will allow you to change graphics settings in opengl. Make sure you have it installed in the addon folder in WoW and turned on properly before you enter the game. Ok this is a long post, hope it helps you.

@Memonas
You're quite a paranoia freak aren't you? :D

This is maybe a bit hard to explain...

You have to understand that config.wtf is indeed a text edit config file. It's made by Blizzard to be edited by hand by the gamers. My guess is that Blizzard made it to be a fail safe, if changing settings through the graphical user interface(GUI) in game, doesn't work. Otherwise they could just have stored all the settings values in a binary file that would not be readable or editable by us.

To my best knowledge you can not input any data or values in to this file, which would put you in breach of the WoW EULA, and specifically those three lines you are asked to input are 100% harmless. They only specify how large the sound buffer should be, what sound architecture to use, and to use opengl for 3d rendering. All very legal things to do, so don't worry :D

Also the sheer number of Linux users who edit their config.wtf files manually without problems, speaks for it self. Even Mac and Windows users get to edit their config.wtf in peace. And at last, I really don't see how "Warden" could be able to tell between what lines have been put in by the game it self, and which lines have been put in manually but one self, because the lines a exactly the same.

To change your settings under OpenGL, download and install this mod (you may need to enable out of date addons in WoW): http://files.wowace.com/ApplyToForehead/no-ext/ApplyToForehead-r19476.zip
This will prevent WoW from making immediate changes to your graphics settings (they will be applied the next time you run WoW instead).

Sammi
February 20th, 2007, 11:53 PM
(they will be applied the next time you run WoW instead).
Actually if you found that little bit of info in the howto, I'm a bit afraid that I might have just made it up. Well in fact I did believe it did work the way you describe, the first time I used the addon, but after using it some more I found out that settings are actually applied immediately, and that I was unable to change the settings for screen resolution and vertical sync.

I then looked through the code of the addon and found only three lines:

SetMultisampleFormat = function() end
SetScreenResolution = function() end
RestartGx = function() endThere was even another file in the addon's directory where I found this descriptive line:

## Notes: This small addon will kill three functions, which crashes the WoW client when changing graphical settings under Linux.I'm not 100% sure what these three functions are, as I have little or no programming knowledge, but looking at the three lines of code I'm pretty damn sure that they're killing one functions each and that changing resolution is one of them.

Anybody with lua programming experience know what the other two are?

Thanks a lot Sammi,

Just a FYI

You brought me on the right track.
I actually tried to copy the whole WoW folder from my Window.
That didn't quite work out. Even I checked and verified the access rights again.
NOTHING.

So I started back from scratch after i deleted the copied folder.
Followed the How to for the wine hq installation, doppelchecked my Nvidia driver installation and checked the settings.
Installed WoW over wine hq without a problem, installed the MS drivers for
tweak #1, started the game, run several updates from WoW. Fantastic, everything runs.

Downloaded the slim installer for "Burning Crusade".
So far so good, now, where I tried to run the installer over wine my only problem began.
The screen poped up for the "BC" installation, but I could not start it, hmmmm.
I tried everything: Screensettings, different kind of Wine settings, checked the access right, nothing.
I restarted Ubuntu, and just as I thought "that's my last try". :lolflag:
The installer of "BC" started without a problem, like nothing happend before.
"BC" got installed , loged in, made 2 other updates.
and it's running ever since.

Awesome, I think that was the last reason, to stay with MS. Problem solved.

Again, you guys rock

February 21st, 2007, 12:28 AM
I'm very happy it worked for you :D

Unfortunately some of us need to be a bit stubborn to get WoW to run properly with Wine. I had troubles too at first, and I've hit new problems as I've changed hardware and newer versions of both WoW and Wine brought both new bugs and fixes. I was looking for a way to "give back" to Ubuntu, as Ubuntu gave me so much, and for me this all became so interesting that I decided that I could write about it, so I started updating the howto with my new knowledge that I mostly found in other peoples posts :mrgreen:

I've even come to think of myself as a maintainer of the howto, though I don't in any way think of the howto as my own, or of myself as an expert on this subject. I just love being a part of a community, where people help each other make things work. God bless the ubuntuforums.org :KS

Most people have probably already done this, but a small step missing from the howto is, installing the MS Fonts.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Microsoft_Fonts

Before installing them, my WoW installation menus all had a teeeeny tiny little line of gibberish text on the buttons. It was sorta 50/50 if I was "accepting" or "declining" the installation agreement. Or pressing "play" or "upgrade", etc.

(If this has already been brought up I apologize - and freely admit that I only skimmed through about 10 of the 20 pages of this post! )

Excellent how to. Thank you for maintaining it!

I've noticed that the fix for the hanging issue on ATI makes Xgl hang.


Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"


Why is that? Is it possible to have this where I don't have to modify my xorg.conf everytime I want to play WoW? :(

February 24th, 2007, 04:58 PM
@zami

Thx for the input. I've updated both the op and the howto thanks to you ;)

I actually have noticed that the wtf directory is with small letters and Config.wtf starts with a capitalized letter before, and I went through the whole howto to correct this. I just oversaw the op #-o



Anyway, is there really noone who knows enough lua scripting to tell me what those three lines do?

SetMultisampleFormat = function() end
SetScreenResolution = function() end
RestartGx = function() end

Your problem seems so ATI'ish :/

Try updating the graphics card driver: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html (no promises and be careful - backup your xorg.conf file before you begin)

Also how much ram and what cpu do you have?

I've discovered that whenever there's a code change in my system, either because wine or fglrx updates, or WoW pushes a new patch to me, the system will lock up just before it loads the fields to enter my account name and password. Then, if I leave it alone overnight it will magically work again. No amount of tweaking my xorg.conf, rebooting or rerunning winecfg appears to change this behavior.

However, you folks have pointed out some new tricks that I've applied without success, so I'm hoping we can delve a little deeper and obtain a little more information. So here goes.

The frustrating part for me is that the system fixes itself after a while even if I don't touch it. So I'm thoroughly stumped. If someone has any ideas or needs additional information, please let me know. This is Kubuntu 6.10 on a T42 with 2GB of system RAM.

I have WoW working under wine. However, the graphics are like this.

link (http://www.instantimagehosting.com/storage/Untitled_1.jpg)

and very low fps.

i have ati radeon 9600.
this is my config.wtf:

any ideas?

For one you are running in DirectX mode because you havn't added this line to Config.wtf, as the howto instructs you to do:

SET gxApi "OpenGL"You really should try adding that line first.

Secondly you could try the panel icon trick also found in the howto. It's in the troubleshooting section:

If you experience corrupt icons on your panel then you then you may need to set the SET UIFaster parameter in wtf/Config.wtf
Use it like this:
Set UIFaster “x”
Where x equals:
0 – This turns off all UI acceleration
1 – For Internal Use Only - DO NOT USE!
2 – Enables partial UI acceleration only.
3 – Enables all UI acceleration.
Example:
Set UIFaster “2”
The value 2 usually corrects this problem.Thirdly the howto's troubleshooting section also has a tip about adding three lines to xorg.conf. You could try that.

And number four you should check that you are running the newest of the proprietary ATI drivers, as the open source ones aren't very good for 3d or games: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI

I cannot run in OpenGL mode.. only Direct3D mode. When I try to use OpenGL, the program will crash with the usual WoW crash/error report.

I'm using an integrated intel chipset and it supports (and has enabled) direct rendering.

Any help is appreciated :-)

March 1st, 2007, 11:39 PM
The set UI Faster line solved my icons problem. I still can't see my own character and it's icon that's on top of the screen, but i think that's related to my inability of using OpenGl.

When i add the line

SET gxApi "OpenGL"
the game quits just after the loading screen. here's the error message i get on the terminal:


X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 13 (X_GLXCreateGLXPixmap)

any idea what's wrong?

March 1st, 2007, 11:55 PM
Have you tried adding those three lines to the device section of your xorg.conf file as the troubleshooting section instructs?

Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0" jameslov did a great job of explaining how to do this a little while back in this tread. See post number 185: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2183925&postcount=185 (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2183925&postcount=185)

Quick question, I have WoW installed with the latest wine on Feisty it runs great except for one thing. The mouse is unresponsive sometimes. I have the latest Nvidia drivers also. Followed the howto and have looked all over for a possible answer. Switched to wine since cedega takes forever to launch WoW.

I got Warcraft running (almost) pretty well on here by following the instructions (which were great!) However when I go from the "pick character" screen into the actual game it errors out and shows me the following message.



This application encountered a critical error:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
Program C:\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe
Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 0073.00000000

The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000"
This memory could not be "read".

Press OK to terminate the application

This sure sounds like its probably something easy and dumb that I missed, but if someone who knows what that means could tell me how to rectify the situation I'd be very grateful.

Please read the troubleshooting section of the howto. There's a fix for a similar problem that ATI card users are experiencing involving adding three lines to xorg.conf.

alican timur
March 2nd, 2007, 10:19 PM
Then run


glxinfo | grep render

and you should see something like this:


direct rendering: Yes
GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Generic


i get:



bash: grep: command not found


?..

Sammi
March 2nd, 2007, 10:23 PM
No grep? This I do not understand. Isn't it a standard command in Linux? Isn't it installed in Ubuntu by default?

You could just write 'glxinfo' and then look through the whole output that that command gives you manually. You should look for a line similar to this:

direct rendering: Yes

alican timur
March 2nd, 2007, 10:46 PM

alican timur please answer yes or no to the following question:

Have you added these three lines to the device section of your xorg.conf file:

Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"

:confused:

Aricml
March 3rd, 2007, 04:41 AM
@ Sammi

Unfortunately I'm using an NVIDIA graphics card and do not have a xorg.conf in the ATI section.


#

For users with an ATI video card: certain cards have trouble rendering games and video in opengl using current flgrx drivers which will cause your computer to hard locks when you attempt to enter a domain. This error will occur just after character creation/selection, as the game environment is loading, or possibly after a short period of play. In order to fix this error, add the following lines of code to your xorg.conf file in the ATI device section:

Option "Capabilities" "0x00000800"
Option "UseFastTLS" "off"
Option "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"



While I do greatly appreciate your help, is there a possible solution you know of that is not ATI specific?

-Aric

alican timur
March 3rd, 2007, 10:48 AM
okay. first of all, where i should see this:


direct rendering: Yes
GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Generic

i get:


direct rendering: Yes
GLX_ATI_render_texture
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9600 Generic

in my "grep | render" pixel_format_float part is missing.

it says


If you results referring to mesa drivers, say that direct rendering is not on or some other kind of output, post them on the forum.

so i posted it here.
and about my xorg.conf file, here is the whole thing. yes, i have added those lines.

Nvidia users don't usually suffer from that error, if the drivers are correctly installed and updated. Try a driver reinstall. I find the Envy script to be excellent for this: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html
If you want to use the script, then you need to remove the Nvidia driver in Synaptic first.

@alican timur
You have direct rendering. Great.

I am no expert in xorg.conf configuration. However I do think that your xorg.conf is scrambled, because there are a lot of double entries. Are you running two monitors or something?

This command brings up a UI that guides you through reconfigurating you xorg.conf from scratch:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorgBut be very sure to back up the filre first:

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

hey there. I'm so sorry to bother you again and again, but i reconfigured the xorg.conf file with the ui you posted above, but WoW still shuts itself down just after the loading screen.
i get this error on the terminal:


X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 13 (X_GLXCreateGLXPixmap)
Serial number of failed request: 463
Current serial number in output stream: 464

i know i don't know anything about it, but since the difference between the grep | render response in the tutorial and the response i get in my computer was the statement


GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float

i seriously think there's a problem about pixels and glx (whatever they signify). i appr. your help very much. can you please look into this again?

plus, now every fullscreen application (like the linux native game cube2 (sauerbraten) and the wow login screen) is working with very low fps and slowed.

Also now you are using the open source driver 'ati' again, as you can see above. Try changing it to fglrx. If that doesn't work then you may need to installd fglrx again, as explained here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI

@Lincolns_back
What's up with the bold text? Writing in bold doesn't help you get more help.



You will have to explain your problem again and in more detail. Exactly what are you trying to do again? I didn't understand that part.



@Aricml
Thanks and np. Glad it worked out for you :D



@alican timur
Ok... the only thing I can see that's wrong with your set up right now is in this line in your config.wtf
SET UIFaster "2"It should be

Are you still getting exactly the same error?

yess still the same error. however, i found something like this on gentoo-wiki.



X Error of failed request: BadMatch
Note: Minimap Bug

This Is the Minimap bug, which as soon as you go into a building with it open, your game crashes

You may get an error that is similiar to this:



Code: BadMatch error

X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 13 (X_GLXCreateGLXPixmap)
Serial number of failed request: 373
Current serial number in output stream: 374


that refers to exactly what i'm getting. but there's no solution...

It doesn't matter what hard-drive WoW is located on, as long as you have both read and write permission to that drive. What file system is the drive that WoW is on using(FAT, NTFS, etx3...)? This might be a good read if it is NTFS: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009

Hello!
I've got a little disturbing problem.
When im running wow with the aoss command im having a delay on my wowsound for about 0,5seconds. The thing is that when i not use the aoss my sound works perfect with wow. But i cant use teamspeak or anything like that.
Anyone who knows what to do? :)

My WoW crashes without running in d3d mode. I get it to run, my resolution changes, and I hear the music but all I see is my Ubuntu desktop. Even alt-tabbing back to the terminal and selecting "on top" for the Wow window on the bar on the bottom of my screen just makes my comp freeze.

Without running in d3d mode, WoW crashes entirely and says it can't start up 3d acceleration.

I have a dell inspiron 9100 and an ATI radeon.

Have you tried passing -opengl instead of -d3d? What does the command glxinfo | grep render give you?

I got WoW working thanks to this HOWTO. My current issue is: When loading into the world, my model does not appear. I can walk, move around. If I hit the button for the Character panel, WoW crashes the whole PC :confused:

ATI Drivers are installed and running fine from what I can tell from when it creates the world

Open your winecfg and set your sound sample rate as low as you can stand. I don't know if that will fix it or not, but it tends to allow my system to run better.

Well I got my WoW up and running, but I had to do something that I didn't see posted on this forum or the Wiki, so I want to share it.

I was getting a crash changing the resolution in OpenGL mode like everyone else. I tried d3d mode, but the game would hang shortly after my character entered the world. Then I tried ApplyToForehead mod, and it would not crash the game, but the resolution wasn't being saved.

Curious as to what this addon did, I looked at the lua script, which is a whooping 3 lines:


SetMultisampleFormat = function() end
SetScreenResolution = function() end
RestartGx = function() end

I looks like SetScreenResolution is nullified out basically, and not doing anything, and the main thing I want to do is just have it not apply the changes immediately, which RestartGx seems to do so I removed SetScreenResolution and gave it a try.

It worked! Not only did it not crash, but WoW changed resolution in OpenGL mode without crashing! Right there! that was cool. So to summarize:


Get ApplyToForehead (http://files.wowace.com/ApplyToForehead/no-ext/ApplyToForehead-r19476.zip) and extract it to your Interface/AddOns folder in WoW
Open and edit Interface/AddOns/ApplyToForehead/core.lua to look like this:

SetMultisampleFormat = function() end
RestartGx = function() end
Start WoW in OpenGL mode as described previously in this thread.
Make sure the AddOn is loaded by clicking AddOns in your character select screen and clicking load out-of-date addons
Change your video options.


When I changed resolutions, it showed the splash screen with the blue progress bar briefly, then I was in my native LCD resolution, very happy!

Now if WoW wouldn't drop to 2-5fps every time I turn, I'd be alot happier :(

I went in xorg.conf and changed my driver from nvidia to nv and i rebooted.. As expected it wouldnt load my interface, so i did:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

and reconfigured the driver. After a reboot the interface loaded as expected and when i tried to glxgears -printfps surprisingly it showed this:

378 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.549 FPS
376 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.017 FPS
376 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.010 FPS
376 frames in 5.0 seconds = 75.025 FPS

The littles wheels gears whatever were moving very smoothly!! and the fps seems to be real. but......................

WoW will NOT run with 75 FPS.... just 5 :lolflag:
I give up lol

Except that change in FPS, everything else seems as it was before..

@NoMoreWindoze
I see you are using the old stable version of the Nvidia driver(8776). There are newer drivers available, which have even made it into Feisty's repositories, so they are considered quite stable now. They might solve your problem. These two pages offer help on installing it:
