    execute wow from command line

    I'm trying to run world of warcraft from the command line, but don't know the commands to get
    Code:
    /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/wow.exe
    to run.
    just keeps returning no such directory exisits, even though it does

    not a wow or wine user myself but you might want to read this WOW how to thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...world+warcraft

    shouldnt it be something like this

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

    Re: execute wow from command line

    I have no idea what the executable for wow is but if there are spaces in it, use quotation marks around the full pathway, or use a backslash before the space to escape any spaces in the pathway or file name and also use wine as the program to run the executable, eg,
    wine "
    /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/wow.exe"
    or
    wine
    /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/wow.exe
