    WoW problem on Ubuntu 10.10

    Hey guys I am trying to run WoW on Ubuntu and and since windows is completely screwed, I have tried to install WoW on this system.

    So here's the deal I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I currently have Wine 1.3 installed. I installed all the patches of WoW through the Wine Tricks installer and it will not launch. No matter what I try, it will not launch and I am at a lost to what to do about it now...

    Could you help a gal out?

    Try go to where WoW is installed and launch the game manually via the terminal.
    Something like this:
    Code:
    wine <path>/wow.exe
    elementary OS Luna

    also you can try launching it by browsing to where it is installed and right clicking on it and selecting windows program launcher

    Re: WoW problem on Ubuntu 10.10

    Okay so
    World of Warcraft is installing it is currently on the 1/2/3 screen setup/available/playable. So right now it is in the yellow bar...

    The blizzard background downloader is also up but it says "waiting" and nothing is happening..

    Further more I Have Wine 1.2 installed with the package etc and it is working properly.

    So here is the problem... and I am going to refer to this thread here

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=579378

    I am trying to click "PLAY" and it crashes.
    I looked else where on the ubuntu forum and the person says to run this in the terminal

    Winecfg okay did that

    Then they say to run this in the terminal

    gedit ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf

    Okay got that too, so then they say to paste this code in there SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
    SET SoundBufferSize "150"
    SET gxApi "OpenGL"


    Did that and then it tells you to SAVE, well I click on SAVE and it does not save there is an error message telling me this...

    Could not find the file /home/wildtrax/.wine/dri…f Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf.

    Is that because I didn't finish downloading the game all the way? because it is still playable just wont run well I assume...


    My last option is to go and buy the WoWCD and manually install them on WINDOWS... even though the drive is corrupt and the internet will not let me download anything it should work... any ideas guys? I've been trying to get this to work all night long.

    thanks so much for your help

    What kind of outputs do you get if you execute Launcher.exe or WoW.exe via terminal with the wine command?
