    So how do i launch GuildWars?

    Please Help,
    I cant Launch GuildWars. Im using ubuntu as my full operating system, on an iMac. Iv installed it through Wine, Crossover, PlayOnLinux, Off CD-DVD and Off the web. They all seem to download and install fine, but how do i launch it? Iv tried typing C:/Program Files/ etc into the termianl, that does nothing, and iv tried clicking desktop icons and that doesnt work? But im not getting any errors or messages, just wont launch?

    Basically i would just like help getting GuildWars to run

    Cheers

    try searching for it on the dash, if nothing appears then,

    there is a hidden .wine folder on your home folder.

    you need to show hidden files on nautilus.
    When close to achieving you quit! If you don't try you failed. Real Winners are not afraid of losing.

    I looked on my dash, All i get its GuilWars.log and a GuildWars icon, which you would think would launch it, but nothing happens.

    Iv clicked show hidden files, sorry to be a pain, but what exactly am i looking for?

    try dragging the guildwars icon to the desktop and marking it executable in the properties. I think that would execute it.

    as for the wine folder, i think this might help if you are using 11.10:

    Okay. I tried making the icon executable. Now the small GW window had appeared and loads up to 100% (0 Files) which is getting somewhere, but again, that's all it does, it then jus sticks on 100% and nothing happened :/ I appreciate the help
