    First, are you using an NVIDIA card? If so, update to newest NVIDIA drivers and/or get my 0002-D3D-WoW-Nvidia-fix.txt patch from here.

    Right now, with every tweak I found enabled [except the seperate display one which just gave me a blank black screen and I had to reboot forcefully to exit (ctrl+alt+bksc, wouldn't work. neither would ctrl+alt+FX)] I'm getting 15~FPS with everything to the lowest, in the Video Options. If I use the same Video Options I was using with Windows, I'm getting 8~FPS (totally unplayable) (In Windows I was getting 20-30FPS with that configuration.).
    I'm using an ATI 9600XT with the fglrx driver, and that's probably why I'm having this problem.

    Anyone with the same video card that gets a better performance?

    I somehow got it up and running...it works in d3d with the icons all messed up and opengl is same result as before. And about updating my video card driver for nvidia i installed the driver using automatix...so wouldnt it install the latest one?

    EDIT: where do i put the .txt file...i also switched back to fiesty...

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    Thanks a lot Sammi, great guide.

    After I followed it all, I find myself loving ubuntu and wow on wine. I have but one question: how can I make "alt-click" to work in WoW? I have the postal addon, but I can't use it to its full potential because I can't use alt-click on the game. Any ideas?

    I posted before on this forum with a more complete description of the problem, but it seems no one has a solution for it. Had to bump it a few times. Just did again in case someone sees it. But I thought I would post here in case someone else is/was having the same problem.
