Hello, I have been trying to get Everquest 2 to run under Ubuntu 8.04 using wine. I cant seem to get the game to launch right. the scanner loads fine but it doesnt open up the launcher.

I cant seem to find any guides on how to run EQ2 on Ubuntu that are up, most places I go to have closed there threads on it.

Im running a 64 bit version of ubuntu if that makes any differences.

can someone please point me in the right direction to get this to work.

yes i have windows so please dont say install it on windows i have. but i wish to completely switch over to ubuntu.

I got this from Wine HQ, also there is a thread in the EQ2 Support Forums on getting EQ2 to run in Wine.

Make sure you are running it in windowed mode and not full screen.

Nice to see another EQ2 player!
