I have Grim Fandango and World of Warcraft.

How do i install these through Wine. I have totally cleaned my computer from any MS products. I do not want to have to revert to the dark side.

Please help.

I am not able to mount or figure it out. I used to use ISO buster and Daemon tools.

How do i get this up and running?

in linux you can mount an iso image with the command



cd /path_to_the_ISO_file
sudo mount -o loop ISO_file /media/cdrom


this way your iso file would be mounted in your cdrom usual mounting point. After that just install wine using synaptic package manager or the command apt-get install wine , and the exe file should be automatically executed by wine when you double click on it. If it's not than right click on the exe file select open with and than choose wine from the programs available.

And that's about it.

Get furiusisomount from ubuntu repository.


regarding the game I would recommend you take a look and search in our wine forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=313
You'll find all the info you need there.

I am still stuck at square one. WOW is playing intro then i get an error and it crashes. Thinking maybe virtual memory was changed when i solo-ed this.

Ubuntu is the only OS i am using now.
the icon is still on top fo the desktop, and it launches intro movie. Then crashes.
