i just installed gutsy (replaced XP :-P byebye, microsoft) and i'm trying to get WoW to work. i've got it all installed (using wine) and when i do wine WoW.exe (while in my wow directory) it shows the BC starter video (portal, draenei and belfs, blah blah). then, it goes back to my desktop. it's like it forgets to actually run wow. any thoughts? thanks in advance for any help.

(:guitar: i'm going to play guitar hero now :-P)

Have you looked at the tweaks and installation guide found at winehq.org?

There was also a *beautiful* walk through along with registry tweaks that I'm trying to find. I'll post the link I used as soon as I find it.

i gave in and paid the 15 bucks for cedega; it runs now, but when i go to exit the game, my screen flashes a few times, and it takes me back to the ubuntu login screen. any thoughts?

I've never ran cedega and have never seen that problem before, but you might try running the game in windowed mode. It'll probably have better performance that way anyway even if it doesn't fix the problem.
