    Extreme WoW lag with wine

    I just made the switch from windows 7 to ubuntu and when i switched i moved my WoW onto an external harddrive and now i put it onto ubuntu without installing it with wine. Now im pretty confident this works all i do is right click the launcher and click run with wine windows program loader and it starts up just fine i can login and everything the only problem is i get extremely low fps im talking like 1 fps. Does anybody know how i can solve this lag?
    Thank You.

    Hey there,

    go to WTF folder and delete the wtf.conf file then try it again.

    Did you copy paste your wow files into the .wine/..... ?

    Hey again,

    Go to Application -> Wine -> Configure wine. When the window pop up, have a look around to check it out, all the tabs etc, then close it.

    Now go to Places-> Home -> press Ctrl+H to show the hidden files. If you are on terminal, the command is ls -a. Your wine directories nwo should be there.

    You need to run once the configure wine, to create the directories.

    Also which version of wine do you have? ( wine --version on terminal to check it out )

    Have fun

    Sorry for the double post mate.

    You said you just made the switch to ubuntu from windows7. Did you activate your graphic's card drivers? I you have nvidia then

    go to System -> Administration > Hardware Drivers -> click activate.

    Also try with no visual effect first. System-> Preferences-> Appearence-> Visual Effects to None.

    Have fun

    Edit: Cool you reply before i double post hehe
