And you learned...?


But your last post spoke volumes.

"opengl" is the answer.

IF you actually searched, and IF you actually followed almost EVERY post out there about installing wow/wine, "-opengl" is there.

For the future:
Here's an example of how you SHOULD have started:
Ubuntu 11.04 and wine 1.2.2
Graphics card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8300 GS] (rev a1)
Installed proprietary drivers
Using D3D

Skimmed install instructions, and picked and chose what I wanted to do. 

Now I have mostly "black" screen.
Install wine ppa/wine 1.3 (in stickies on top of forum)
Use "-opengl" (Either append to end of launch command, or edit in WoW install. Instructions posted everywhere in this forum)
Use XP as wine OS (Will help a TON with sound and patch issues)
DO NOT BOTHER WITH D3D on "underpowered" graphics (83300GS is real low-end, even in WoW now)
See how much easier that is? I WAS trying to help, but, as when you installed WoW, you didn't follow along.

Just trying to help.

Next time, you'll save yourself alot of aggravation. Post hardware (not model #. We aren't going to look it up), drivers, Ubuntu ver, wine ver, and what you did.
