After spending some hours trying out to install World of Warcraft in Kubuntu 11.10 with wine 1.5 and wine 1.4 I found a solution for me.
As described in several forums there's a problem with updating the launcher tools. For me for example it hangs up after a few seconds. I tried it out with disabling P2P, another wine-version, but nothing worked for me.
Finally I found a nice solution by updating the tools manually and I want to share this solution for everyone who has the same issue like me
I wanted to install the game from the Client-Installer available on Battle.net
First it works until the game wants to update the Launcher Tools. Cancel this and follow the next steps
1. Download the updated tools from http://patchup.info/launcher/#toolszip
2. copy the included files into your World of Warcraft folder
3. start the launcher (wine Launcher.exe)
4. be happy
My game is downloading at the moment I'm writing this and I hope I can help some of you with the same problem
- Kubuntu 11.10 64Bit
- wine 1.5.2
