    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    i'm running ubuntu 11.01 on an eMachine, but i replaced the motherboard to a MSI motherboard with a Pentium dual core e6300, running with 2gb of RAM & NVIDIA GeForce 6100 video card.

    i've been struggling with this for the last 24 hours. every time i run WoW, i can log in to my account, select my character and click enter world, then i get the loading screen with the progress bar, at the next screen , wine crashes.

    interestingly, from the terminal, if i run

    Code:
    gedit ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf
    the config file comes up blank, but if i browse manually to the file through the dashboard, it's there with all the edits recommended in the the how to.

    if i try to copy and paste after opening the file in the terminal, i get the following error when i try to save-

    Code:
    Could not find the file /home/wifely/.wine/drive…f Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf.
    fairly new to ubuntu, but this is a deal breaker for my wife if i can't get WoW to run. please help!

    You didn't say what version of wine you were using, stock or latest from the PPA?
    Are you running Nvidia propritary or open nouveau video drivers?
    Where did you get your wow copy from?

    It sounds like you are editing config.wtf files in two different locations, or there some sort of read or write permissions conflict.

    Are you launching wow from the terminal or using the launcher.exe?

    new version rGL
    fix for WoW 5.0 and library mode

    rGL - operation allocation opengl subsystems wine - on two processors

    http://aewi.info/rgl/

    Instruction:
    wget http://aewi.info/rgl/rgl.so
    cp rgl.so /usr/lib/
    LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine Wow.exe -opengl

    Okay, the first step worked, but then

    cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/lib/rgl.so': Permission denied

    Think the command should be

    sudo cp rgl.so /usr/lib/

    The permission denied is a normal user trying to copy without "root" permissions

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    I tried it with sudo but not with that order. I'll try it again...

    ... Well, no error but it's just not doing anything.

    anna@anna-desktop:~$ sudo cp rgl.so /usr/lib/
    [sudo] password for anna:
    anna@anna-desktop:~$ sudo cp rgl.so /usr/lib/
    anna@anna-desktop:~$
    Did the next step anyway...

    anna@anna-desktop:~$ LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine Wow.exe -opengl
    ^[[B^[[B^[[B^[[B^[[B^[[B^[[Berr:menubuilder:init_xdg error looking up the desktop directory
    wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\Wow.exe"
    anna@anna-desktop:~$

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    Well it should have copied it over, you can check using "ls /usr/lib/*.so"

    And the second is it cant find wow in that directory.

    "wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\Wow.exe"

    The wine command usually needs to be to the actual program folder i.e something like wine "C:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WoW.exe", putting it with the other command would be

    LD_PRELOAD=rgl.so wine "C:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\WoW.exe" -opengl
