World Of Warcraft on Ubuntu

This was much simpler than I anticipated. Much!
I followed some simple steps.

Installing Wine and WoW:

- Ensure that direct rendering: Yes
glxinfo | grep rendering

- Add the WINE Repository (Gutsy Gibbon)
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

- Install WINE from Synaptic:

- Run winecfg
  • Choose ALSA Audio
  • Choose Emulate Virtual Desktop and specify a size

- Download the WoW Installer and run it
  • wine path/to/warcraft/installation/Install.exe

- Add these lines to the WoW config.WTF
  • sudo gedit path/to/warcraft/installation/WTF/config.WTF
  • Add these lines:
SET SoundOutputSystem “1″
SET SoundBufferSize “100″
SET gxApi “OpenGL”
    - Run WoW:
    • cd path/to/warcraft/installation
    • wine WoW.exe

    Sound Not Working?

    I ran around in circles before i figured out the SIMPLE fix. I tried changing audio to OSS. Tried installing the alsa-oss wrapper. But all is was is 'Change Directories to where the executable is located and THEN run the exe'
    cd path/to/warcraft/installation
    wine WoW.exe
