WoW on Linux [SOLVED]


First things first, you need at least Wine 1.1.17. To upgrade/install the latest version of Wine.

Update/Install Wine 1.1.17 or higher

1. Remove the wine that comes with Ubuntu (if you've installed it)
Code:
sudo apt-get remove wine
2. Open a terminal and type:
Code:
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
3. Type:
Code:
sudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list
4. Add one of the following to your sources.list (whichever may apply to your version or *ubuntu)
Code:
## Wine, Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt hardy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt hardy main
Code:
## Wine, Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt gutsy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt gutsy main
Code:
## Wine, Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04):
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt feisty main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt feisty main
Code:
## Wine, Ubuntu Edgy Eft (6.10)
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
Code:
## Wine, Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06)
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main
5. Type the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
6. Type the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
7. To install wine either type:
Code:
sudo apt-get install wine
Or by using the Synaptic Package Manager under System->Administration.

Installing WoW

Depending on if your using CD's or DVD's there are 2 different mounting procedures for each disk you have.

If the installation disk is a CD
Code:
sudo umount /media/cdrom0
Code:
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0 -t iso9660 -o ro,user,unhide,uid=`id -u`
If the installation disk is a DVD
Code:
sudo umount /media/cdrom0
Code:
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom -t udf -o ro,user,unhide,uid=`id -u`
Every time you switch your disks out, you must un-mount then re-mount them with the appropriate command. This ensures all hidden files on the disk that are necessary to install are available for the installer.exe

If you get a black screen in game
When I set my effects down to low it fixed it. This is as far as I go w/ this tutorial, beyond this good luck.
