According to your spelling, your request appears to be urgent...

According to the quality and amount of information you provide, you haven't issued too many successful support requests yet...

Right?

Hey, at least post apt's console output and your Kubuntu version!

There is no other way!

It should be possible to get World of Warcraft running on Linux - but definitely not with your attitude.

I'ld suggest you to make up your mind to get first-time access to some real information (this would require work) - or to re-register one of your Windows copies.
