World of Warcraft is really skinny while using wine 1.3.6 and wont let me interact.


The title says the majority of it i have worl of warcraft installed on ubuntu using playonlinux and win 1.3.6 and the display is really skinny and unresponsive (like i cant click anything or type). Same with starcraft.

Image attatche the second desktop is my other screen im also running a nvidia Geforce 7800 with the nvidia accelerated graphics driver in the additional drivers program.

Try this. Open your World of Warcraft folder, wherever it's installed to. Open the WTF folder. Open the "Config.wtf" file with a text editor. Add the line:
Code:
SET gxApi "opengl"
Double check to make sure there isn't already a line like this in there, or a line setting it something else like "d3d11". Save the file and restart WoW. See if that helps.

Try manually executing starcraft with the OpenGL tag in it. You can make a custom launcher to do this for you but try it from the command line first.
Code:
wine "pathtostarcraftexe" -opengl
Make sure to include the quotations around the path to the executable such as Launcher.exe or whatever it is if it contains any spaces at all. For example if I wanted to run WoW like this without sticking the line permanently in the WTF file I'd run:
Code:
wine "/home/marcus/Downloads/World of Warcraft/Launcher.exe" -opengl
