How To Install World of Warcraft in Ubuntu or Linux Mint (updated)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.


World of Warcraft functionality on Wine

Usually, installing the latest development version of Wine is the best option. However, sometimes Wine suffers from regression and some older version might perform better. If you are having trouble with one version, try another.
__Updated and tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS & WINE 1.7!

1. Install the latest Wine from the official Wine PPA:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.7

2. Right click the downloaded installer, right click it and select Open With > Wine Windows Program Loader.
