World of Warcraft in Linux using Wine

Many manuals of installing and using World of Warcraft (or simply WoW) in Linux using Wine (Windows emulation) are outdated and provide lots of complex instructions for old Wine version. The truth is very simple:


  1. Take a recent Wine version. Any version from this year (2007) will do. Debian and Ubuntu users can either use the wine from the latest releases of the distros or use the winehq.org repositories.

  2. Install WoW via the usual installer

  3. Edit $WOW/WTF/Config.wtf and add following lines:

    SET gxApi "OpenGL"
    SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
    SET SoundBufferSize "100"

  4. Run 'wine regedit' and set HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Wine->OpenGL->DisabledExtensions to "GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object" (you will need to create this string value)

My blog server has been down ever since I left off to Edinburgh for the 7th Debian conference. Since then I have been busy taking photos of everything and everyone here AND I am not alone in that. Enjoy!
