World of Warcraft on Ubuntu

Published December 16, 2007

World of Warcraft, with Ati X850, on Ubuntu Gutsy

First, do this:

Then, do this:

Then, if you use Dvorak, use this awesome shellscript (!) to launch WoW:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
setxkbmap en
wine /home/[your user]/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/WoW.exe -opengl
setxkbmap dvorak

Yay, it gives you that phat qwerty layout, launches WoW, and swaps back to dvorak when WoW exits.
