I used Mint 9 for about a year before installing LMDE. World of Warcraft worked fine in Mint 9. But with LMDE the launcher crashes giving me an error:
The program Launcher.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check http://appdb.winehq.org for tips about running this application.
If this problem is not present under Windows and has not been reported yet, you can report it at http://bugs.winehq.org.
The launcher starts to load but crashes just about when text would pop up. I thought it might be a problem with gecko but it asked to install gecko just after it installed wine. I have wine 1.3.21. Wine says I have gecko 1.2.0 installed. I also tried to use the Wow install file but it also crashed when a window similar to the launcher window started to open. I can run Wow.exe just fine but that's not going to do me any good once it has to install the next patch.
I have searched for several days but haven't found an actual solution. I don't know if I am missing a package or something like that. I am still a noob when it comes to linux and I am not a programmer in any way. I know just about enough to be able to break something. = ) If anyone has a solution for me, I'd be much appreciated.
