Wine + World of warcraft

Post by JBL1 »

Hey all,
Need a little help over here.
I just installed Linux Mint 10 before i used Ubuntu 10.10 but found Linux Mint faster some how.
Well my problem is i've been playing world of warcraft in Ubuntu whit no problem and iam using the same drivers from ati's homepage that i used in Ubuntu.
I have looked over the xorg.conf and it looks the same as the one in Ubuntu.

But still when i start World of Warcraft i get a strange picture. I've upload the picture.

And fglrxinfo give me this.

Code: Select all

display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series 
OpenGL version string: 4.1.10524 Compatibility Profile Context
And glxinfo | grep rendering gives me

Code: Select all

direct rendering: Yes
This is my Xorg.conf

Code: Select all

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

how are you installing wine? are you using the package manager, or some other method?

@ bitmason: Software Manager or Package Manager. Doesn't matter which - the one you like the most. Type Wine in the search box.
Software Manager: click Wine and then click Install
Package Manager: right-click Wine and mark for install, click the Apply button on top.
Now Wine is downloaded and installed.

@JDL1: You are using the same Wine version (e.g. 1.2.2)?
Your fglrxinfo and glxinfo look OK, and I think the Xorg.conf is fine too (I am not a xorg.conf expert).

I refer to this page whenever i mess with wow.
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... &iId=20549
Scroll towards the bottom it say's ATI stuff, i didn't read it all as it does not pertain to me.
Good luck to you as wow runs fine here (nvidia).
