I get those graphical glitches when running WoW 4.2.0 with wine (Ubuntu 11.10 AMD64), in a Dell XPS 15(L501X), even with ironhide.

Anyone can help me?

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-460M
  • 4gb RAM
  • because it's a Dell XPS 15(Optimus Technology), i have 2 graphic cards:
    • An Intel HD 460M integrated graphics card, which driver is i915
    • A nVidia GeForce GT 420M, ALREADY with propietary drivers
  • Running Ubuntu 11.10 AMD64 with custom XFCE Desktop
  • Wine 1.4 rc6(Emulating winxp)
  • corefonts and vc2005 installed on Wine

I've tried that, in fact, i tried it first, and searched in the fine web for this, but no answers :( – Desiderantes Mar 17 '12 at 0:44

I've seen that before, I cannot remember what fixed it. However there is a list of things you can disable. I'd first start with turning off triple buffering and making sure you're using OpenGL.
