I have been trying to run WoW on Ubuntu 12.04. When I run it on unity, the frame rate is very low and it is impossible to play. Although, when I launch it on gnome shell, for some reason, the frame rate gets very high and the playing experience is very comfortable. The problem is that I prefer running Unity instead of gnome shell, but I like to play WoW too. Is there a way to run WoW on Unity, with no lag?
You may need to disable Compiz before you play games, it eats up quite a few FPS this however will leave you with no Unity at all, so if you wish to play games use Unity 2D instead.
