Try this… And you actually do not need playonlinux to install wow. After you have install wine you just install world of warcraft the normal way. Double click the installer and you are done. – Luis Alvarado Mar 21 '11 at 13:29

Yes, it is possible. First Download and install(by double clicking) PlayOnLinux then open PlayOnLinux (Applications -> PlayOnLinux) and click install.

The official AppDB page holds one of the best maintained guides. That's your best bet for getting it set up and optimised.

playonlinux takes care of everything (even setting wow to use opengl). – Alaukik Feb 26 '11 at 16:07

Have a look at the Ubuntu WOW page "WorldofWarcraft" at
