Guildwars on Ubuntu 9.04

As I was dazzled by how easy it was to install Guildwars on a Ubuntu 8.10, I think it’s worth noting that it is as easy on Ubuntu 9.04.

  • First off, you’ll need to have wine installed. If you don’t, fire up a terminal and hit sudo apt-get install wine
  • Then enter your CD.
  • The computer will note the autorun content on the disc and asks you what to do with it.
    By default, there should be the option to execute it using wine.
  • Hit the OK button.
  • Let it install, and you’re ready to play.

If you don’t have the cd’s you can always follow Christer Edwards’s blogpost.

  1. it didn’t work for me. Guild Wars will not run in Ubuntu, but it runs great in Windows.

  2. I did this, but whenever I try to play it, the screen gets magnified and all I get is the Nightfall cursor. And whenever I try to switch screens, the music stops and that’s all that happens.

    What do I do?

  3. @Rob Ross:
    Have fun 😉

    @ Flow:
    Can you try running it windowed?
    (add the “-windowed” option to your shortcut)
    Do you still have these issue’s when in windowed mode?
