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.

How about lineage?
I have no experience installing Lineage on Ubuntu.
But there are some interesting posts on it on the ubuntuforums.
Howto: Lineage 2 – C6 in Ubuntu 7.10
Howto: Run Lineage II (2nd throne) on Ubuntu Hardy
In the first howto there is a guy pointing out that it even should be possible to run it by taking the existing windows copy 🙂
it didn’t work for me. Guild Wars will not run in Ubuntu, but it runs great in Windows.
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?
Have fun 😉
Can you try running it windowed?
(add the “-windowed” option to your shortcut)
Do you still have these issue’s when in windowed mode?
