My first Elder Dragon Highlander

Ok, I recently discovered this awesome unofficial Magic The Gathering format.
For those who don’t know Magic The Gathering: It’s an awesome (but expensive) trading-card game.

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.
