Solving some common problems 
 
The installer for World of Warcraft or Battle.net does not work 
 
You can resolve this error by throwing Configure Wine from the Ubuntu menu, go to Libraries and New override for library DbgHelp write button and press Add. Then select DbgHelp in Existing overrides and click on Edit then disable it. 
 
Your system is 64 bit and you see ERROR # 132 
 
You need to force World of Warcraft using the 32-bit client, if you use Battle.net to launch the game you can change WoW to 32 bits from the setup menu. 
 
With 64-bit drivers and the game fails Bumblebee 
 
You'll have to install the 32-bit libraries VirtualGL with the following command:
 
sudo apt-get install VirtualGL-libs: i386 
 
If you are playing World Of Warcraft on Linux and other problems or do you have some tricks to optimize can share with us by leaving a comment, so gamers slowly begin to lose their fear by migrated to Ubuntu or any Linux distribution.
