How To Install World Of Warcraft In Ubuntu Or Linux Mint (W/ Fixes, FPS Optimizations)

World of Warcraft Ubuntu screenshot

Installing World of Warcraft (WoW) in Ubuntu or Linux Mint (with Wine) is pretty easy, however there are various crashes that can occur, especially if you’re not using the latest Wine and also, the FPS can be pretty low without a few tweaks, so I though I’d document everything I did to get World of Warcraft to work properly on my laptop (Nvidia Optimus, so I was able to test the game with both Nvidia and Intel graphics) and hopefully, this will help you play WoW under Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

Easily Install The Latest golang Compiler, LiteIDE and Various Go-Related Tweaks In Ubuntu With A Script

Go (or golang) is a programming language initially developed by Google.

The script downloads and installs the latest version of Go compiler and IDE (LiteIDE) in Ubuntu and it also automatically sets up most of the tings you’ll need:
