Karmic, Wine, Warcraft III

NOTE: This was a draft post for a long time.  Not sure of what I wrote now or why I never published this post after writing it.

Here are the step that I did to get Warcraft III Frozen Throne working in Ubuntu Karmic 32bit through Wine with support for both battle.net and sound. I am doing this on a fresh install of Ubuntu Karmic (with no updates installed).


  1. Install Wine 1.1.38 for Jaunty (because no debs exists for Karmic)

  2. Install Warcraft III

    1. Insert the cd (or mount the disk image in my case)

    2. Right-click the install.exe file and select "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader"

    3. The Wine Gecko Installer will ask for permission to install a dependency. Click "Install".

  3. Install The Frozen Throne

    1. Insert the cd (or mount the disk image in my case)

    2. Right-click the install.exe file and select "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader"

  4. Install the Warcraft III (The Frozen Throne) Full 1.24d patch by right-clicking the patch that you download and select "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader"
