I'm currently running WoW on ubuntu with mild success. I have:
Intel i7 with ivybridge graphics
Game client version 5.0.5
The three problems I'm currently experiencing are:
Problem #1 Graphics glitches in areas with fog (I think), that look like this:
Some locations look fine. I've tried messing with all display settings, with no success.
Problem #2: intermittent crashes, such as:
ERROR #134 (0x85100086) Fatal condition!
The .MPQ file changes each time, but the error is otherwise identical. These occur anywhere between 5 minutes and an hour of play.
Problem #3: I can't seem to get the game to run with opengl - at least, the in game menu won't show it as an option. I've tried updating the config.wtf, as well as launching the game with -opengl, but neither work. I've read that opengl works better, however I have been getting decent frame rates (20-60), when issue #1 isn't occurring.
Any advice on any of the problems? Much appreciated!

Try updating Ubuntu or Wine? - Newer versions are out.
You probably need the new changes, as wine is on 1.5.14. You are a MAJOR patch behind + 15 minors.
And Ubuntu's latest is 12.10. I recommend updating them both and seeing if the problem persists.
