Ubuntu – How to run WarCraft Frozen Throne (DOTA)


I am Using Linux for the very first time And i have one question. Dunno if it will be answered,but i hope so.. I have fujitsu ah 530 with intergrated video card(INTEL HD) so can i play my fav game on linux? And how to do it?

I installed it via Wine,but when i am starting the game with It,the game windows shows soooo poor,its unplayable,i can take i screenshot.

  • Try forcing OpenGl mode in the game when you start it.

    For a quick test you can just open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t) and type this to start the game forcing OpenGl

    wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Warcraft\ III/Frozen\ Throne.exe -opengl
