Install Wizard101 on Linux Mint 17

For a while now, I have been wanting to play Wizard101 on linux.   I used to play Toontown within linux, but never could get Wizards to work.  Well now with the new wine 1.7, it is possible.   I have tested this on 2 different machines and it plays great.

 

First Install Wine

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks

Now configure wine

In a terminal type in “winecfg”

w101linux1

A new window should pop up, go to the graphics tab.  In here select Emulate a virtual desktop.  Choose a desktop size smaller then your actual screen size:

w101linux2Hit OK

Download the installer

Go to https://www.wizard101.com/game/how-to-download

Download InstallWizard101.exe

Now install it, go to your file location and open the file with Wine Windows Program Launcher
w101linux3

Follow the on screen instructions to install the game.

Once complete, you can then launch the game:
w101linux5

Login with your wizard101 account and enjoy the spiral
