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”
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:
Download the installer
Follow the on screen instructions to install the game.
Login with your wizard101 account and enjoy the spiral
