WoW Failed to Install


Cannot install World of Warcraft, stuck on location prompt. I cannot click the Continue button or interact with the window in any way. I am using dwm on Arch.

Followed this guide here, nerdrooted DOT com/2020/01/06/how-to-install-wow-in-arch-manjaro-linux/
(2 link limit rule)

As I get through the installation process; it freezes at this location in the screenshot. Paste provided below.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to get WoW up and running on arch! Thanks :slight_smile:

Solved. Followed the docs again and found I missed a package, an important one…


That has allowed me to interact with bnet.

I don’t understand why @Bossmighty had to add the Nividia Proprietary GPU drivers PPA for Ubuntu when he is using Arch just to get BNET to work.
