I've got wine and World of Warcraft running. Framerates are great, load times appear faster than Windows. I have one issue though. I can't click on items within game. I have read reports of this and several patches implemented in Gentoo that correct the issue when using emerge to build the wine package. However, I have not yet found any patches or fixes to resolve the issue within Arch. I was wondering if anyone out there could point me in the right direction? Thanks.
Nevermind, I just found the WoW ArchWiki.
Well, I thought it was resolved, but I am getting a failure when I try to follow the instructions listed on the wiki.

Welp, I got the package to build with (i think the patches). For some reason the patch on the Archwiki wouldn't work, I had to grab the patch straight from the Gentoo Wiki. I'll let ya know how it works.
Looks like the package from the Gentoo website did the trick. World of Warcraft runnin like a champ using wine.
there used to be a pasting problem with opera atleast, and i think perhaps with ff too.

i know that i had this problem when i tried running it under debian like 10 months ago.
i think we solved by setting this variable:
