Guild Wars 2 is a game developed by NC Soft. Currently a native client is only available for Windows and Mac systems. It is runnable through wine though.

Installation

Install wine and mpg123. Download the GW2 client from their website, and run it like this:

wine ./Gw2.exe

Alternatively you can use WineGW2 which is a fork of wine that fixes some issues and provides better performance. You may still want to install wine package to get the dependencies right.

Known issues

1. Patcher/launcher window is invisible/flickering.

Run it with -dx9single like so:

wine ./Gw2.exe -dx9single

2. Patcher/launcher crashes with assertion failed on "m_ioCount"

The best known "fix" for this is to just let it crash and restart it, it should continue on where it left off. Some people reports that the installer crashes when approximately 1 GB has been downloaded but some other people reports crashes every few minutes. This however is rarely a problem when installing patches and only the initial installation poses a challenge, reason why some people just copy the Gw2 installation directory or the Gw2.dat from a Windows installation into the GW2 installation directory in Linux (/wineprefix/GuildWars2/drive_c/Program Files/ArenaNet/Guild Wars 2/) when installing the game.

The percent of the download resets every time the launcher is started, but the amount that has already downloaded is not accounted into this number; just what remains is. The best number correlates with the total download progress is the Files Remaining.

If you have only one file remaining, switch to a language other than english or spanish, let it download that information, and then switch back to English.

3. Ingame Bazaar (Black Lion's Trade) does not work ("Awesomium patch")

Fixed in Wine 1.7.5.

For more info see: Wine bug #27168

4. Make "Garbage" when take screenshots in JPEG mode

Fixed in wine 1.7.4.

To take screenshot in BMP, add flag -bmp in command line:

wine ./Gw2.exe -bmp

For more info see: Wine bug #31557

5. The camera movement is stopped when the mouse reaches the edge of window

When click MOUSE1 and move to rotate the camera , this stops when it reaches the edge of the window, this fixed in 1.5.14, but broken again in 1.5.29.
