World of Warcraft

'Launcher cannot run because its skin archive is damaged. Please run repair'.

This error is caused by missing 32-bit libjpeg libraries.

On new installs of Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit this can be a little tricky to solve. Crossover needs libjpeg62, but by default on 12.04 64-bit this library is not available.

To install, download the "libjpeg62_6b1-2ubuntu1_i386.deb" package from here:

and open this package in Ubuntu Software center. You'll probably be told that it's already installed, but choose to "re-install" anyway. When this is complete, you should find the following libraries in place:


and the WoW launcher should actually render and work.

Alternatively you can run this command:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386

ia32-libs packages does not depend (yet) on this and they really don't tell users much about their distro's multi-arch goodness

Please Wait...
