[Wine] Ubuntu + Wine = Can't See My WoW :(

Hello all,

I've been struggling for a while now to get World of Warcraft running 
under wine, and there's lots of helpful information out there, but 
nothing seems to address the particular problem that I am having.  
Rather than try to explain it to you, it would be easier just to show 
you a screenshot:


In a nutshell, the toons and certain items in the world look fine, but 
the world itself is too dark, at least in some locations.  I have tried 
adjusting the gamma settings in the Config.wtf file, but they seem to 
have no effect.

The second problem that I have is that the minimap doesn't work, but I 
understand that there may be no fix for this.

Anyone have any clues?

The latest Ubuntu
Wine 0.9.52 from winehq.org

Acer Aspire 9410z
Intel 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express video controller

I have actually had to go and install Windows on my perfect little 
linux-only laptop just to be able to play, and that makes me sad.
