    Sometimes, 3D applications and games have problems if you have Compiz-Fusion enabled.
    Try running WoW with Compiz disabled. Go to System->Preferences->Appearance. Then go to visual effects tab and select none.
    If this works you can install compiz-fusion icon that makes an icon appear on the top right of the screen and lets you turn compiz on/off.
    To install it, type in terminal:
    sudo apt-get install fusion-icon
