Updating world of warcraft addons
The first thing you need to do to be able to use jcurse is to set the World of Warcraft installation path:where "ADDON_SHORT_NAME" is the addon short name which comes after "/wow/" in the addon URL.For instance, if the addon URL is for the command above you'd have to use "deadly-boss-mods" (without the quotes).Just click on the link below that best suits your needs and follow the given instructions -- all images will open to show you a larger one! This guide will cover both methods, including how to use only the Curse Client to get what you need! There are two methods a player can use: The simplest, which is using our Curse Client to install them for you, and the hardest, which is manually downloading and installing them yourself.I should also mention that Wow Matrix is a tool similar to Curse Client (for Wo W only) and it works on Linux, but it uses its own database, which lacks many addons (in my test, only one of the 5 addons I use was available via Wow Matrix), that's why I searched for Curse-compatible alternatives.Installing addons is very easy: the first time you start lcurse, click "Update Catalog" - this gets a list of all the available addons from No more wasting time manually checking Wo W Add On websites and downloading Add Ons!
Installing a World of Warcraft addon is easy, you must simply extract a zip into the game's Add Ons folder however, updating them manually is pretty time-consuming, even if you only use a few addons, because you must check if the addon has a new release, then download the new version, extract the zip - all of this manually and for each addon.
That's why I searched for a Curse Client Linux alternative that works with the latest World of Warcraft (Warlords of Draenor) and I found a couple of such tools which, even though are not perfect, can automatically update all World of Warcraft addons via curse.com, and I though I'd share them with you.
This can take quite a while but only the first time as it's much faster after that.
Then, click "Add addon" and enter either the addon name (this field uses autocomplete so typing just a few letters from the addon name should list the addon you want to install) or the addon URL, click OK and that's it: After installing Java 8, simply download the latest (version 1.0 at the time I'm writing this article) jcurse from HERE and extract it in your home directory.
Important notes: both Curse Client Linux alternatives below only support World of Warcraft.
Also, they don't support searching the Wo W addons database from the application so to install addons, you must add their URL (lcurse) or short name (jcurse) - that's not required when updating addons though.
