Installing Starcraft II on Linux Mint XFCE 19.3

Post by anthonyphamy »

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install Starcraft II on Linux Mint XFCE 19.3. This will be my first experience trying to install a game on Linux. I was able to find two potential guides online, however I notice differences in the coding. Do those differences make a difference? Is one way better than the other?

If you already have Wine installed you can just add Blizzard launcher to Lutris and install it from there

Thanks, I tried installing Wine, but not sure if I did it correctly. Should I try deleting everything and re-installing Wine/Lutris. Is there a quick and easy to way to delete everything before a fresh install?

You can see if you have Wine installed correctly by typing winecfg in terminal. If the configuration window pops up, you should be good to go. Open Lutris, search/install Blizzard Battle.net launcher and install the game from there.
