I'll show you how to install Starcraft II in Linux Mint. I gonna share some links in portuguese language while i explain the steps. I think you should to read theses topics if you don't understand the steps (you can translate this).

Steps:
  1. Be sure if you have flatpak in your mint. Type:

    flatpak--version

    Normally flatpak is already installed, but if it's not, type:

    Code: Select all

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt install flatpak

  2. Install Winepak:

    Code: Select all

    flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://dl.flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

    It will show up a window to install Battlenet, just install it. If the code above don't run, type:

    Code: Select all

    flatpak repair
    and Try again (don't worry, it's used to work in the 3/4 try) .
  4. Instal Starcraft II:

    Code: Select all
