How to Install Battle.net on Ubuntu 20.04 Linux Desktop - LinuxConfig.org

Blizzard makes some extremely popular PC games, and their Battle.net application is how gamers install those games on their systems and keep them up to date. The only problem is that Blizzard has neglected the Linux community by never porting their Battle.net application over to it. Fortunately, most of the games still work pretty well on Linux if you are using Wine. We'll show you how to install Wine and run Battle.net on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa in this guide.

Hi!
I have Ubuntu 20.04 and I tried running SC2 with this install and it didn’t work either.
What worked for me was this video on youtube:
search by this name: “How to install and run starcraft II on linux - lutris, blizzard batllenet, gpu and wine” uploaded by intelligent gaming (the page does not allow me to leave links).
This guy explains all the steps to follow, he even leaves the links on the pages to download everything.

  1. Install the graphics card drivers
  2. The installation Wine from the official website.
  3. Install Lutris.
  4. Install battlenet
  5. Install SC2
    Now battlenet and SC2 open directly with the Wine application.
    I imagine that to download the other games it must be the same until step 4.
    Hope this can help you.
