Everything works well right out of the box.
What does not
What was not tested
I have not yet tested the real-time online multi-player mode.
I noticed that when I start the battle.net app from Gnome Terminal, I see a long list of errors that repeat, but they do not seem to effect performance. I still need to learn how to interpret the errors. I'm just getting started with learning wine, so little by slow :) This is my first time using wine under Ubuntu Linux 18.10 on an Asus Zenbook UX501VW With Nvidia Proprietary drivers. I was genuinely surprised by how smoothly the install went and how well the game works. Thank you WineHQ! I look forward to learning and contributing in some small way.

It looks like the 64-bit LotV client is not working in wine so far. To try the 32-bit client
If using custom gamma settings or using an application that automatically changes gamma (e.g. redshift) then at specific times, your gamma setting may reset for a short time.
To fix this, open the registry editor and navigate to:
Inside the newly created "X11 Driver" add the chain value "UseXVidMode" and set it to "N".
After a Battle.net update or a crash, there are sometimes old processes left running that may interfere with your next launch. These processes can be killed before trying again:
killall -i -r '.exe'
Or you can do this manually (and more safely):
ps x #and then....kill as necessary after you got the process ID in the first column
#of course it doesn't hurt to take a look at the manual for these commands:
You can download the StarCraft II Starter Edition for free via the Battle.net Launcher, which includes the first campaign (Wings Of Liberty) and the Arcade (Mods).
Please test how / if the game works before buying it.
As of October Windows XP is no longer supported
