What does not
Installation from the DVD can crash with error message "No installer data found". If this happens, put the content of the DVD in a folder and start the Installer out of this folder. If this don't work, download the Installer from battle.net. The battle.net Downloader & Installer worked for me without problems. ;-)
What was not tested
PTR (SHOULD work like the public server)
Tested using Lubuntu 64 Bit and Ironhide for NVidia Optimus Graphics I've tested it with Wine 1.3.x, too. It works just like on newer Wine-Releases-

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.
