at their website: https://www.gog.com/galaxy
make a small script to run the program:
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe &
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe &
Then use this script to get connected to Gog, download Gwent and click play to Play it.
That All, enjoy!
(in case you don't want to use the script)
To fix the timeout issue with gog, you must be sure that GalaxyCommunication is run before GalaxyClient.
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyCommunication.exe
cd /home/j2lapoin/Games/gog/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/GOG Galaxy
env WINEPREFIX=~/Games/gog wine GalaxyClient.exe
