Starcraft II in Linux

By | 2010/08/29

Starcraft II apparently just works in Linux with wine without a fuss.

I just purchased Starcraft II as a digital download and will report back on a later post. 🙂


Well, how’s it going??

Well, getting there. 🙂 I tried a clean ~/.wine install, latest wine1.3-dev provided by winehq on Ubuntu 10.04, latest Nvidia drivers, and it starts, but is painfully slow at the opening menus. Can’t get into a game just yet, though I’ll mess around with some options and see how it goes.

I did have to install the required winetricks stuff as mentioned here.

More later…

    Wow, SC2 works in Linux? Cool I wonder if the gfx drivers all work as well.
