The driver support just isn't there. Are you running Lucid? The thing is that I like to try and make things work, and I like Linux. StarCraft played smoothly thou: I can't find a link to confirm the StarCraft issues, so maybe someone can corroborate this! I know that's not enormously helpful, but maybe it'll get you somewhere. Dual booting wouldn't be an option for me either. I haven't tried them all yet, but I thought I'd post them here for the benefit of anyone running it: Then, copy and paste the line below.
I don't know about that one Who knows, haven't tried it. I read elsewhere that OpenGL doesn't work with it, so again, can't vouch for that. I listed the tips in order of reliability, as you've no doubt noticed if you've read this far. I've been plagued with them about once every couple hours, usually while loading a level. I'm not saying the last error is related, but I'm not saying it isn't either.
Unless this happens again, I'm calling it hardware failure. When you do see that the downloader stops working no traffic and no download progress for a minute, even at 0 Mb remaining the open a terminal and use 'killall -9 BlizzardDownloa'.
I had to do that quite many times during initial install and patching. The downloader would 'crash', then it would download a few more megabytes and stall, then I kill it and the patcher restarts it, it ddownloads a few megs, crashes, stalls and it repeats. But at least it does go forward. My only problem is that I have some black bars that are an inch wide crossing the map that wont go away. I am not sure whats wrong there. I can install and start SC2 without any trouble but when I try to start the campaign no video plays during the cut-scene, I just get the sound.
When I actually start the first mission I get a blank screen with menus and sound. So, the menu works properly but everything after menu doesn't: Text in the loading screen is partly missing and when in-game, I can't see any units or structures - only the map.
Also every time when I quit the game it crashes my PC These are the bugs I'm experiencing myself right now: Missing letters and numbers in Starcraft II http: Wish wine full support every windows application: D Dave November 14th, , I've played a few sc2 games and I have problems to move the camera left and right. Up and down is no issue. But when it comes to left and right it seems that the cursor is visible from ubuntu 9. Anyone else have this problem? Dave December 4th, , So i reboot my computer and try again.
I have an Nvidia gtx graphics card which should be able to run starcraft 2 on ultra no problem. I have the latest drivers installed for my card straight from nvidias website. I have no audio problems or startup problems what so ever just can't get my game to run on better graphics settings. Anyone know how to help? I know this was posted a long time ago, but the fix for this is to set the VideoMemorySettings emulation keys in the Wine registry. Using the Wine environment where you Starcraft II is installed, run regedit.
Within "Direct3D", create a string value whose name is "VideoMemorySize" and set the value to be however much video mem your video card has, in megabytes. So if your card has a gig, set it to You'll find more info here: I just played my first multiplayer match in Wine and everytime I hit F10, instead of bringing up that menu it would instead bring up the Wireless Connection Settings from my Ubuntu desktop? All the other function keys worked fine.
May have been because I was running in Ubiquity. I switched back to classic for sanity's sake but don't know if that's going to make a difference. So easiest way is to change wireless connection shortcut key. Now the game runs fine, except for the performance. Its good enough for single player but the lag is too strong to micro effectively in multiplayer matches.
