Since I updated Lutris this afternoon to the new version with apt to 0.5.5, battlenet doesn’t want to launch. More precisely, the login page lauches, I put in my credentials, it sends a request on the battlenet authentificator, I accept it, it makes the login page disappear (just like if it succeded to login), but even if I wait, nothing shows up.
I tried reinstalling Ubuntu 19.10, then winehq-stable with the wine instructions (winehq.org) and instructions from the lutris.net site to install Lutris. The only thing that does not turned well was when I installed sc2 (my final goal, for that I downloaded battlenet with the sc2 install on lutris website), I manually close the login page, because Lutris doesn’t do it.
Then I’m in the situation I already mentioned.
Please help, gaming is important ;D
PS: Lutris 0.5.4 was working like a charm. Nostalgia…
Lutris -d : (Only the end, 'cause new users can’t put links …)

Tarballs aren’t packages used by package managers (except for dists like Gentoo which don’t have a custom package format); they are standalone releases. Just unpack it somewhere and run from there (more details can be found in INSTALL.rst; but take note it warns against running setup.py manually). If you want to override the application menu link, you can copy the one from share/applications (or existing one, from /usr/share/applications) into ~/.local/share/applications and change Exec entry to use the binary from unpacked version rather than the globally-installed one.
I also have this issue. I am using Manjaro KDE, non-free nvidia drivers, newest non-rc kernel, and all packages from the stable branch. When installing a program using battle.net, the proper behavior is for the script to launch the blizzard battle dot net installer, and then automatically close the battle dot net installer once it finishes and reaches the login page. However, as of Lutris 5.5-1, the installer does not close automatically, and if you manually close it the Lutris script will hang.
Downgrading to 5.4 using the following method solved my problems, though I don’t suggest it unless you can’t find another fix or lutris doesn’t fix this soon. This guide page is for Manjaro, which uses pacman package manager, so I don’t know how other distros will behave. Use at your own risk. https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Downgrading_packages
For the last couple of days I had trouble logging in to World of Warcraft Classic (got errors no connection possible). But after some tries I somehow got in. It even seems as if Lutris kills my internet connection for 1-2 minutes, because I can’t access any web page after trying to log into Battle.net.
Since last night I only get to the login screen but from there nothing happens anymore. Still killing my internet connection for a short time, though.
Do I need to set this Lutris up the way my broken one is? Do I have to reinstall my games?
All the user-specific data (config, runners, game links) is stored in your $HOME directory, so different versions of the same program usually just use the same config files not even knowing they were created by a different version. The only cases where it doesn’t happen is when either the app config paths change between versions (a very unlikely occurrence IMO, usually happens when the app is rewritten completely and the previous location is deemed too ‘outdated’), or when the app changes the file format enough to consider those made by the other version invalid (doesn’t happen that all often).
If you’re not sure, you can back up Lutris config files before trying to run a different version. Their locations are: ~/.config/lutris (Lutris settings, and configs for runners and games), ~/.cache/lutris (downloads, login tokens, and temporary files), ~/.local/share/lutris (game banners, libraries, runner files, and the database of installed games).
Since I also use Manjaro KDE, maybe you might help me. I installed battle.net and hearthstone without any issues. But when I try to launch the game, I can see hearthstone logo, after a couple of seconds it does not launch and closes itself back to battle.net app without any errors. Do you have any idea about this?
Does anyone can play any blizzard games on lutris? I have seen some rumors on the net that Blizzard banned linux players from their servers who uses wine. Can anyone conifrm that if it is true or not?
