Cant install Balsamiq Wireframes on Ubuntu 20.04

I want to install Balsamiq Wireframes.

But I can’t find a way to successfully install it. Always getting error in Lutris.

wget …~$ wget …/balsamiq-wireframes-linux/master/bw.yml -O /tmp/bw.yml && lutris -i /tmp/bw.yml

A couple of things to note as you’re running on Intel HD Mesa
First, It needs vulkan installed

Secondly, it needs the following runner under your home (or whatever user you run Lutris as)

Check you’ve got those, and you should be good to go.

Thanks for the explanation. I came across the Failed to retrieve wine (lutris-5.7-8-x86_64) information error as well. So I ended up sending a pull request to update to use lutris-5.7-10-x86_64 and was able to install balsamiq wireframes. Thanks!

Wow, I finally got it installed. Thank you both!
