Hi, I’m already using the forum because I’ve been having a headache for several hours and I can’t find a solution to this problem.
I’m currently trying to install Diablo II with the scripts. But the installation client is frozen.
I’ve already solved it !
The only thing I did was to close the launcher and replace it with the one provided by Blizzard, manually, because sometimes the tracker is stuck and you have to restart the download launcher.
Just open the winetricks explorer, and install it manually and it will detect where the directory was.
You can also cancel the install when it freezes, (click cancel in the launcher, and in the Lutris install window), and choose not to delete the game folder. If you then run the same script again with all the same options, it will resume the download. when the downloader opens.
You may have to repeat this more than once. It’s how I managed to get it installed.
I’m getting the above output constantly. I did a bit of digging and TCGETS and ENOTTY seem to be suggesting, that the Blizzard downloader and/or lutris is unable to open a file descriptor to write to because they can’t connect to a terminal. My strace-fu isn’t the strongest and I’m not that great with Linux’ internals, so correct me if I’m wrong.

None of them have an assigned tty, hence the ? in the output of ps aux.
Perhaps a way to solve it is to apply the same technique as with the Warcraft III installer by @legluondunet , that seems to be using similar technology (a Blizzard client) i.e. use explorer.exe to do the dirty work?

There was a bunch of tech tips on forums for companies like Cisco on how to configure your VPN by disabling things in the Internet Explorer settings panel. But with Wine that was all done (or missing).
My search has led me however to the WinINet library:
The attempt to connect to the server failed.
due to a hardware incompatibility with my new system, I’ve gone back to Windows, until it’s cleared up in a future Linux kernel. This was literally days after I posted my reply here. This means I can’t run this check for you.
