the most complete problem solving list is provided. After all my try and error the last days, I switched off the intro videos, the game starts, it is possible to change some settings in the game own menu, but then it freezes.

my specifications:
Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (64 Bit)
Intel® Core™ i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
RAM: 32058 MB

In the game’s options in Lutris, go to the System options tab and tick Show advanced options at the bottom of the window. This will reveal the option to Restrict to single core as shown here:
