After installing overwatch (with all the dependencies needed for it and battle . net (i cannot post link to the github as im a new user)), the game refuses to launch once having closed the battle . net launcher for the first time.
The play button gets greyed out and nothing happens. The output of lutris -d is consistently $ABOVELINK (I cannot put more than 2 links as a new user)
Things I have tried:
-Reinstalling overwatch on a different drive
-The solution under “Sleeping Agent / issues with installing / updating :” on the battle . net github page that im not allowed to link.
I would like to point out that I’m using KDE and battle . net has a known problem with this DE as pointed out in the above link. This is NOT my issue, and the issue pointed out there is not what is happening to me.
On previous installs, I did not follow the installation instructions properly and installed overwatch at initial startup. The game and battle . net launcher worked great. But i had the same issue as described above.
This issue seems to only be with booting the game up after the initial install of battle . net. Please help, I really want to play overwatch before it goes away forever with overwatch 2, and I’m very new to linux in general.

After battle.net installer took you to the login screen, did you login and download the game? or did you close the login screen, allow the battle.net script to finish and launch it from Lutris and install the game this way?
nvm - you tried both ways. What runner and runner options are you using?
I have tried it both ways in an attempt to get different behavior for my issue, uninstalling overwatch and lutris in between attempts. Both ways (including the correct way - the second way you mention) result in what I have posted.
check in your activity viewer (system monitor) to see if there is either a agent.exe or battle.net.exe process started. Also, the version of lutris you have is the older one, the new version is 0.5.10.1 but I don’t know Xubuntu to know if you can update it via sudo apt update
This is the error I was getting, I guess I didnt find it straight away when initially googling the error.
I fixed it by following the comment in that thread, (adding a None to the .pop method call in a config file), but it looks like this was updated in the version of lutris you mention (0.5.10), so I suppose anyone that updates should have this fixed?
