    How do I get Starcraft 2 onto Ubuntu

    I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 onto my Asus G51V. Overall I'm liking it a lot, but I would like to play Starcraft 2. I've read about an application called Wine that might work, but I've also read that it doesn't work very well and won't work with SC2. I've also read about an application called Crossover Games (or something like that) that works better, but apparently costs money.

    Any ideas? I'm sure someone's done this before me.

    SC2 is pretty highly rated on winehq.org, with apparently nothing faulty, --LINK--

    With that the case I would suggest you check out the playonlinux package for installing such games. It is a package that allows the installation of selected Windows software and downloads the appropriate version of Wine to run them with. Good luck.
