    Hello,

    Did you autoremove with the terminal and then run an update before you or after you installed the later wine? Make sure you don't have Firewalls blocking it, also, try this fix;

    typing

    echo 0|sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope

    before running starcraft 2 avoids the issue for me

    Given the workaround, it could be related to this bug

    or this one

    Thanks to Shadows_Friend for pointing these out here

    If that fails, I would suggest something that nearly works everytime I or another suggests it; downgrading to 1.3. wine. But I will continue to offer my assistance for your current version as long as you are willing to still use it.
