Playing Hearthstone on Linux

Today’s tutorial will be on how to install and play the popular Blizzard Online Card Game, Hearthstone, on Linux.

Yes, it is entirely possible and not really that difficult to get started.


Lets go.

Install PlayOnLinux

I’m on Ubuntu upstream, so the simplest way for me is to:

wget -q "" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux

If you’re on other distributions, don’t worry, the other ways are all well-documented here.

Install Hearthstone

Load up your PlayOnLinux, click on install and search for Hearthstone.

Hit install and follow through the installation process. Install everything that PlayOnLinux prompts you.

Once that’s done, login to and you’re done!
