How to install SWTOR in (x)ubuntu

If you’re a MMO lover like me you’ve got to check out Star Wars – The Old Republic (SWTOR)

The game takes place about 3000 years befor Star Wars IV A New Hope and you can play as Jedi, Sith, Soldier, Sniper and so on.  I’ll post a review of it a little later on.

If you haven’t installed Lutris allready, follow these steps. If you allready have Lutris on your system, skip to the bottom of the page.

I recommend you start with updating your system: 
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
After that I recommend installing wine:
sudo apt-get install wine1.6
Next it's time for Lutris:
ver=$(lsb_release -sr); if [ $ver != "18.04" -a $ver != "17.10" -a $ver != "17.04" -a $ver != "16.04" ]; then ver=18.04; fi
echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/xUbuntu_$ver/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
wget -q http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/xUbuntu_$ver/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lutris

Next go to: https://lutris.net/games/star-wars-the-old-republic/ and choose to install the game.
Note that it’s an about 40GB download so it might take some time to download, depending on  the speed of your internet connection.
