All too often the release of a Linux distribution leaves CrossOver broken and we are left scrambling to find a quick fix for our customers. Fortunately for us, Ubuntu 14.10 is truly Utopic. CrossOver 14 runs right out of the box and supported Windows applications like Hearthstone run seamlessly.
For Ubuntu 14.10, we ran through the two most popular spins (Unity and Gnome) and found no glaring issues. Here is a quick guide on how to get Hearthstone running on Utopic Unicorn with CrossOver.
1.) Download the latest version of CrossOver from our site.

2.) Let the Ubuntu Software Center install CrossOver.
3.) Locate CrossOver and launch.

4.) CrossOver will resolve any packages it needs for the first
5.) Click to "Install Software" and choose Hearthstone. CrossOver will automatically resolve any additional
packages the app needs.
6.) Install Hearthstone.
7.) Finally, play!

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
