Unable to install Beamdog client on new ubuntu link system

Hi all,

I had purchased the Baldur's gate series for a Mac OS computer some years ago which died about 6 months ago. I finally got around to purchasing a new computer. This one I bought from system76 running Pop OS! which is very much based on the latest ubuntu (19) OS. I logged into Beamdog and the games I purchased show on my account. I now want to install the Beamdog launcher as I understand the launcher now works on linux (yea!). I clicked on the launcher and it has a default selection "Open with USB Flasher" and to Save file. I tried both options which take me to the same place. I type in my authentication and it asks me to choose an .iso or .img that I want to flash or plug in a USB drive (which I don't have one). I am familiar with linux but this is quite new to me as I was expecting the client to just install. I tried the following so far.

sudo apt install libgnome-keyring-dev
sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module
sudo apt install libgconf2-4
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install lib32stdc++6
sudo apt install libopenal1:i386
sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

Am I installing the client correctly or in the wrong area to get the Beamdog client working on Linux? I got the Install Install BeamDog option at

Thanks all!
