Empire Earth on Linux
Recommended Distribution Arch Linux or Arch Linux Spin*

Empire Earth 1
• Go to Flathub and Install Bottles*
• Go to GOG and download the .exe file not Gog Galaxy
• Click on run executable than pick the downloaded .exe file
• In bottles and go to dependencies and install directmusic IMPORTANT!
• Than run the game if you want to run Art of Conquest just click the play button under program for EE-AOC

Empire Earth 2
• Download from AUR heroic-games-launcher-bin*
• Also in AUR download protonup-qt-bin than in protonup download protonGE and WineGE(Requres Steam and Lutris)
• Log into your GOG account than download Empire Earth 2
• In the options for Empire Earth 2 go to Wine Version and pick Wine-lutris-GE-Proton
• If you want Art of Supremacy go to Others in Options and under Select an alternative EXE to run select EE2X.exe
*
1. By Arch Spin meaning distributions that are almost identical to Arch Linux like EndevourOS or Arco Linux on the other hand distributions that are based on Arch Linux like Manjaro and Garuda they use other repositories and other kernels in Manjaros case packages are a bit older
2. Instructions how to install Flatpak are on the Flathub site
3. Use an AUR helper like paru or Aura

I remember, at some point Lutris was the most recommended method to get EE2 and UP1.5 running: https://ee2.eu/linux/#lutris

Heroic is quite new and in the beginning was a GUI option to Legendary a text based FOSS launcher to install games from Epic Games than Heroic recently added GOG support hence why i recommend it for Empire Earth 2. Well thanks to the directmusic requirement of Empire Earth 1 Heroic don't work as well if you play without directmusic the game crashes.
