Lutris, the all encompassing game manager for installing games from various stores and services (both Native and with Wine / Proton) has a new version out. Plus, the Flatpak is finally ready, making it real easy to run on Steam Deck.

So now you can head to Flathub to get it across pretty much any Linux distribution, or directly via the Discover store on Steam Deck in desktop mode.

What's new in version 0.5.11:

  • Fix for some installers commands exiting with return code 256
  • Change shortcut for show/hide installed games to Ctrl + i
  • Show/hide hidden games is assigned to Ctrl + h
  • Install game launcher before login for services that use one.
  • Add Amazon Games integration
  • Added SheepShaver, BasiliskII and Mini vMac runners
  • Don't perform runtime updates when a game is launched via a shortcut
  • Support variables in script URLs
  • Fix crash when Lutris is unable to read the screen resolution
  • Enable Gamescope on Nvidia >= 515
  • Fixes for Steam shortcuts
  • Add Gnome Console and Deepin Terminal to supported terminal emulators
  • Fix crash when Mangohud is used alongside Gamescope
  • Translation updates

To play games from the Steam Deck UI:
Select "Create Steam shortcut" during the game installation or right-click on an existing game and choose "Create Steam shortcut".

To play games using the controller:
- Open Steam settings and in the Controller section open Desktop Configuration
- Change the controller configuration to Disabled

- The controller will now be accessible in desktop mode

I noticed the Amazon Games integration a few days ago and was very pleased. I have a lot of freebies in my Prime account and previously had to jump through hoops to install them. Now I just need to decide if anything in my account is actually worth playing...

Does it work for any countries Amazon or only US?
That's interesting, I thought lutris already had flatpak? At least, the lutris on my steam deck was a flatpak I'll have to go replace whichever unofficial one I have installed with the official one, for some reason in my head I thought it an was official flatpak

You gotta be so careful with flatpak's with their origins

Are you sure the flatpak version is properly maintained? The last update was at the beginning of August.

An official flatpak beta has existed for a while. It is legit but beta and not on flathub :)

Edit: Here is the link.

Well, I'm not in the US so - presumably - yes!

I am not sure its a lutris problem or wine in general, need to test more when I have time. But I wanted my lutris install directory on my nas, it's mounted via nfs and works just fine with steam, loads of room and more then fast enough for gog games, however using lutris I can not install any gog game using the gog installer, it's simply ends with code 256. Any other gog install method like native Linux or dosbox etc works just fine, just the games that need the gog installer. Moving the whole thing to a local drive, install and move to nfs works but a bit of a hassle. Anyways as I said not sure if it's lutris or wine in general.

wohoo, flatpak finally - after all, who would want to install something like origin without a sandbox :D

Amazon games integration is a nice plus for sure, too!

They give a ton of amazing indies, games that probably will never receive attention on Steam.

I dunno if you like rhythmical games, but look if you have this on your account:
