Game manager Lutris continues Flatpak improvements

By - | Views: 14,901

While it's not quite ready yet, proper support for Flatpak is coming for Lutris which will make it work easily on the Steam Deck and a new update is out now.

For those who haven't used it: Lutris is an app that allows you to have one place to launch all your games from on Linux. This includes Steam, GOG, Origin, Ubisoft, Emulators and more. Regardless of them being Native Linux titles, Windows games run through Wine and more.

Version 0.5.10.1 is a smaller update than usual, as this is mainly fixing up issues from the previous release while also improving Flatpak support. Here's what's new:

  • Check for Steam executable in home folder for Flatpak
  • Adjust the Steam, application and desktop shortcuts to launch with
    Flatpak when necessary
  • Disable local (XDG) service in Flatpak
  • Simplify MangoHUD option (now an On/Off toggle)
  • Remove ability for Lutris to quit Steam
  • Don't default to fsync on older kernels
  • Default to a base resolution when Lutris is unable to read the current
    configuration
  • Fix issue with .NET 4.8 installation which affects the FF XIV launcher

I'd love to see the Flatpak version of Lutris. I think Lutris is next to Steam the most important piece of software for many Linux gamers.

Having a Flatpak version finally removes some of the hassle of setting it up for new penguins and SteamDeck users 🐧.

So thanks to everybody contributing their time or money into this project. :)

No ! Long live PPA+DEB

Joke aside, great news ! More flexibility when it comes to packaging is always good news. With all the recent updates and new stores supported, Lutris is becoming quite a gem. Maybe someday, we won't have to install 10000 different launchers and just keep this one ?

Out of curiosity, do you use 2FA?

Broken for me too. 2FA doesn't matter - when you turn it off, it reverts to 2FA via email. But the problem is that when you enter your username and password, then hit "Login", the page (in Lutris, it's like an embedded web page) just flickers and does nothing.

Other logins seem to work. Just Humble is broken.

It's a recurring issue - there are currently two tickets open on the Lutris github, this one, which suggests it's a cloudflare issue and this more recent one which doesn't seem to suggest any fixes at all.

Humble Bundle auth is broken on every client that use their API. This includes GamesHub as well. This is caused by a Cloudflare change on Humble's end.
