Lutris game manager has another release out adding more spit and polish

Posted by , | Views: 3,670

Two updates in the space of a week? You spoil us Lutris team. The open source game manager continues spitting and polishing.

While this update is on the small side, every little helps towards making it the best experience possible. It's a very handy application, one ring program to rule them all. Need to run some games with Wine, how about an Emulator, Steam? Lutris covers it all.

Here's what Lutris 0.4.23 includes:

  • Prevent monitor from quitting games that open a 2nd process
  • Run on-demand scripts from game directory
  • Tell the user what executable is expected after a failed install
  • Fix a circular import causing issues on some distributions
  • Add missing dependency for openSUSE Tumbleweed

Word on the street is that the main developer, Mathieu Comandon, is taking some time off from other things to put some full-time work into Lutris which sounds exciting.

Find the source on GitHub or head to the official site for downloads.

'polish' lol, lutris is anything but polished (I guess it's version number starting with 0. is a clear indicator of why...). Does it work? sure. But if you run into problems, even something as simple as wanting to install your runners somewhere else than the default location (A huge problem for winesteam in particular since it'll get really damn fat after a while), don't expect to be getting any help on their forums, that place is dead as a brick. I've been fairly unimpressed with lutris so far, but it does work, and has made my life easier once or twice which is the most important part I suppose.

If you have issues, our Discord is pretty good with helping out with that.

Also, I never said it was polished, I said the added more polish - there's a difference. It has some ways to go, but going by the version number it's not hit a "stable" official release yet.

Well if you would use Discord there is the Lutris Team very Active and you get help fairly quick. I even did some bug hunting for them once for a few hours since there where some issues with the Lutris Runtime.

GuestDoes this mean it's finally going to stop adding games from my steam library I never wanted or asked the application to keep adding? Was getting annoying having it add tons of random things, cluttering up my lutris!

This so much.

I enabled sync with steam once a long time ago and my Lutris library is now populated with about 600+ games. The only way to delete them seems to be one at a time via the web interface or the client. There doesn't seem to be a way to mass delete games in your library :/

Yeah that is a bit of a lutris problem, it should let you blacklist things as to not auto-add them. I still find Lutris adding in my proton installs even after deleting them.

I must declare my first success with Lutris: starcraft 1 finally installed and running. Meanwhile, i have some interface troubles with SC2 on a regular wine install. Maybe i should have installed SC2 trough Lutris as well.

I am happy;

You could always just set it to show installed only (ctrl+H). or do you actually have 600 games installed?

Yes, the Discord is the place to go for Lutris help, as the forums there are strangely dead.

Yeah, I do have this option checked, just a wee annoyance when am looking at the list via the site instead of the client and startup times are a bit slower for the client.

I have about 100 odd games installed on steam
No normal games, just odd ones? A person of eccentric taste.
