Lutris has the first release candidate available for 0.5 which needs testing

Posted by , | Views: 5,543

Lutris, the excellent bit of software that allows you to bring together your scattered game library is closing in on a final release of the 0.5 overhaul. The first release candidate is now out for you to find some bugs.

Compared with the previous beta, there's not a huge amount that's new. Although, it does include the extremely handy built-in search feature. This new feature allows you to search the Lutris website game library, from within the application directly to add it to your collection. It's much nicer!

I've been really impressed with it, they even implemented a tiny suggestion from me for this release, where it will actually ask for confirmation before logging you out which may prevent a few accidents.

You can grab a deb file for Ubuntu/Debian or the source to try it out directly from GitHub. For more information, see the official Lutris website.

is there a way to make it discover all your steam games and just at them to the list? or must you do it manually?

Iv'e caught it adding games itself sometimes but never correctly.

Looks like you can install the beta version from the AUR.

But it only syncs the library partially, not all the games are there... and additionally you cannot get it to sync multiple accounts.

I haven't tried any recent builds, but last I saw it only looks for games in your default Steam library folder.
