Regular readers will know by now how much I've enjoyed using Lutris to bring together my game library across Steam, GOG and more. It just recently put out the big update!

There's something so satisfying about having all games on your system, under one roof regardless of where you purchased them. It's the anti-launcher of launchers and it's slick.

Lutris 0.5.0 release highlights include:

  • A much improved user interface.
  • GOG support, which allows you to login to GOG and it will download games for you.
  • The ability to limit the FPS in games when libstrangle is available.
  • Search for games from the Lutris website, directly in the Lutris client to install them (much nicer!).
  • And loads more!

It's crazy really how long GOG have dragged their feet on getting Galaxy on Linux, so Lutris should help a lot there for those who do shop across different stores. Personally, it's made me more likely to purchase from GOG as keeping tabs on manual downloads is a hassle I don't want.

Find the release notes here, official site here. Looks like their official site just had a makeover too.

pete910Anyone have this running on KDE, complains of no "Gnome-desktop available" for me.

Edit:

Seems it's a bug

Can confirm with i3 its the same.

Yeah, I'm using i3 and have the same issue. They had a few issues open on GitHub which were closed, with the devs just telling people to install GNOME. This is why I no longer use Lutris, it seems they added GNOME as a mandatory dependency. Shame because it's really, really cool.

raneonAs soon as Lutris will show all my Steam games, it could be interesting, but it shows only the installed ones :-(

It's in the configuration dialog, you can either show all games or only the installed ones.

Fixed with

sudo pacman -S gnome-desktop python-pillow

gnome-desktop is actually a 500kb lib not the entire Gnome de

Thanks, not sure if this is new or not, but I missed that!

Now I just need my 2 other Steam accounts to show up too ;-)

Blame Arch for the name. It's a library not the entire desktop.

Ah I see, thanks. I'll have to try it out again, thanks!
