Quoting: GuestDying Light works without problem on Linux through Steam Play.
How do you start it through Steam Play?

edit: jfc...nevermind. Somehow I wasn't in the steam beta :/

The Bronx workaround works for Dead Island Definitive Edition as well.

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Radeon RX Vega 56
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5
LLVM 7.0.0
Mesa 18.2.8

also works for me on DIDE
i have DIDE riptide installed with proton

both games use the same engine. performance seems also the same, native and proton
only thing i noticed is, that the GPU fan spins around 2700rpm on native and 2100rpm on proton

This fix does not work for me, using 18.04 LTS Intel i7 8565U and the Intel HD Graphics (3x8 Whisky Lake GT2). It just hangs the entire X11 environment and requires a hard reset. If I remove the file suggested by @Bronx, DY crashes as soon a the white progress bar completes. I am using the X-SWAT PPA and the <MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=450 %command%> in the "Set Game Launch Options"

I've filed a ticket and sent them all the relevant files.


EDIT: I fixed it. I downloaded and compiled this shim: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107990#c8
Also, is an explanation why the MESA causes the game to fail on launch.

Interesting, how is the performance on your igpu?

Quoting: benjusmaximusI simplified the process and uploaded the specific file you need so all people have to do it's just extract this file into the dying light folder.

Old thread I know but still wanna thank you for this :D.
Works on arch like a charm :D

For anyone wondering, this is still relevant and still required on Fedora 32:

Quoting: MushufazaWe have hope :D, our dear Techland, I hear my pleas :3, thanks to Techland for the management <3!

Dear Daniel Monaga,

Dying Light uses lspci to detect your video card (at least when running on mesa). Since on most distributions this binary is located in /usr/sbin/, the game cannot find it, reports no video memory and crashes.
Try creating a symlink "ln -s /usr/sbin/lspci /usr/bin/lspci" and start the game, please.

Best Regards
Technical Support Team

Thank you for contacting Techland Technical Support.

Dear Techland, on ubuntu lspci comes by default in "/usr/bin/", just in case I returned to install "pciutils" who brings lspci, but it is still closing does not pass the black loading screen,
 please I would appreciate it if you try in a clean installation of ubuntu 18.04 with oibaf ppa. please read this https://www.gamingonlinux.com/forum/topic/2766/post_id=16370

Attentive to your comments, Daniel Monaga.

No other changes are necessary. libglvnd is no longer an issue.

Hi, enable the Steam Linux Runtime container, it should fix it. Right click -> Properties, at the bottom tick the box for Steam Play and select Steam Linux Runtime. It keeps the official Linux build but uses the newer container system, which prevents dependency issues.
