Lutris is compatible with any up-to-date Linux system. It relies on Python 3 and GTK libraries and will run on any desktop environment. Packages are provided for current Linux distributions. In some cases, Lutris will be available without adding additional software sources but if that's not the case, follow the instructions specific to your distribution below.

Make sure to install Wine and drivers!
If you plan on playing games for Windows, to ensure a smooth experience, install a recent version of Wine on your system. This will provide all necessary dependency as Lutris cannot ship with every component in its runtime. When playing games lutris will use a custom version of Wine optimized for games.

    • Tarball packageTarball

    Lutris is available as a tar.xz package. You can run the project directly from the extracted archive but you might not have all features installed such as the browser integration or xboxdrv support. You'll need to make sure you have the necessary dependencies for Python 3 (PyGObject3 and PyYAML).
    Warning: Please do not use install to install Lutris. It does not fully install lutris, some aspects are handled by the distribution's package manager. Additionally, Python's setuptools do not allow to easily uninstall software installed in such a manner.

    • SourceSource

    Lutris is constantly evolving. If you want to try out the latest features or help with the development, you can get Lutris from Github: git clone
    You do not need to install Lutris to run it, cd in the source folder and run ./bin/lutris -d
    Warning: If Lutris isn't installed from your package manager already, some features such as browser integration or xboxdrv support will be missing. We recommend you keep the latest release version installed, even if you plan on using the development branch.
    Please report all problems on the bugtracker or on IRC (#lutris on
