Lutris should be compatible with most up-to-date Linux distributions, it relies on the Python language and Gnome 3 libraries (but will run fine under any desktop environmment). The following distributions are currently supported: Ubuntu 16.04, 17.04 and 17.10 Debian 8 and 9, Fedora 24 and 25, openSUSE 13.2, Leap 42 and Tumbleweed, Arch Linux and Gentoo.
Packages compatible with Debian and Ubuntu are available on the openSUSE build service.
You can add a repository to receive automatic updates:
echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_9.0/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
wget -q http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
ver=$(lsb_release -sr); if [ $ver != "17.10" -a $ver != "17.04" -a $ver != "16.04" ]; then ver=16.04; fi
echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/xUbuntu_$ver/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
wget -q http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/xUbuntu_$ver/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
After setting up the repository
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lutris

You can get Lutris from the AUR repositories: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lutris/.
Lutris is available in portage tree: https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/games-util/lutris.

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 Python3: PyGObject3, pyxdg and PyYAML.
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 https://github.com/lutris/lutris.git
