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 environment). The following distributions are currently supported: Ubuntu 16.04, 17.04, 17.10 and 18.04, Debian 8 and 9, Fedora 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28, 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:

    For Debian
    echo "deb ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
    wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    For Ubuntu & derivatives like Pop!_OS, Elementary OS, Linux Mint…
    ver=$(lsb_release -sr); if [ $ver != "18.04" -a $ver != "17.10" -a $ver != "17.04" -a $ver != "16.04" ]; then ver=18.04; fi echo "deb$ver/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
    wget -q$ver/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    After setting up the repository
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install lutris

    • 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 recommended you keep the latest version installed, even if you're going to run the development branch.
    Please report all problems on the bugtracker or on IRC (#lutris on Freenode)
