How to stop flickering of install with Epic Game's Launcher on Linux?



  • How do you get the Epic Game's Launcher to work correctly on Linux? I followed what was on the Manjaro forums: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/howto-installing-epic-games-and-other-games-via-wine-without-lutris-and-proton/92236

    It shows using Wine Tricks: winetricks -q d3dcompiler_43 d3dcompiler_47 d3dx9 corefonts cjkfonts faudio

    Then there are some common solutions for crashing games:

    sudo pacman -S --needed \
    glew \
    lib32-dbus-glib \
    lib32-freeglut \
    lib32-glew \

    dnf clean packages

    After I installed everything the Epic Games client stopped glitching and started acting normal.

    If you have a command for another system please add it!

    Here is the list of dependencies that are needed by Epic for their client: You need to installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2010, 2012,2013 and 2015 These should be installed into the Wine prefix.
