Lutris, Which is a popular tool for installing and managing games on Linux, has recently been updated to version 0.4.21, bringing some useful improvements and bug fixes to make it easier to use. In addition, the Lutris repository has been updated to support the latest Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish).
The latest Lutris 0.4.21 adds some checks to ensure that the game is properly configured before attempting to run the game. This includes checking whether the DXVK version entered by the user exists, whether it displays a warning that Wine is not installed on the system (so you have installed all Wine dependencies), and when using DXVK, check the Vulkan loader (prohibited to start) games (if they cannot be detected) , And check for the existence of executable files after the installation is complete.
Another improvement in the Lutris update is the addition of the Esync checkbox in the Runner option, which can be used to easily Synchronize Patches (which can improve the performance of certain games) related: How to use Lutris to play Windows games on Linux (Quick Start Guide)
Other changes include:
- Proton and SteamWorks in the blacklist appear as games in Lutris
- The sidebar now shows the number of installed games for each runner and platform
- Visual improvements to the liquor download dialog (previously quite confusing)
- Fixed an issue where the DXVK version could not be updated when the dxvk directory did not exist
- Fixed an issue where viewers would still sync Steam games even if the feature is disabled

It should be noted that currently The problem Even if Lutris 0.4.21 is installed, it will not detect the Vulkan loader (at least in Ubuntu and Linux Mint). The problem should be resolved as soon as possible. There is a check box to ignore this warning, so despite this error, you can still play the game.
