The launcher files are installed under the group "games". Please add your user to this group with usermod -a -G games, otherwise the launcher will not be able to auto-update itself properly.

Hello it fails with error ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

It seems that hash should be updated again

Genesis commented on 2022-03-16 13:24 (UTC)

@gloomy Yes, every time the launcher gets updated I need to update the package, that's why it's happening every once in a while. Thanks for the notice !

gloomy commented on 2022-03-16 13:22 (UTC)

There's a problem with the md5sum again.

petitbelze commented on 2022-01-28 08:23 (UTC)

Thank you you're awesome !

Genesis commented on 2022-01-28 07:00 (UTC)

@petitbelze Happens when the launcher has an update, I updated the package, thanks !

petitbelze commented on 2022-01-27 23:41 (UTC)

Hello @Genesis ! There is a problem with the checksum for the 3.6.0-2 x86_64 <3

Genesis commented on 2021-12-19 17:32 (UTC)

@icancto Yes, Wine is marked as an optional dependency in order to play Dofus, same goes for Java in order to play Wakfu. Wasn't aware that multilib needed to be enabled though.

icancto commented on 2021-12-19 17:29 (UTC)

it's worth noting that multilib needs to be enabled, and wine needs to be installed to play dofus

Hi @Genesis, New version (3.3.10)

It's possible to install Ankama Launcher from Steam by installing the game Wakfu: (Works with Wakfu, i didn't check for other game)

Genesis commented on 2021-05-28 04:22 (UTC)

@afsn @Alpha The package has been updated, thanks for the heads up !

There is a problem with the checksum for the 3.3.9 version. The one given in PKGBuild is the one for the 3.3.7.

Here is the new one : 1be88033ec7a0d24df578ebc32434a6e ankama-launcher-3.3.9-x86_64.AppImage

afsn commented on 2021-05-27 15:30 (UTC)

Hi, the new version is returning

==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums... ankama-launcher-3.3.9-x86_64.AppImage ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Genesis commented on 2021-04-17 08:03 (UTC)

@chriseggroll It happens to me too from time to time, I have no idea if it's related to the package or the launcher itself

chriseggroll commented on 2021-04-16 22:38 (UTC)

my saved credentials seem to be disappearing at times, any clue what would cause this?

Genesis commented on 2021-02-27 18:31 (UTC)

@Mirai009 The package version has been updated. Please use the "Flag package out-of-date" feature on packages to notify the maintainer that its package is out of date instead of commenting

Mirai009 commented on 2021-02-27 17:27 (UTC)

still the same error

@genesis I didn't tested it and basically given up on using Dofus on Linux but I will try next time, simer Albert indeed

Genesis commented on 2020-11-27 05:24 (UTC)

@mWarius Done, thanks !

Thanks @Genesis to keep package update.

Need to update checksum for installers for 3.1.0 :


Genesis commented on 2020-11-03 22:45 (UTC) It works fine for me. Maybe try to reinstall the package ? commented on 2020-11-03 21:54 (UTC)

@Genesis does it work for you or do you have an infinite load ? It was ok before the update...

Genesis commented on 2020-11-03 21:46 (UTC) Done, thanks ! commented on 2020-11-03 21:43 (UTC) (edited on 2020-11-03 23:12 (UTC) by

Need to update checksum for installers for 3.0.6 :


Genesis commented on 2020-10-06 14:53 (UTC)

@regazzoj Yes, Wine does ask if you want to install Mono and Gecko when you first use a new Wine prefix, because these two are packages that are often needed when running Windows executables.

regazzoj commented on 2020-10-06 14:51 (UTC)

@Genesis it was perfectly clear for me. I thought it was wine-mono and wine-gecko because when I tried to launch Dofus game without any wine installations, a popup appeared with information about missing packages, and it was talking about wine-mono. So I installed it, but it doesn't fix my issue. After that I looked for wine pakcages which could fix my problem and found out that wine-gecko was 'Wine's built-in replacement for Microsoft's Internet Explorer' so I installed it, and I was able to receive emails. When I have time, I'll try to install Ankama-launcher on a VM, and see if I missed something. Anyway, thanks for your answers !

Genesis commented on 2020-10-01 13:16 (UTC) (edited on 2020-10-01 13:17 (UTC) by Genesis)

@regazzoj I took a couple hours to try and troubleshoot your issue. I was able to reproduce it on a clean Manjaro VM, and the installation of wine-gecko didn't fix it (wine-mono isn't relevant since Dofus doesn't use .NET). It looks like the Dofus client loads a webpage in the background that triggers a certificate email, when you need a confirmation code to unlock a protected account.
However, I was able to find out that at least one of the optional dependencies for wine fixes the issue, allows the client to load webpages and triggers the email.
The thing is, there are so many optional dependencies to check one after the other to find the one (or the ones) that are mandatory to make the certificate email work that I just don't have the courage to test them all. :/
Another thing worth noting : if you can't load the in-game shop, you won't receive the certificate email, since the in-game shop is also a webpage.

Right now, I won't add wine-gecko to the dependencies, as it didn't fix the issue on my side. If someone finds the exact optional Wine dependency that allows the client to load webpages, I'll add this Wine dependency to the package dependencies.

I hope this whole explanation was understandable !

regazzoj commented on 2020-09-28 18:20 (UTC)

@Genesis, I fixed my issue installing wine, wine-mono and wine-gecko. This should be written somewhere as dependencies. Hope it helps.

Genesis commented on 2020-09-27 13:08 (UTC)

@regazzoj I'm pretty sure this has absolutely nothing to do with this package. Maybe you'd have better luck asking on the official forums.

regazzoj commented on 2020-09-27 13:06 (UTC)

Hi everyone, I have a problem with Ankama Shield and certificates on Manjaro. When I install it on my computer, I never received any email for certificate. So I log in Ankama Launcher, run Dofus, and then it warns me to add the computer with a certificate, but I never receive any email with code. Do you have any idea what should do ? Maybe I don't have all the depencies...

Genesis commented on 2020-08-17 09:09 (UTC)

@nandagos Thanks, I've updated the package !

nandagos commented on 2020-08-17 09:06 (UTC)

Hello ! Checksum of ankama-launcher-3.0.0-x86_64.AppImage seems to be troubling again

Genesis commented on 2020-08-05 12:11 (UTC)

@TraqKay Thanks for the heads up, I've updated the package !

TraqKay commented on 2020-08-05 11:51 (UTC)

Need to update checksum in PKGBUILD, ankama installer file changed

Temp fix (for x86_64): md5sums_x86_64=('121da65e54f3ff7943d60d9f7c0b131e') => md5sums_x86_64=('9a3630f2f01da494488400ca02a1a5f1')

Genesis commented on 2020-04-21 06:40 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-21 06:41 (UTC) by Genesis)

@bkb The Linux version of Dofus is indeed using Wine. If you take a look at the Dofus version the Launcher is downloading, you'll see a file that starts the Windows version of the game on Linux, using Wine.

In fact, running Dofus on Linux through Wine yields better performance than the native Linux version. Also, you're able to use DXVK to enable GPU rendering in Wine, and this allows for a smooth experience, close to the one you'd be having on Windows, so running Dofus on Wine is really a good idea.

As for the 56% issue, I've made a post (in French) explaining how to fix it, while we wait for Ankama to fix this issue in the Launcher.

Here's a link to the post :

bkb commented on 2020-04-20 19:22 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-20 19:30 (UTC) by bkb)

Why does he wine dofus?

Linux version of Dofus is available

(+ halt at 56% at Dofus load)

Genesis commented on 2020-04-07 10:35 (UTC)

@Satro I'm currently on the wine-staging AUR package (so 5.5-1 too) and I'm able to run the game just fine. Maybe there's something else going on on your side that's preventing the game from running smoothly ?

Satro commented on 2020-04-07 10:30 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-07 10:31 (UTC) by Satro)

There might be a problem with the latest version of Wine (5.5-1), I had the following Wine error : "kernelbase.dll" failed to initialize when launching Dofus. To work around the problem, downgrade your Wine package to the previous version (5.4-1).

Genesis commented on 2020-03-25 13:41 (UTC)

@Satro Good call ! I added fuse as a dependency. Thanks !

Satro commented on 2020-03-25 13:21 (UTC)

I think there is a missing dependency. Upon starting the launcher after the installation, I got :

dlopen(): error loading

AppImages require FUSE to run. 
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage 
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option. 
for more information

As required, I installed Fuse and it works fine.

Skysave commented on 2020-03-20 15:37 (UTC)

Thanks @Genisis, the solution works !

Genesis commented on 2020-03-20 13:24 (UTC)

Hi @Skydave ! If you're french, I've already covered these issues on the official Dofus forums and explain how to solve them temporarily, while waiting for an official fix. Unfortunately, I don't have any other solution at the moment.

Here's a link to a post I made :

Skysave commented on 2020-03-20 11:40 (UTC)

I recently install ankama-launcher, open-jdk and wine, when I launched from launcher Dofus the loading screen stuck to 56%. But when I open directly dofus with wine, the game can charge and go to the login. I think that it is the parse of the login that cause the problem.

Genesis commented on 2019-11-05 10:04 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-05 10:05 (UTC) by Genesis)

Hi @Mathius and thanks for your feedback !

I've made some changes to the PKGBUILD to add p7zip as a make dependency and install a script in /usr/bin to run Ankama Launcher from $PATH.

Hope these changes will make it easier for you and the others that don't use .desktop files ! Let me know if there's anything else ;)

Mathius commented on 2019-11-05 02:44 (UTC)

After installing the package, I look at the code of the package and write down 2 points: - The first point is the dependency of the p7zip package (Installed on most installations but perhaps specify it more precisely) - The second point is personal opinion but in order to facilitate the subsequent launch of the launcher should it not ideally create a symbolic link to it that would be stored in '/bin' ?

Sincerely, A user a little too curious

Genesis commented on 2019-07-23 09:46 (UTC)

@Zyfarok Thanks for the heads up ! I've updated the package. Don't hesitate to use the "Flag package out-of-date" feature if you have access to it !

Zyfarok commented on 2019-07-22 15:16 (UTC) (edited on 2019-07-22 15:19 (UTC) by Zyfarok)

I guess the launcher AppImage was updated :

==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums...
    ankama-launcher-2.9.12-x86_64.AppImage ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Genesis commented on 2019-06-01 22:31 (UTC)

@Kohega I noticed it too, I don't know if it's related to the launcher itself or the package/the way it is installed. Since it's an AppImage, there not much to do to install/run it though.

commented on 2019-06-01 11:53 (UTC)

Hello, is it normal that I need to login everytime I restart the computer ? I'm using 2-Pass authentification so I need to login two times eveytime.
