@Strykar Nope, see

You can grab compiled packages from

@thaewrapt, I see, you might be correct. The prebuilt package is not a good candidate for packaging for a couple of reasons. First of all, it is built using Lutris's runtime, and as such inherits the same issues as Proton, namely it is at its best when running inside that runtime. Also, although I might be wrong here, I haven't found any mention of Lutris being able to use a system-wide installation directory in the same way Steam can. For these reasons, I believe that packaging those binaries is pointless and they should be managed by Lutris itself.

I had a system crash over the weekend, and after a reinstall of arch, I'm trying to install this package, yet I can't get the keys imported. I keep getting "server indicated a failure"

any ideas what to do?

@exylic I see, I have already updated the package to not remove them. Please test again and report back if you encounter issues with building software on top of it.

@loathingkernel I'm not sure about this package specifically. But I'm using it because it includes fsync patches, which improve performance for certain multithreaded audio plugins (as claimed here

@exylic they are removed for space saving. I could include them back in, but given the modifications made to this wine towards gaming, is the the best choice for audio related applications?

I have no experience with such applications, is this version of wine indeed better for them? If it is, I will happily add them back.

Is there a reason this removes the wine library files with

find "$pkgdir"/usr/lib{,32}/wine -iname "*.a" -delete
find "$pkgdir"/usr/lib{,32}/wine -iname "*.def" -delete


These are required by certain Wine native integration wrappers, such as that included in openmpt.

@kogeke this version of wine is highly targeted towards gaming. Regular desktop applications have had a number of issues with it in the past. I can't debug your issue remotely, if you can find what is causing it I could patch this version to work but that's as far as I can go.

If you need to run desktop applications I would suggest using wine-staging as your system wine and installing wine-ge-custom-opt and adapt your setup to that for gaming.

@loathingkernel RadiAnt DICOM Viewer, with wine-stagging it works fine, with old version wine-ge-custom it also worked fine

@kogeke Which application is crashing exactly? Wine is an application that runs other applications.

kogeke commented on 2023-10-23 14:13 (UTC)

After last update app crashes immediately when i try to use two-fingers swipe (zoom-in/zoom-out). Arch linux 6.5.8-arch1-1, GNOME 45.0 Wayland
