EA App/Lutris (Mint 21.2)

Hello :wave:

First i have to specify that i am french and beginner in Linux
Im on Cinnamon Mint 21.2 Victoria

I’m trying to play the sims 4 :

first I installed/tried to run it by steam/proton 7 and it launch EA App in black screen and crash 2 or 3mn later with no error code or report
(Impossible to launch the ea app screen in proton 8/experimental)

With Lutris :

When i add EA App in lutris by the + button, i have EA App icon in Library/Games and in Runners/Wine, but when i try to start it nothing appears (i’ve been waiting for 15mn…)

When i try to install it by the website, (EA App - Lutris) i follow the instruction in lutris and a few minutes later i have this error message :
TypeError(“wineexec() got an unexpected keyword argument ‘return_code’”)

I don’t understand… and help would be appreciated :slight_smile:
Thanks all.

I was hoping someone had addressed the issue you mentioned. I am having the same problems.

Just installed the EA app last night. Using wine-ge-8-25-x86_64 runner it runs fine. Also, when you get to the log in screen after install, click the X (close the EA App), then click CLOSE on the install screen. From there you should be able to run EA App just fine.

In about lutris, make sure you are running 0.5.14. If not download and install the 0.5.14 deb from the downloads page → Ubuntu → git
