Epic store on wine grey screen

Hi, I’ve been using Epic Store on Lutris for a while and it worked perfectly. This morning, though, I had to reset my computer and now if I install Epic store it opens inside a wine grey screen, and not as a stand-alone app. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Edit: when I had the version I want, I was able to look all over the drives, even on other drives, so I installed epic on my main drive and games on the secondary one. Now I can’t see outside the directory Epic is installed


On Lutris, when you select Epic Games Launcher, beside the Play button you’ll see an upward triangle. Click and select Configure there. In the configuration dialog, got to Runner Options, and there scroll down and you’ll find an option Windowed (virtual desktop) enabled by default ( it wouldn’t be earlier as far as I can remember!). Disable that and you’ll have Epic Launcher running on the “real” desktop.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much, I really didn’t notice that option, now it works perfectly!
