Do you have Vulkan installed? I presume that installing the nvidia drivers installs kernel driver, opengl libraries and now vulkan libraries, but I haven’t had one in many years and I can’t say how a distro’s nvidia packages will be (i.e. it could be a separate package)
You could try appending -opengl to the command that launches the epic games store executable in the game options in Lutris to see if it launches for you. After the quotes, in a path with spaces.
Ok so just for the lols I installed both the Nvidia-glx-driver and the Nvidia-beta-driver at the same time (I had assumed I should uninstall one before installing the other but, yano, idrk why I think that so I figured shot in the dark, why not both?), and it shows the “vulkan not installed” but then lets me launch and acts the same as when I hadn’t had the beta drivers installed.
lol… jesus, okay, so realizing I can install two sets of drivers side by side made me re-evaluate, and I started going through the many many many different drivers available via the Solus Software center, and waaaaaaay down the list I see “nvidia-glx-32bit-driver” and I’m like “…that’s not included in the nvidia-glx-driver”? So I grab that, and it’s working.
Ahh, I just assumed it would default to directx probing and you’d need the Vulkan back end. (I don’t actually have Epic Games Store… I don’t buy their games).
It’s bollocks how distros split packages (though it makes sense for the 32 bit libs here). Last time I had an Nvidia card, I used to just run the Nvidia installer. I build my own kernels so I always had the configured source tree so the nvidia module could build, it would do that, replace the OpenGL libraries and at the end it would ask me if I wanted the 32 bit Nvidia libraries , y or n.
Yeah, thinking about it it makes sense the 32bit is seperate, but it just didn’t even cross my mind, and after scrolling for a bit it was all like… advanced use drivers, or legacy drivers, so seeing the 32bit way below that was wholly unexpected.
