Import game with the same configuration as library install


As see here instruction to import a game by adding it manually, still I need to set all configurations for the new install. Setting it manually defeats the purpose of Lutris at the basic thing of handling this for me. In the case of three specific games, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and Path of Exile, how would I go about copying the game to a new install? I’m currently running Steam version for PoE so no folder in Games Home folder but I could do the standalone version if I can back up the game.


copy the Lutris “Games” folder to the new computer, at the same place.
copy this folders to the new computer in your new personal home:
I never tested, but this should work.

[Solved] Exporting games to different linux PC

This are the bash scripts:

this requires a setup with following folders: /disk/Lutris/conf/.local/.share/

Lutris bkp

cp -var ~/Games $BKP
cp -var ~/.config/lutris $BKP/conf/.config
cp -var ~/.cache/lutris $BKP/conf/.cache
cp -var ~/.local/.share/lutris $BKP/conf/.local/.share

Lutris rtr

cp -var $BKP/Games ~/
cp -var $BKP/conf/ ~/
