Hello, so I have had my Steam deck for a little bit now and am attempting to install Lutris with the new flat pack that recently released. I am not new to Linux but also definitely not well versed either.
I was able to install the flatpack fine, and when I launch it, it states that it wants me to install the GL compat extension due to it being missing. Copy the console command it wants me to enter so I can go do that.
From there go to the terminal, plunk it in then get error: No remote refs found similar to ‘flathub’.
I assume I am missing something completely simple, but just cannot seem to figure it out. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
all of this just so I can play some diablo lmao
Hi, did you activated the beta stuff?
Check if you performed all the steps here:
Yeah so I followed that, but am still running into the same error. I decided to try and run it as –user flathub-beta and got further. But, it cannot find anything for gnome version 42 under that.
I also did the following after some light googling of
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
However, once again same thing on how there are no remote refs found similar to flathub.
I also verified by doing flatpak remote that the name flathub is indeed there for system but not under user. Perhaps I need to remove the user part?
I am basically documenting everything I do so that hopefully if someone else finds this it helps. Removing the –user part of the command did actually allow me to install the correct Gnome .
Alrighty, hit a point of being stuck again. Got all the gnome stuff installed and what not, as well as verified by attempting to install a second time and it skipped. When attempting to run flatpak install --user flathub-beta net.lutris.Lutris//beta I get a new error now being:
error: The application net.lutris.Lutris/x86_64/beta requires the runtime org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/42 which was not found
However, I confirmed earlier that it is indeed installed on the system.
Went back into the discover store and installed lutris again that way and it finally opened! Progress!
What a roller coaster, I’m invested now. Let us know if the games work
Yeah at this point I was finally able to get BNet installed and am currently installing Diablo now as I can. I had to use flatseal application on Steam Deck Discover to allow Lutris to actually access the SD card. Will post later once it is finally installed and hopefully works.
So eventually it worked, took a lot more tweaking by re-assigning the application in lutris to launch Diablo 3 directly. As well as configuring BNet to close immediately after opening a game or else there would be a weird flicker thing. Thankfully someone made a good controller layout that does work for the game after getting used to it a little bit. Runs at a solid 60fps as well at medium settings until stuff on the screen gets crazy then there are some dips.
