Lutris failing to start after fresh install on Mint 20

Hi guys, I’m a newbie to linux.

  • Installed Mint 20 recently to run on an older laptop
  • Doesn’t want to start - hangs on the ‘Lutris is starting’ modal with stalled progress bar
  • lutris --submit-issue fails to start and does not generate a file.

Output of lutris -d can be seen here: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/YP3V2kvW6B/

Further info:

  • Installed wine using the instructions seen here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian
  • Used debian instructions
  • After this, I ran the wget https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/538903130704838656/796102070825779250/dxvk_versions.json -P $HOME/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk to see if that would help. It seems to have disappeared the DXVK logs I was facing earlier.

Appreciate any help. Thanks!

Despite this having been reported as a bug some ago this problem is still with us. Anyway, if you close that window the normal window should pop up.

Hah, now I feel like a fool for not trying to just close it already. Thank you.
