Red Dead Redemption 2

Hi there,

Good news everyone:

There should be a way to play RDR2 on Linux (finally).

My problem is, I do not have the steam version of this game. Only on Rocketlauncher. Could some guide me on how to install it? Shall I use the normal installer from lutris and swticht to the proton version?
Till now i recieved the error “Proton: No compat data path?”.

Any Help would be apprieciated.


I think you should firstly install Rockstarlauncher via wine runner and then do everything as shown on the screenshot.

But I don’t really sure it’s going to work.

In short: download the launcher from the official site, adjust all the settings, and then download the game through it. ProtonDB currently has only 1 user who managed to run the game, so good luck!

I installed it with the rockstar launcher, copied the proton version and changed it in lutris.

It works pretty good!

Thank you for this!


What exactly did you do? Can you provide some details as the big picture doesn’t tell me much.
I only have the game on Rockstar Launcher, so no idea how to copy anything out of it from Steam/Proton.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Linkosz,

If the game does not start, it might be an option to set the process on stop and on start again using:
PID=$(pgrep RDR2.exe); kill -s SIGSTOP $PID; kill -s SIGCONT $PID

The Process tends to freeze very often.
All the other Playaround is not needed anymore:
