[Solved] Fallout 76


I am on Ubuntu 18.04 and I cannot get fallout to run. I have a nvidia 1060 3gb card and lutris will only launch the bethesda launcher not fallout… the following is the error log:

fortunately I was able to figure that out before my post got approved…
I can now get the launcher going and run fallout alongside it.
I can log in and even get to the loading screen of fallout to join a world and to start the game but it crashes before loading and the log file will not load for me. Is there a log file I can access from cmd instead of gui?


I figured it out… I wasn’t launching fallout from the lutris launcher so it wasn’t using the wine config from lutris… learning experience I guess. Quite amazing what is automatically done behind the scenes in Windows but I’ve been wanting to switch for years… This is exciting because now I can. Thanks for your help!
