[SOLVED] Lutris 0.5.0-1 errors out with message and cannot be launched


Good morning, dudes and dudettes. I am running ArchLinux and I am getting the following stack trace after just having installed 0.5.0-1. Error message reads as follows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/lutris”, line 31, in
from lutris.gui.application import Application
File “/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/lutris/gui/”, line 34, in

File “/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/lutris/gui/widgets/”, line 4, in
from PIL import Image
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘PIL’

It looks like there is some problem with the image import. Has anyone run into this and is it an error on my end or do we need a patch for this?

Have a good day!


I managed to solve it, sort of, by downgrading the package using the following command.

sudo pacman -U “path to package”

I had to download it from the archive at this url:

And now I can play using the old version.


Yay! Installing python-pillow made it work for me. I am using Xfce 4
