[Solved] Wine missing Freetype library


Hello all,
When starting up games in Lutris I’m receiving multiple errors, the one I’ve really worked to fix is this Freetype font missing error, I’ve used synaptic to download the files from but nothing has changed, my terminal’s output is below, any help is appreciated, thank you. :slight_smile:

Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to
use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
or equal to 2.0.5.


You are probably missing a some 32 bit library probably you have the 64bit one installed.
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install libfreetype6:i386


You were right! It freezes up a little now but otherwise is great!
