[SOLVED] Yet another "Lutris doesn't launch anymore"

Ubuntu 20.04.

Lutris stopped launching for me a few days ago. Instead of checking here (my bad, I know) I uninstalled and reinstalled everything (including Wine and repositories) a few times already, but still no luck getting it to run.

After checking here, I’ve done the fix of installing python-xlml, and of downloading the json file into $HOME/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk, still nothing.

This is what I’m currently getting when running from the terminal:

(base) fede@GLaDOS:~$ lutris

That was what I got before just terminating it from terminal.

Same here.
i did the following to fix this:

sudo apt purge lutris
rm -rf ~/.config/lutris ~/.local/share/lutris ~/.cache/lutris
sudo apt install lutris (DONT RUN IT YET!)

wget https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/538903130704838656/796102070825779250/dxvk_versions.json -P $HOME/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk

now run it (preferably in a terminal) and wait until its finished creating its runners and such, it can take a while, be patient!

Still didn’t work :frowning:. After it did some writing of icon files, I got:

I killed it about an hour and a half after the last line was printed, so it was pretty much stuck there by then.

is this normal?
