Where does lutris install my games to?


#1

i don’t see a .lutris directory in my home folder so i was wondering where they went to when they were installed…


#2

You have the option called “Default installation folder” in your System options – configurable globally and per runner. And Lutris generally asks you for location every time you install a game (providing the value of said option as default).

Also, .<program-name> files/folders are cluttering your $HOME, so most new applications place their configs into either .config/ or .local/share/. Some engines even make their own subdirectories for whatever reason (for instance, all Unity games put configs and save files inside ~/.config/unity3d/).

ok. so where are the default folders for the games i installed through lutis then?


#4

Er… They’re written in that option?

If you installed some game without paying attention and want to know where they went, check the “Game options” tab of the game config; you’ll find the place either in the “Executable” field (the game binary is likely to be inside the game folder) or in the “Working directory”/“Wine prefix” (if the game is run from relative path). This does not apply only to Steam/Winesteam games (because Lutris doesn’t control their location, it’s in the Steam settings).

I see it no there’s a folder named GAMES and i was just too tired to see it. After some well needed rest it is plain as day!
