Why does lutris recommend to install Wine Staging to system too?


Does lutris miss something then, if you don’t install wine staging on your system too?

I did install on lutris app tkg 4.1, what lutris need from wine staging on system-wide?


This is why:

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

Specifically “install-recommends”. This is installing all of the recommended libraries/supporting utilities of that package.


It recommends installing Wine-Staging because most Lutris users (from my personal point of view) use it as a good Wine front end. We had a lot of bugs where people wanted to use Wine scripts and simply didn’t have it installed.

Now the package recommends wine-staging because forcing users who won’t use Wine to install it would be bad.
