Hello, I installed Dosbox Staging - it was quite difficult because DIscover didnt see it… After googling I found out that I have to add flatpak repository, so i made it according to Arch wiki and then was possible to install it by Discover.
And my issue is that now it is not visible in system application menu - under games like basic Dosbox nor other under-menu. But even worse is that I can not find “open with dosbox staging” in right click context menu when I click on .bat or .exe file. It is main reason why i need this version of dosbox because this content menu item allows to run dos programs without long and difficult setting of Dosbox.
OK, but if it is in repo, why discover didnt show it?
So what software center would be working correctly? Or it is necessary always search by cli? I dont even know how to do it.
OK, i found Octopi where I found this package correctly. And installed and now the package is showed in software menu.
But still - I opened some game through context menu and said “open with other application” and all ok… But next time I had to make it the same way again… My expectation was that system will remember this option and will offer me… I mean not “allways open with”, just offer me or “open with dosbox staging” or “with wine”.
Its very pity that Discover dont see all packages.
Yes but I dont want open all .exe and .bat by dosbox staging. But I want have possibility to choose it immediatelly in menu. In Opensuse such item occured in menu after first launching of appliation - here stays only “launch with wine”
If It will helpful with finding the solution, I just sent 10 € to support Garuda Linux (and 1€ tip to Open Collective).
I am preparing this computer for my son, its his first “gaming” computer for simplier games - and I would like to make it perferct for using, because he is only 8 and will be not able to make difficult settings by himself…
