Lutris not starting

Hello ! Im new to Garuda And I really been enjoying it I think all the optimizations it comes with they help me alot with gaming on linux ,
I recently updated and I think lutris is broken I did all I think possible deleted all files related to it and still when I try to launch it , it loads for 1 or 2 secs and crashes doesnt open..

Post errors.


where do I see these errors ? im sorry for wasting time I am still a big noob ofc

Start the program from the terminal.


Traceback (most recent call last):

well I went to the software center and I installed python lxml package and I guess that fixed it but weird why this happened after update


Good stuff. :+1:


thx for the tip though to check in terminal ! :sweat_smile:


It looks like a packaging issue - Lutris picked up a new dependency (python-lxml) but the package maintainer didn't spot it and so it isn't yet a dependency of the package.


Hey this guide worked for me link

just install from aur

Hi there, welcome.
Thanks for sharing the link but, please, do not post on old topics.
Things might and should have changed after so many months.
