When i try to start the game, the logs show this:

It works until it's actually starting the game, so it goes through Rockstar Games Launcher

I am using Kali Linux 2021.2 with GNOME, kernel version 5.10.0-kali7-amd64.

Yep, i actually had to run it once with wine to get DirectX installed, but it works now. Kinda laggy, probably the nvidia driver

I used lutris 6.0 it worked

But may be the keyboard is not working? Just Checking, cause when I created this post, Lutris wine didn't support keyboard inputs in GTA 5

That can be, i haven't checked the keyboard, i would use proton experimental but it doesn't work at all

Strange, i used now proton experimental at another computer, the launcher started, but then it comes:
unable to launche game, please verify your game data

Might be better to report this at the actual software bugtracker? :eyes:

:slight_smile:

Now if GTA is working fine with Lutris Wine, and the keyboard issue has been fixed. Then you can continue using it.
Did you try running with stock wine? First do that atleast once, and then again try with stable or experimental version with proton. It might..... work
