I couldnt edit the .bashrc file even with sudoedit because the file was in a writable directory, so had to revoke write permission from home/mapsilva before i could edit .bashrc.
Baiscally i was getting java error because java was unable to edit a file in home/mapsilva and was getting this error, so reinstated write permission to home/mapsilva and downlords faf worked fine.
@ tatsu hoow long did lutris take to download supcom, i waited like an hour and all i got was window saying forged alliance installing so ckeckedinternet traffic and nothing was downloading tried 3 or 4 more times and the same, so i downloaded game using steam now i can play the game using steam and lutris through a desktop shortcut for the game but not faf, will try today to get faf playing the game.

I'll make a new video but I ended up dropping lutris in favor of native wine with gallium nine.

first completely and utterly remove wine from your system, removing lutris if it has nothing else of importance might help as well.

then you can follow this guide : https://askubuntu.com/questions/15551/h ... completely

and for extra safety you can seach your whole computer for wine and delete what you find.

then :

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:commendsarnex/winedri3
sudo apt update
sudo apt install wine-d3d9-staging


then

Code: Select all
wine --version


to check that you are indeed pointing to wine 3.18 by default. then :

Code: Select all
winecfg


to initialize and run base config :

then you can install steam then FA and run FA a first time to create config folders.
run downlord FAF as well and try to download a map/mod so that it creates required folders in your home.

then :

Code: Select all
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance
ln -s $HOME/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Maps/ Maps
ln -s $HOME/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Mods/ Mods
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/t
rm -rf My\ Documents
mkdir My\ Documents
cd My Documents
ln -s $HOME/My\ Games/ My\ Games


this will make mods and maps functional.

you'll still get random race in ladder though.

for my Downlord FAF (for some weird reason), downloads straight to :
Code: Select all
$HOME/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Maps

not
Code: Select all
$HOME/Documents/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Maps


so I did this :
Code: Select all
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance
ln -s /home/t/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Maps/ Maps
ln -s /home/t/My\ Games/Gas\ Powered\ Games/Supreme\ Commander\ Forged\ Alliance/Mods/ Mods
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/t
rm -rf My\ Documents
mkdir My\ Documents
cd My Documents
ln -s /home/t/My\ Games/ My\ Games


I'm pretty sure the first two links are unused as it's only when I created the third that all started to work.

(mods work but aren't enabled via FAF, only ingame lobby (let's not ask for too much :P ) )


?? you have the same problem using the Downlords client as i have using the Python client?
that's odd.
what is the version of the Downlords client you are using? does it update itself?

btw everything i wrote about this problem involves the Python client.
i don't use the Downlord client and i didn't test mods/maps with it either. tho, i have experienced issues with it when connecting to lobbies / starting the game, maybe that is related to this, i don't know...

downlord client and no it doesn't update itself so far as I can tell. it's a weird build that installs itself to /opt/ a dir only root has access to so it can't change files in it's own folder when I run it with my rights.

I need to look into making a new .deb that installls to home like a regular linux app this way it has write priveledges and stuff. I just don't know how to make .Deb.

Installing itself into opt is the correct way. It is based on the FHS.
It seems weird because all other applications are doing it wrong especially steam. :lol:

What you have proposed is a portable installation. Even if it is not portable.
It is the updater that is missing.

One correct behavior would be using a daemon that is responsible for managing the installation.


I thought about making the needed daemon but i am to lasy atm.

we cannot start the game using Proton and the game windows executable only because Proton is dependent on Steam.
so no. not yet at least.

but you're welcome to experiment with it. if you can start the base game (not faf) using Proton and without using Steam like we can with Wine then we are good to go. Proton is Wine basically btw.

there was a discussion about Proton back then here btw:

- we install the game using Steam (the windows version of Steam) using Wine.
- we use Wine to launch the Windows executable of the game (Supreme Commander FA) or the moded version of it (SupCom FAF). or more precisely the FAF client(s) does this.

you only need the game files and Wine to run the game on Linux.

or be more precise, i don't know exactly what you would like to know.
