    Default Lutris, Wine and Freetype2

    Hello everybody, I was searching the net a whole long time for this issue, even created an issue on the offical github page fro lutris but didn't got any help there.
    Here is the situation:

    After an update from lutris 0.4.18 to 0.4.19 and also with 0.4.20 I have the following issue:
    Every time I want to launch a winesteam or wine game trough lutris it tells me that freetype2 2.0.5 or higher need to be installed in order to make wine render fonts. (And it really do not render fonts)
    The thing is I'm unable to find a freetype2 package for openSUSE is there any one or is it included in some other package?
    Further on if I launch wine which is installed in my system there are no font issues nor any message about a missing freetype2 library.
    Also if I use the lutris prefixes as wineprefix for my system side installed wine I get no errors and everything seems to be okay.
    Further on this issue first appears after an update from 0.4.18 to any newer version of lutris.

    Is any body familiar with this issue or know any solution?
    Is there any freetype2 package I can install and if yes, where do I find it?
    I search also software.opensuse.org for this package and also found repositories which claim to have a freetype2 packed but if I add the repo via One Click Install or manually there is no freetype2 package available.

    Thanks in advanced,
    Vortex

    Hi
    It's there as libfreetype6 at version 2.9, seems lutris has no requirement of libfreetype...?
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/b...1.1.noarch.rpm

    Sounds more like a wine issue with the game your using.

    The problem persist with any wine version I use via lutris, even 3.7 which is also installed in my system.
    And also I played a lot of games with lutris and wine and after the update everything was broken so I'm not sure what this is all about =/
    So it seems a problem with lutris launching wine or setting environment variables don't know.
    But as said I asked the lutris dev team for help but didn't received any help yet.
    So I search for this "missing" package and finally wrote this post.

    Okay, checked, libfreetype6 was already installed both 64bit and 32bit.

    For me this issue persist with any winesteam game.
    If you launch lutris via console and run an installer from the website https://lutris.net/games/
    I tried The Turing Test, Space Colony.

    Since the latest update of lutris (0.4.20) I'm not even able to run any installer which uses the winesteam runner in lutris. So basically I can not run nor install any windows steam game through lutris. =/

    Just right now, for my answer to you, I tried this installer https://lutris.net/games/path-of-exile/ and lutris do not even install it ... I'm still not sure if it's just a lutris problem or if there are any packages missing lutris won't tell me about. =/
    Path of Exile is, as far as I know, Free to Play, that's why I choose this one to test the current state of lutris.
    I tried to ran the "Steam w/ DXVK version" the last one in the list.
    Also lutris stuck on downloading the SteamInstall.msi at 4 seconds remaining.
    After killing it and rerun the install script lutris stuck at "Installing Game Data".
    The same behavior goes for the 2nd last installer "Steam version"

    If I run any of my previous installed winesteam than there is the FreeType issue.
    I'm totaly confused and I wonder why I'm the only one complaining about this issue and feel like I'r my the only one expecting this ._.

    Fyi the github issue I created: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/issues/1096

    Thank you for taking the time helping me

    Hi
    I see the same thing here, it seems to me is something funky with
    libfreetype6-32bit rather than the lutris application.

    Might get some time over the weekend to investigate more.

    Thank you so much!
    I nearly gave up in getting any help.
    Finally it was a good decision to ask here

    By the way, the lutris issue can be found here: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/issues/1096

    @Vortex : while it's not a fix there was a workaround to this problem - right click on the app icon in Lutris, go to system options and uncheck "Prefer system libraries".

    Yesterday's update on Opensuse broken Vulkan detection on my end - now Lutris claims Vulkan loader is not present if I use DXVK. But if I choose to ignore this warning everything works (Vulkan demos and dedicated Vulkan apps work as well).
