App uses auto-update.
Ubisoft Connect (formerly UPlay) installs, processes login
interface language changed
Install a game, Launch a game, uninstall a game.
What does not
Login stalls with an undrawn window outline (fixed with corefonts)
chat window opens but does not display anything but a circling wait prompt. Waited for a minute or two and closed the window.
winetricks corefonts workaround is required
What was not tested
buying / activating games.
Test conducted in a VM, so the installed game was not expected to be playable. Only the fact that it starts was checked.
