The newest version of the launcher.
Installing (with workaround)
Launching (with workaround) any game that works on Windows 8.1 or less.
Anything else should work (buying games wad not tested)
What does not
Launching with Windows version set to Windows 10.
Text entry on the login screen only works if the winecfg option "Allow the windows manager to control the windows" is set. This is only needed once if the "remember me" option is ticked
Nothing works if the Launcher is minimised then restored, and the above winecfg option is set.
Copied from Noostyche's entry but with corrections:
The WINEPREFIX should be WINEARCH=win64
sudo apt install cabextract
sudo apt install winbind
Install the Microsoft Visual C++ packages as listed at https://epicgames.helpshift.co...
wine msiexec /i ./EpicInstaller-unrealengine.msi.msi /q
First start: wine 'C:/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/Launcher/Portal/Binaries/Win64/EpicGamesLauncher.exe' -SkipBuildPatchPrereq
It is necessary that the launcher has been updated without error SU-PQR1603. If the launcher is started without -SkipBuildPatchPrereq it will fail to start.
