The launcher files are installed under the group "games". Please add your user to this group with usermod -a -G games, otherwise the launcher will not be able to auto-update itself properly.

To disable the popup asking for system integration at each startup, execute touch $HOME/.local/share/appimagekit/no_desktopintegration.

@bkb The Linux version of Dofus is indeed using Wine. If you take a look at the Dofus version the Launcher is downloading, you'll see a zaap-start.sh file that starts the Windows version of the game on Linux, using Wine.

In fact, running Dofus on Linux through Wine yields better performance than the native Linux version. Also, you're able to use DXVK to enable GPU rendering in Wine, and this allows for a smooth experience, close to the one you'd be having on Windows, so running Dofus on Wine is really a good idea.

As for the 56% issue, I've made a post (in French) explaining how to fix it, while we wait for Ankama to fix this issue in the Launcher.

Why does he wine dofus?

Linux version of Dofus is available

(+ halt at 56% at Dofus load)

@Satro I'm currently on the wine-staging AUR package (so 5.5-1 too) and I'm able to run the game just fine. Maybe there's something else going on on your side that's preventing the game from running smoothly ?

There might be a problem with the latest version of Wine (5.5-1), I had the following Wine error : "kernelbase.dll" failed to initialize when launching Dofus. To work around the problem, downgrade your Wine package to the previous version (5.4-1).

@Satro Good call ! I added fuse as a dependency. Thanks !

Satro commented on 2020-03-25 13:21

I think there is a missing dependency. Upon starting the launcher after the installation, I got :

$ankama-launcher
dlopen(): error loading libfuse.so.2

AppImages require FUSE to run. 
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage 
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option. 
See https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/FUSE 
for more information

As required, I installed Fuse and it works fine.

Thanks @Genisis, the solution works !

Hi @Skydave ! If you're french, I've already covered these issues on the official Dofus forums and explain how to solve them temporarily, while waiting for an official fix. Unfortunately, I don't have any other solution at the moment.

Here's a link to a post I made : https://www.dofus.com/fr/forum/1713-ankama-launcher/2315412-ankama-launcher-options-generales?page=1#entry12620354

I recently install ankama-launcher, open-jdk and wine, when I launched from launcher Dofus the loading screen stuck to 56%. But when I open directly dofus with wine, the game can charge and go to the login. I think that it is the parse of the login that cause the problem.

Hi @Mathius and thanks for your feedback !

I've made some changes to the PKGBUILD to add p7zip as a make dependency and install a script in /usr/bin to run Ankama Launcher from $PATH.

Hope these changes will make it easier for you and the others that don't use .desktop files ! Let me know if there's anything else ;)
