Lutris, a gaming platform For Ubuntu / Debian Flavours Like a Steam

Lutris is a gaming platform for GNU/Linux. Its goal is to make gaming on Linux as easy as possible by taking care of installing and setting up the game for the user. The only thing you have to do is play the game. It aims to support every game that is playable on Linux.


  • Manage your Linux games, Windows games, emulated console games and browser games
  • Launch your Steam and Desura games
  • Community-written installers to ease up your games’ installation
  • More than 20 emulators installed automatically or in a single click, providing support for most gaming systems from the late 70’s to the present day
  • Download and play libre and freeware games

There’s a lot more to come, here are some of the planned features that you can expect in future versions:

  • Humble Bundle and GOG support
