Install Wine Staging

This is a version of Wine which gets game patches added in more regularly than the Stable version. So it’s best for gamers.

The following is for ubuntu, but if you are using another distro read the sequence here https://wiki.winehq.org/Download

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

sudo apt-key add winehq.key

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ disco main'

The last line above is for ubuntu 19.04, for another version please click here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu and change the line to your distro, or https://www.gloriouseggroll.tv/how-to-get-out-of-wine-dependency-hell/.

sudo apt update

sudo apt install wine-staging

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

If it asks for libfaudio0 files you can install them here: https://pkgs.org/download/libfaudio0.

Right click the files and install them with something like gdebi package installer.

Install Vulkan

This part circumvents the following issue: “Support for DirectX 9 has ended. We hope you can upgrade your graphics card soon!”

In regards to Lutris support:

“If you get DirectX errors, it means you’re missing vulkan libraries. You need both 32 bit and 64 bit vulkan libraries installed on your system for your distro. The reason is because the game is 64 bit but the launcher is 32 bit so the launcher checks for 32 bit.” https://lutris.net/games/warframe/

To install Vulkan:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers

sudo apt update

sudo apt upgrade

sudo apt install libvulkan1 mesa-vulkan-drivers vulkan-utils

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

sudo apt upgrade

sudo apt install nvidia-graphics-drivers-396 nvidia-settings vulkan vulkan-utils

Install Steam and Warframe

sudo apt install steam-devices

Steam > Settings > Steam Play, check “Enable Steam Play for all titles” and “Use this tool instead of game-specific selections from Steam” and under “Compatibility tool” select any Proton version 3.16 or higher.

sudo apt install xz-utils curl tar gzip xterm wine64-tools

If you use keyboard and mouse:

cd

curl -O https://gist.githubusercontent.com/xarvh/6abfbd176a48e21886813e98480e9dc5/raw/96642aeea1a1f59d9f59cff5b6ecbb20362fdfd3/xboxdrv.service

sudo apt install xboxdrv

sudo mv xboxdrv.service /etc/systemd/system

sudo systemctl enable xboxdrv

sudo systemctl start xboxdrv

“Workaround: install xboxdrv and run it as a service before running steam, steam recognizes it as an xbox controller even without a controller plugged in. it’s mean to be a translator for generic game pads.” https://gitlab.com/GloriousEggroll/warframe-linux/issues/9

The above is enabled xboxdrv to be added to system boot. So will be automatically on from now on. This is fine for making Warframe smooth, but can cause an issue with other games as it defaults you to use a controller. If this happens with another game, just put, sudo systemctl stop xboxdrv.service, into terminal to kill the service and the game should revert back to keyboard.

Warframe’s “Special” Proton

Download https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom/releases/download/4.15-GE-4/Proton-4.15-GE-4.tar.gz

Go to /home/, press ctrl + h (turn on hidden files), click .steam, then steam.

Make a folder: compatibilitytools.d

Unpack Proton-4.15-GE-4.tar.gz and place those files into this folder.

Go to steam, click on Warframe, then on the right hand side click Settings > Properties. Click, “Force the user of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool,” then from the dropdown menu change it to Proton-4.15-GE-4.
