The gaming Client designed for a convenient purchasing, playing and updating games, as well as an online play between gaming platforms, GOG Galaxy is also built with optionality in mind, and a belief that you should own the games you buy.
This is the Windows version running via WINE. It is experimental. Some games may not work correctly, or at all. Your mileage may vary.
Some games might require you to run snap connect gog-galaxy-wine:hardware-observe, and/or snap connect gog-galaxy-wine:process-control in a terminal (or use the Software Centre in Ubuntu 18.04 to toggle "Access to hardware information" and/or "Pause ro end any process on the system") to grant extra permissions for the application. Though all the games tested so far do not need these permissions.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara) and Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
