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 can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
