Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Linux Support

The current banding only mentions Windows and Mac for the new client, but a not insignificant portion of modders use some form of linux as their daily driver OS.

    Admin response

    PC support will roll out first followed shortly by Mac.
    Linux support will be addressed later on.

    We realize there are Linux OS gamers and creators and want to offer them the CurseForge experience, however we require time.

    OK.. waiting for the Linux version. I do NOT use windows anymore at all -- World of Warcraft runs great under gamemode/lutris under Linux.

    There's a bunch of Linux users coming, whenever Steam Deck starts shipping. They're going to want a certain Controllable mod to not have to connect a keyboard and mouse to play Minecraft.

    Created an account just to say, hey, yano, can you guys actually do this? Or at least openly be like "nah, we don't think linux users matter are a large enough demographic for the necessary investment"?

    Gorilla Dev launcher is already supports almost all CurseForge and FTB packs. Someone just gave up waiting for an official CurseForge launcher.

    I think this is super critical question. And seeing that the response was over a year ago, feels like they were trolling us. Let's say it cannot be made for a year (which is absolutely not true as they could have given us even a stupid electron app for the start that would take a week to develop), I mean, at least we would hear something. It's being developed, it's under way... But not a single word over as year means they do not care. This issue should be made high priority again and I think we should really press them from all the sides, leaving them no other choice but to sit and just do it.

    Maybe with the recent Twitch data breach we can get a port of the old CurseForge launcher using the leaked source code.

    Gaming on Linux is become more common with all the things Steam/Valve has been doing for the community, like Proton!
    We really need Overwolf!

    This is absurd. How can you guys ignore the most requested feature on this website? This suggestion was made over a year ago, and it seems that there has not been a single comment made in regards to future linux support, let alone any sort of official announcement. It's fine if you guys won't do it, but could you at least be upfront about it?

    GDLauncher is an OpenSource alternative to CurseForge(regarding Minecraft), it works really well and looks nice. Since I doubt that anything regarding Linux will happen here.

    It is almost the end of 2021. You have had this on MacOS, already a UNIX-based OS, for about a year. It is a Chromium-based application. HOW THE HECK IS THIS NOT ALREADY ON LINUX YET!?

    I hope when u guys say the full curseforge experience means both curseforge and overwolf apps

    Trying to download the client from a Linux browser (Chromium), I get this message: "The CurseForge app is not meant for mobile. Please retry on a PC or Mac computer."

    @Team Overwolf: Get your terminology straight. PC is not just Windows. A PC is just a tool capable of running a variety of operating systems.

    I gave up on Windows over a decade ago, so it would be great if I could play with my friends.

    P.S. "PC support" is not the same as "Windows support". I run my Linux OS on a PC. :)
