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.

    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.

    Linux users are smart as many of us are either computer devs or something like it. if you just add a linux install the linux users will find a way to make it work on linux then those of us who arent professionals with computers and all that will follow along a post or tutorial or something.

    Open source the mess and let those of us who've chosen Linux make it work.

    I find it especially weird that a lot of mod developers utilize Linux as their daily drivers, yet CurseForge refuses to support even Ubuntu/Linux Mint with a barebones application. Kinda feels like that CurseForge doesn't support the mod developers, a statement I've heard echoing from a couple devs that are thinking about taking their mods off the platform.

    At least let me install the jar file please, it keeps thinking I'm on mobile so it doesn't let me even download
