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.

    also, i know everyone wants it to be on linux, but there isn't just one version, so make different launchers for each version.

    Also the official response is really annoying and dismissive: "Linux support will be addressed later on". Not, "We will support linux at a later date". This makes it sound like they won't even commit to supporting linux, an OS reasonably popular among developers.

    I think your R&D department should really look into the Linux gaming community, because it is exploding from what I'm seeing. Not that I'm an expert or anything. It just seems that people are truly looking for alternatives.

    Please don't make the mistake that the Twitch Launcher did. Make it finally Linux compatible. I never got Twitch Launcher to work under wine btw.

    Adding my vote to linux support. Like many we have multiple machines all running various distros of linux and Minecraft runs faster and better on these machines when they run Linux instead of Windows.

    I play Minecraft on an Arch Linux PC and host two Minecraft servers on a box running Ubuntu Server 20.04. While I am technically sound enough to install mods manually, the ease of use and the beautiful UI would be so nice to use on my machine. Thank you so much for posting this idea and it's amazing how many people support it!

    Id absolutely love this, i dont want to have to run it under wine and cause bugs for my system.

    Normally it can be understandable not to support linux, since its a niche community, although in this instance, that same community is huge for modding.
