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.

    I hope most mod creators realize it is a better idea to release their modpacks on modrinth.com

    Why is this marked as Shipped? There is no Minecraft support for the client, the one game that most use the client for. It is far from "Shipped".

    So, as it stands, there's no Minecraft support in the Linux CurseForge client, but modpack installation through third-party tools appears to have been stripped from the API.

    Exactly what is the suggested installation route for Linux users right now?

    Yall killed third party apps by changing API and if that wasn't enough, pushed out a launcher that doesn't even have the one game that most people would use it for which is Minecraft. I hope mod creators decide to host their modpacks elsewhere for real.

    Well I hope someone with an actual brain buys curseforge off of you and makes a Linux client before disabling third party apps.
    Tldr: You guys are some of the worst planners in the history

    Thank you for killing the whole linux modpack scene by restricting the use of third party clients, WITHOUT EVEN OFFERING a linux curseforge app. Just in time for the steam deck, well done.

    So you kill the f*cking mod API for minecraft before you have a proper linux client and now all the 3rd party linux clients are broken. Well done you are some horrible devs.

    Congrats :clap:

    Should we create a separate idea for Minecraft Linux Support?

    It launched, but only for WoW? Isn't Minecraft the most played game on Linux?

    There's already a nice linux client for WoW call wowup. However it's loosing support since curse isn't allowing a way for it to use the API, which is really sad IMHO

    Any news on a release? I'm hoping to run this instead of through proton, or manual install, when the steam deck gets here and a linux version would be prefered.

    What I mean by that is Linux doesn't do anything for itself is it it's an entire emulator it's the entire os or os depending what you run is just an emulator it's just layer after the layer and even though it doesn't have any emulators technically the whole thing is an emulator so you can't say that it doesn't have an emulator because the whole thing is

    Ok you know how someone said that Linux doesn't have an emulator system well the Linux system is an emulator
