Support Linux for Curseforge Launcher

Many many linux users play Minecraft, not only cause it's great but because there aren't many excellent games that support Linux. I'm trying to download RLCraft 2.9 today but being unable to load the Curseforge launcher is making this difficult. Please allow us to continue playing great mods by letting us use the Curseforge Launcher.

    Okay we have WoW but the biggest strategy game is still missing: League of Legends. Works wonderful with Proton! in 2023 it feels like its running smoother than on windows which honestly many games feels like they are running better on linux than on its original operating system. Since Proton is so far actually including kernel feature esync/fsync there seems to be lesser overhead in the background. So add it to the roadmap please :-) Btw 5 of my active friends using linux as main system and gaming. My whole family including any sub family members are on linux, too. They're fascinated how smart it is to use linux in 2023. No one is looking backwards to windows anymore. Linux support for curseforge is really awesome ! THANKS!

    Given the evergrowing popularity of modpacks such as RLCraft and Vault Hunters, I'd also like to ask for Linux support. I'll gladly go through the necessary hoops so the Curseforge Launcher can be released distribution independent! (Although judging from the WoW launcher, it seems like much has been figured out already?)

    Best alternative for Linux for now is ATLauncher. I am happy to still be able to play curse modpacks
