Grapejuice - Easily run Roblox on Linux

This is a very nice tool, however I am running into an issue when using the patched Wine. I can run the Roblox player and Studio just fine with the normal Wine, but with the annoying mouse glitch. With the patched Wine installed Roblox won’t open, no matter what I do. The only thing that happens is that both Wine and Grapejuice have stuck processes running forever, until I manually kill them.

I am on Zorin OS 16.1 Core. No one at the Discord could help me, and neither could the troubleshooting guide.

If anyone knows a workaround I would appreciate it. Otherwise I guess I will have to go back to Windows for now.

Amazing tool, served me very well. Thank you!

cool software! I like it.

But i’ve come across an issue on my Manjaro VM, anytime I run grapejuice studio, I get this wine error.


This is my grape juice error:

It seems that studio cant be found, but when I search it on my system, I find my studio launcher:

I’ve also checked my wine version and it seems to be 7.10. Which I assume is the correct version?


not sure if I did something wrong in my installation.

thanks in advance! and good job on this amazing software

fixed! Wine HttpSendRequest failed. I found the fix here

I just had to do sudo pacman -S lib32-gnutls in the terminal

Sorry for the bump, but this actually seems like a really cool topic. I think I might try this out if I could possibly get Wine 7.0 on my Rpi4.

And I might also test this with my Ubuntu SD card I have.

But this needs to be admired more.
I still have the question: why doesn’t Roblox natively add Linux support?

I looked for answers and couldn’t find any reasonable ones.

Here’s a bit of a suggestion. Add a setting for studio to automatically install the Vanilla icons pack.
Maybe have the setting automatically install the default icons, but you can replace the png it uses for icons to change it to a different version, or just to use any custom studio icons.

Something like this (as well as the numerous other suggestions) of this type are all entirely out of scope of the purposes and goals of Grapejuice. GJ is meant to be a wrapper for ROBLOX with WINE, not a do-it-all tool to provide every possible end-user modification for ROBLOX.


The wine error is related to Roblox’s connection to a server. You should search up the error code.

Actually, that’s not a wine error. This is a Roblox error.

So, I’ve finally bothered to install Grapejuice in a VM, more obscure than last time using CutefishOS. And it works, this is my first time managing to get it running. My performance is pretty bad due to me using it in a VM, but I’m pleased to announce it works.

This is honestly an amazing project, please keep working on it.

before anyone asks, yes I did test on an alt

If you scroll up a few posts, you’ll realise I had trouble previously with getting it running. Requirements have since changed anyways.

Why would I sign into my main account on a VM?

What’s the point of using grapejuice on a VM in the first place? You would want a PC for this.

I literally don’t have any devices running Linux, I can’t run it on an old desktop due to GPU incompatibilities (obscure NVIDIA iGPU, think it has limited support even in Windows 10), and an old laptop since drivers look to be a pain to get for the network card etc

What’s wrong with just trying stuff out in a VM?

Trying is the keyword here and it wasn’t specified in your previous post, my apologies. I do think that for long-term use this shouldn’t be ran in a VM.

Is there any way I can use Steam Proton with this?

Does grapejuice work as intended if you use a window manager, not a desktop enviornment


yes. grapejuice does support and work with window managers

Great program, I used it to play roblox on my steam back a few months ago and it works like a dream :slight_smile:

Could u support for chromebook i mean u can install Minecraft coz Chromebook has linux built in. and I’m not telling you to do but is that possible?

Works great however there can be graphical errors in more detailed games

speaking of more detailed games, i’m running into an error about running out of memory in ROBLOX logs and then my game crashing. is there a way to increase the memory available to it? i have 16GB of RAM and this was never a problem on windows.
