Vinegar - The Better Way to Run Roblox on Linux

I have this issue too!
When I open Roblox Studio, it just says that there was a serious error. (or something similar, currently not on my main machine)

I’m running an install of Debian 12 on an RTX 2060 Super and an i5-9400F, so maybe it has something to do with Debian-based distros or Nvidia’s drivers? That’s my best guess, but I have no experience in Linux app development.

Hopefully this can get fixed soon, Windows 11 in my experience is too slow and clunky for me.

edit - mistyped cpu smh

does it work with Roblox Studio?

Do you think this would be able to run on Kubuntu?

Absolutely. You can either compile vinegar or use the flatpak.

Sounds like a great FOSS project. I’m going to try it out!

can’t seem to get studio to work, instantly crashes and opens the wine debugger which is about as helpful as you’d expect

tried every renderer i could, guess that’s the one reason to keep my windows ssd


Finally. Roblox is playable again without having to reinstall a Bloat Infested OS

It’s a Wine bug. You will need the childwindow patch (already included with Flatpak) and you will need to set your DPI to 192. Some people have also had luck with a DPI of 120.

I have every required dependency that I’m aware of, and am running on Debian 11 (using ChromeOS’s linux feature if it really matters)
