I want to use the Unreal Engine Editor on my Linux computer, however, I can't do that without first installing the Epic Games Launcher, which is not compatible with Linux. I tried to get it to run on Linux using Wine, but I run into this error every time:
Which is super annoying and a serious barrier. Can anyone please help me on this?
This is also a known issue on Windows from what I can read. The solution for this is
install the latest version of the Epic Games Launcher
Run Epic Games Launcher with Admin privilege
Install latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables
Install .NET Framework 4.8
Assign Full Control permissions to the target folder
Modify Epic Games Launcher Target parameter:
How to archieve this in Wine I have no idea, as I won't torch it with an ugly stick
EDIT: if you're using Lutris they say this command will fix it:

You got Lutris installed and running? That command will only work if Lutris is installed. Also check if the paths is correctly set.
I've got it installed before I ran the command.
You need to install wine in Lutris itself and Epic Game Launcher as well.
How am I supposed to install Wine in Lutris? That's impossible.
AFAIK Lutris uses Wine, so it may be installed. Note: I don't use these apps so I have to go with my guts.
What does that even mean?
Did you install Epic Games via Lutris?
I just installed it via Epic's download page.
I guess we need someone with expertise in Lutris to step in as I don't know how it works.
Have you checked:
It comes with a installation script.
I was able to get Epic Games Launcher running and installed Unreal Editor alright, but it crashes a few seconds after it launches. What I need is a screen recorder to show you what happens.
Blue Recorder is an excellent screen recorder.
I'm wondering if this work for Unreal 5 engine getting it work natively in Linux:
I can't upload a video - This forum doesn't let me upload videos, only pictures.
I'm using youtube for that. Just set the uploaded video so that only those who got the link can see it.
