Hello.
I have been trying install DXVK on my system.
Code:
Operating System: Gentoo Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.5
Qt Version: 5.11.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.57.0
Kernel Version: 5.0.7-gentoo
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 12 × Intel® Core™ i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz
Memory: 15.6 GiB of RAM
I am fallowing the gentoo wiki on installing and setting it up, but I keep running into snags.
I have tried installing the tastytea repo and the git build but on each, I get the error when I try to install it with the Wineprefix fallowing the instructions. Via the tastytea
Code:
user $WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-64 /usr/lib64/dxvk/bin/setup_dxvk.sh install
user $WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32 /usr/lib32/dxvk/bin/setup_dxvk.sh install
and the Compiled
Code:
user $WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-64 x64/bin/setup_dxvk.sh install
user $WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-32 x32/bin/setup_dxvk.sh install
I get this error:
Code:
bash: /usr/lib64/dxvk/bin/setup_dxvk.sh: No such file or directory
and
Code:
bash: x64/bin/setup_dxvk.sh: No such file or directory

For the tastytea, I could not find the file, but with the git build the install script is in the dxvk main directory. But even if I change the command to that I still get an error.
If someone can let me know what I need to do to fix this I would greatly appreciate it. There are some games that I am trying to play with proton but can't and I would like to get it installed to see if it would fix the issues that I am having playing those games.
Thanks again.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Unsupported Software.

The software discussed here is not available via the official Gentoo ebuild repository.

I'm guessing you've been reading the DXVK [1] wikki article? I think it could use at least some warnings about things mentioned there not being officially maintained (aside from Wine and such of course).

I would recommend using the official Gentoo Wine and Winetricks packaging for this, but if you want to stick to Proton, I imagine they might just complicate things for you. :]

You can manually install it by copying the .so files to $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32 and removing the .so suffix from the filename.

I use this one liner:
Code:
for f in *.so; do cp -- "$f" $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32/"${f%%.so}"; done

Thank you for the help.

@Chiitoo Thank you for moving it to the right place. I did not know that it was a unsupported program.

@argen I did it manually, changing the *.so so that they all replace the .dll with the same name. Thank you for the info.

Hopefully I can get it all finished so I can get my game to work.

You'd probably be better off using pchome's Gentoo Overlay, for winelib builds of dxvk / dvk9: Github: pchome/dxvk-gentoo-overlay ...

Since pchome is active on both these repositories.

Or if you if just want the pre-built mingw builds of dxvk... Then these are available as winetricks verbs, e.g.:
Code:
winetricks dxvk120

- which will automatically install dxvk 1.2, to the currently set WINEPREFIX.

Although, it should be noted that Austin can be tardy about accepting my winetricks pull-requests (there's quite a long queue waiting at the moment)... :roll:
