Desktop on Linux

  1. Download the latest Shoko Desktop latest (zip) from Github.

    • Extracting to ~/ works fine, but you can also extract directly into the Wine environtment’s virtual C:/ later.
  2. Install the following from your distributions repository or flatpak

    • winetricks
    • Lutris (optional as other tools can be used)
  3. Launch winetricks to configure a wineprefix

    • Choose create new wineprefix (x64_x86 is fine) and <name it>.
    • Install a Windows DLL or component
      • d3dcompiler_47
      • dotnet40 - prereq for dotnet 48
      • dotnet48*
      • vcrun2013

You can now exit winetricks if it is still open.

At this point the environment is ready and you may choose to use a different tool to proceed
