Installing a game with the Bottles application


I have just downloaded a game as an iso file. As it only runs on Windows, I have installed the Bottles application so that I can run the setup.exe file to which I have access after “mounting” the game iso file.
The problem I’m having is that when I run the setup.exe file, nothing happens.
Where does the problem come from? Is it due to the fact that the game is an iso file or is it due to a misuse of the Bottles application?

Many thanks for your help!


I would advise you to use Lutris if you want to run non-native and non-steam games on Linux.

That’s hard to tell from the information you have been given. Could you
add the following info:

  1. Did you install the RPM (Fedora repo) or Flatpak (upstream) package?
  2. How did you setup your bottle?
  3. Are there any error messages? Try running bottles from the terminal
    and watch the output or log it to a file (e.g.: bottles -b ${BOTTLE} -e ${EXEC} 2>&1 | tee -a /tmp/bottles.log).
  4. What Fedora release are you using?
