I've been trying to run GTA V on my Gentoo workstation. I've installed Wine and winetricks. Through winetricks I installed Steam. I was able to download and install GTA V.
But when I try to start GTA V I get the message: Unable to locate the Rockstar Games Launcher, please verify your game data.
I've downloaded the Rockstar Games Launcher here: https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/rockstar-games-launcher
When I run it with wine not much happens, I get a language select menu, but I can't actually select anything.
My pc has an Nvidia graphic card and I'm using the nouveau driver.

This is all totally new to me, have never played any games on my Gentoo pc. Anyone that has GTA V running on Gentoo?

AlfaGTV,

I recommend you use steam+proton on gentoo for all steam related activities instead of wine+steam. Proton can be enabled in the steam client settings for all games, and bundles libraries such as wine and dxvk for so you don't have to maintain a .wine/ as tediously. Feel free to use wine for other applications as necessary though.

Here is how to run steam on gentoo:

Here is a proton thread for the game which may include some necessary configuration, but it seems to work oob.

Additionally, you should look into running nvidia drivers if it is acceptable for you to do so.
