If a user installs Steam using a Flatpak, MG doesn't run
« on: 10 February 2019, 20:04:24 »
I've been trying out Flatpaks recently. After I installed the Steam flatpak, and installed MG, MG wouldn't run. Although MG runs fine through my regular steam client (installed from the Debian repo). When I click to start MG, a small steam dialog appears for less than a second then disappears. Nothing else happens.

console output

I only have one other Steam game, "Time Clickers", and that runs from the Steam client installed as a Flatpak.

That error seems to imply an architectural mismatch. It looks like something 32 bit is being used in a 64 bit binary.
