GameGlass fully supports Linux with access to all the same features and functionality available on Windows PCs. Most major distributions of Linux are officially supported -1 version from the latest LTS which includes:

- Ubuntu 22.04+
- Linux Mint 21.2+
- Fedora 39+

Musl distributions such as Gentoo are not supported at the time of writing however many other common distributions will work in addition to those listed above. Please consider just these as officially supported in relation to our commitment for support inquiries.

Support for other distributions is on a best effort basis. An AppImage installer is provided for distributions outside of our supported native Linux options of rpm and deb.
