Add link to the Dwarf Fortress Steam page and its SDL dependencies for Pacman (as it won't run on Proton without then). —This unsigned comment is by FlatBoulders (talk) 2022-12-28T20:48:37. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Describe aur package dwarffortress-linuxdwarfpack-appimage more

dwarffortress-linuxdwarfpack-appimageAUR is probably the simplest option from all the AUR options just because Lazy New Pack is great launcher allowing to easily edit critical settings like population cap which is easy enough to do manually. But options like disabling aquifers or changing graphics and updating savegames while at it, are pretty tricky to do manually.

LNP itself is all python but building it 'properly' somehow failed, not sure why. So app image is probably the best option, but it might have some limitations, I am not sure how it might conflict with the regular dwarffortress package and what happens to ~/.dwarfortress files. That should be explored.
