Fallout 4 Linux DXVK Wine – how to play this game on Linux.

Fallout 4 is a game not originally released on Linux. It has many problems with Wine and differend sound glitches in the past but now it runs really well on Linux. It still requires some tweaking, however. But fear not! We’ll guide you through the entire process. Let’s begin!

For this game you’ll need Wine or Wine-Staging, DXVK, FAudio, a setting in Wine, and an environment variable.

If you don’t know how to setup DXVK, you can follow our comprehensive DXVK installation tutorial. For FAudio you can refer to another easy tutorial of ours here.

Now you’ll have to set the mouse to be captured automatically in full-screen windows. Issue the following in terminal:


In the Wine settings go to Graphics tab and select „Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen applications“. Here’s how it should look like:

To avoid mouse problems you should open your your Fallout.ini, find the [Controls] section and add the line ‘bBackgroundMouse=1‘. If the setting isn’t there – create it. Fallout.ini may be at different locations depending on your Wine version. If you are using Wine you can find it in /home/My Games/Fallout4/. If you are using Proton and Steam, it will be in /STEAMInstallDirectory/compatdata/377160/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My\ Documents/My\ Games/Fallout4.

We are almost ready. Now you can start the game but you should use a pulse audio environmental variable. To do this you’ll have to issue the following:


You can use a script to facilitate.
