`![nix-flakes]` Lutris, Winetricks, and FL Studio

Winetricks doesn’t work in Lutris

I can’t click on the button, in the wine menu in lutris, and I am unable to run it using the wine-prefix-cli because of permissions.

Strangely enough, winetricks does load/run in this case but I am unable to modify the Lutris-created prefix.

I have installed packages like this:

users.users.mj = {
    isNormalUser = true;
    description = "vimv";
    extraGroups = [ "networkmanager" "wheel" "podman" ];
    shell = pkgs.zsh;
    packages = with pkgs; [
    # ...
    lutris # Cross-Platform
    # ...
    ];
  };
  # ...
  environment.systemPackages = with pkgs; [
    # ...
    wineasio # Cross-Platform
    winetricks # Cross-Platform
    wineWowPackages.stable # Cross-Platform
    # ...
  ];
  # ...

I’m a newbie

I’ve only just recently started learning nix-os, and I’m not really comfortable with using custom-installation methods such as from source or where CDN != nixos.org. For instance, I still have issues with my implementation of javascript and python (some people seem to prefer having it in their default environment for instance). I’ll try fix that while I wait to see if anyone has a solution, but at the same time maybe these two issues are already addressed by another document that someone has made. Maybe you know just the thing I should brush up on before making another #Help post?

Kind Regards,

PS: It completely missed my mind, the gnarly situation around nvim and plugins as well. Anyway, I am in the middle of eating this since I haven’t tried it yet.
