Now press this ad it will show a Window asking you to choose what apps you want to install. Let’s use an installation of JETT (EGS) and Pid (GOG). For instance, installed via Lutris and Heroic>under the Window pop-up, we want to head into where Lutris and Wine have placed our files. For us it was:

/home/deck/Games/epic-games-store/drive_c/Program Files/Epic Games/JETT


We also had to change the drop down menu named “File Type” from .desktop to All Files. It will reveal the .exe and the rest of the files. We just want to select the .exe which is the game itself.
