"Nothing that can be launched was found" for tar.gz archives #2175
Due to itchio/butler#48, I'm pushing my GNU/Linux builds as tar.gz archives with butler to itch.io.
One example: https://dos.itch.io/odlot
However, since v25, the Itch app can't handle it.
Clicking "Show in file manager" reveals that there's just one unpacked tar.gz file placed into the game directory.
Launching the game works fine on Itch v23. Also, tar.gz builds uploaded manually via the Web work fine on both versions, only butler ones are problematic.
So, here's the situation:
If it doesn't do that, then it's a bug and that should be investigated. I'm thinking maybe it does that on initial install, but not when upgrading? I'll have to dig into this.
Just encountered this issue with a different game. Selecting install in the itch app downloaded the tar.gz but did not extract the contents.
Running version 25.4.0 on an up-to-date Arch Linux install. If there are any other details I can provide, please let me know.
@hugga-bean I had to revert those changes - it broke other functionality.
My hope is to enable generation of .tar.gz archives in the backend soon, and then seamlessly extract
In the meantime, pushing
