Lutris syncs STEAM games when sync is turned off (library) #962
referenced this issue
Aug 17, 2018
As far as I know, Lutris does not delete a game from the library on the lutris homepage, if you delete it in the lutris application. So if you have a lutris account connected, the game will always show up again, if you don't delete it on the website.
You could test, if this is your problem by deleting a game you think is imported through steam on the lutris website and then delete it in the lutris application and restart.
I was going to take a shot at this one, as I've seen it myself.
After a little testing, it seems like the entry isn't imported when Lutris starts, it's imported when the local Steam client starts.
Ah, okay, I got it to trigger again:
When is it the right time for it to check that? Should it not start the SteamWatcher at all, if it's not set up to sync?
Or does the first part of
After @keturn s work I could reproduce as well. If steam and lutris are open and I install a game, lutris adds it.
I guess that lutris removes a game if it is uninstalled from steam is useful even without enabled syncing because the game can not be started from lutris anymore. But if live syncing is fixed, we should change the text as well. For now it justs says that libraries are synced when lutris starts.
Just to put my two cents in.
What is everyone here talking about? It doesn't seem to me like Lutris even has an option to disable syncing (At least I couldn't find it). So how can it be bugged if it doesn't even exist? What everyone here is probably talking about is the option to disable sync when Lutris starts, which seems to work just as it should.
That being said, it's not very clear and can be easily confused as an option to disable sync entirely. I think it would be better to rename this issue to something like "Add option to fully disable game sync".
Syncing SHOULD be disabled by default, but clearly it isn't. My understanding is that syncing with the STEAM install on the same computer typically relies on logging into a Lutris account and then enabling/disabling per runner. But the thing is Lutris is syncing for me, without logging in, and without telling it to, and I have ZERO way to tell it to stop.
I want it to NOT sync by default, and for this shit to just stop already.
I've had Lutris sync games while it was running, I did not have to re-run it for syncing to happen.
Again, I want it OFF BY DEFAULT AND the ability to turn it off/on.
