    There is my solution for marketplace suppot in ubuntu. It'll be same for any other linux distributions.

    1. Install and setup Wine.
    Wiki is here:

    2. Download winetricks

    3. Install required tools using winetricks
    sudo apt install winbind
    winetricks corefonts
    sudo apt install cabextract
    3. Download latest official version of Launcher.
    4. Run installation using wine
    wine msiexec /i <path-to-launche-installer>.msi
    5. After installation process finished first time run Launcher using wine with argument "SkipBuildPatchPrereq" to disable update process. Next time this argument isn't necessery anymore.
    wine 'C:/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/Launcher/Portal/Binaries/Win32/EpicGamesLauncher.exe' -SkipBuildPatchPrereq
    Launcher is ready now, but it will not find any projects you created. To fix that you should do next steps:
    1. Open "My Documents" folder of wine. Usually placed in "~/.wine/drive_c/users/<username-as-lunix>/My documents/".
    2. Open or create folder "Unreal projects". You shuold have something like that: "~/.wine/drive_c/users/kir/Мои документы/Unreal Projects".
    3. Make symbolic link to your project's folder.
    cd "~/.wine/drive_c/users/kir/Мои документы/Unreal Projects"
    ln -s <path-to-your-ue4-project> ./<project-name>
    4. Restart Launcher.

    Now you can download any assets to your projects.
    Neomer, you're my true heroe, it works like a charm. It's not that I didn't appreciate the java versions;however, to be honest it brings a lot of troubles. The wine version, not Lutris is easy to follow and works.


      I've tried the java version. Awesome work! But it gets stuck on 2fa, it opens a window with almost no size and i can't do anything.

      I've tried the wine version but it fails with this :
