Linux Installatiegids

Peacock is primair gemaakt om te werken op Windows, maar ben niet bang, het is namelijk mogelijk om het ook op Linux gebruiken!

Update November 2022

Update as of November 2022:

  • Go to this Github repo for updated instructions on how to get Peacock running on Linux with Steam.
  • Original Instructions below may also work.


Om de server aan de praat te krijgen op Linux, moet je eerst Node.js voorbereiden.

Install nvm

Om dit te doen moet je het volgende commando uitvoeren:

curl -o- | bash

Dit zal nvm downloaden en installeren, wat het mogelijk maakt om snel tussen Node.js versies te wisselen. Dit maakt het mogelijk om Peacock altijd de juiste Node.js versie te geven die nodig is.

Install Node.js

Next, cd to the directory you have Peacock unzipped to, and run the following command:

nvm install

This will install the version of Node.js required by Peacock. You will need to re-run this when Peacock updates.

Create a launcher script

Finally, create a script that lets you easily start the server, with the suggested contents being as follows:

node --enable-source-maps --harmony chunk0.js --hmr
  • Note: If you are using a port other than port 80, you should specify the port in your launcher script. Substitute PORTNUMBER in the script below with your port number of choice.

    • ```shell PORT=PORTNUMBER node --enable-source-maps --harmony chunk0.js --hmr

And then make the script executable:

chmod +x ./

You can now launch the server by running the script you just created.


This part is a lot more tricky. You need to run the patcher in the same Wine prefix as the game.

Some users have gotten it to work, but others haven't. Feel free to document your experience in the Discord's #help channel for anybody that has problems in the future to reference.

Some people have gotten it to work using the following command:

STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH="$HOME/.steam/root/steamapps/compatdata/1659040" \
"$HOME/.steam/root/steamapps/common/Proton\ -\ Experimental/proton" run /path/to/PeacockPatcher.exe

Obviously, you will need to change the paths to match your install of Steam, Proton, and the patcher.
