ESO Linux Addon Downloader

I made a simple addon downloader (and maybe a proper manager in future) for Linux. It should work on Steam Deck as well, but I don't have one so I can't try it.

I couldn't get Minion to work on my system so I made this lol. (Yes I was basically too lazy to get Minion to work so I made my own app)


What it does is basically automate the downloading and unzipping for all the addons you list.
There is also button to update TTC prices.

The source code is open so you can check what it does in here: https://codeberg.org/akselmo/ESOLinuxAddonManager
Also the readme has the instructions, so please read those.

Also here's direct link to the downloads https://codeberg.org/akselmo/ESOLinuxAddonManager/releases

The app is distributed as an appimage.

If you have any bugs or issues with the app, please create a new issue in the codeberg, it's easier to track that way.

I hope you like it.

    Minion is a bit scary...

    FREE of charge, but NOT open source. What do you have to HIDE?

    Also pretty outdated (doesnt consider dependecies)

    It sells your grandma, you know... *irony off*

    Why is it outdated if it is missing a feature that was never meant to be added to it? It's working and eases your addon handling.

    Everything else is just pure lazyness as you are able to read what dependencies are needed, install them once and your are done. After that update of Minion takes care of them.
    You could even just install all addons names Lib* if you are too lazy to read the addon descriptions...

    When you read the addons after searching for them in minion it tells you which addons are needed for it to function properly. you then search for them and d/l them

    Has anyone tried this on a Steam Deck yet?

    Thanks for making this! Solid! Appreciated!

    There also exists another MInion on linux version now, which the user here posted at esoui.com:

    Didn't even see that Baertram posted this. But basically the link he, well, linked is true and I've posted Minion on flathub.

    Just running these commands (you need to have flatpak installed) will install Minion on your machine:
    flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
    flatpak install gg.minion.Minion
