Let me guess. Game opens in a white screen and then closes?
If so, that's what solved my problem: I needed to install vcrun2017 in order to make it playable.

- You have to install winetricks, and enter the Steam Play prefix for DS:Remaster running this on your terminal:
WINEPREFIX=/home/<your user>/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/570940/pfx winetricks

- Select "Select the default wineprefix" and then "Install a Windows DLL or component".

- Select "vcrun2017" and click Ok.

- Once you're back to the winetricks menu, close it and run the game. It worked for me


EDIT: You can do it directly running:

WINEPREFIX=/home/<your user>/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/570940/pfx winetricks vcrun2017

I can confirm that "Dark Souls Remastered" runs flawlessly in Ubuntu 18.04 with this method. Thanks!!!! It's cool that all three dark souls games run in Linux now!!!

Thanks a lot, worked for me too. (Gentoo.) Was amusing that DS:PTD version worked without any tweaks, but ran at ~15fps. Remastered runs at 60fps, hooray for optimization!

I was able to fix the white screen issue at startup, but after I hit "ACCEPT" after creating my character, the game crashes to desktop on Xubuntu 18.04. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks!

Hi there!
Fedora 30!

Tried to do the same to play DS: Remastered WINEPREFIX=/home/[path]/steamapps/compatdata/570940/pfx winetricks

I try to install vcrun2017 and it gives me this errors:

1. Working around wine bug 37781
2. This may fail in non-XP mode, see https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37781
3. Running /usr/bin/wineserver -w. This will hang until all wine processes in prefix=/home/[path]/steamapps/compatdata/570940/pfx terminate
4. Note: command wine VC_redist.x86.exe returned status 193. Aborting.

Note: command wine VC_redist.x86.exe returned status 193. Aborting.

Do you know why? :t

Ok, what basically you need to:
You need to create a new WINE prefix, which will need to be 32bit(in the "570940" folder which is the prefix for the DS one)
After that you will be able to install vcrun 2017

I don't understand what this means. I though the original command was to create a new WINE prefix?
