Guys, I could solve the issue with error prompt.

You have to install Cossacks in root folder.
1. Open your file browser with root rights (google for it how)
2. navigate to: /usr/share/games
3. create new folder, like "Steam"
4. set access privilegs for this new folder to you user (mostly right click -> properties -> access privilegs -> change "group" to your user and change "access" to "create files and delete"
5. In steam choose this folder as install folder for Cossacks (if you already installed Cossacks, de-install it at first)
6 if Steam is showing some errors, like not enough space or no write access, check step 4 again, because Steam has no access privilegs to this folder.
7. start cossacks and enjoy the game!

@Akmalkady, same for me. I can start the game and can navigate through the menu, but I can't start a game session. I figure out theat the prompt is not empty there is an invisibile text inside.

It says:
"Invalid DDS file.
Press OK to ignore and risk data corruption.
Press Cancel to kill the program."

Furthermore there are 2 invisible buttons which you can click (cancel on left and OK on right side). By press on "OK" the invisible prompt returns. Cancel close the game.
And I got also some errors in log files.

"ERR| 0 | :: STEAM ERROR :: SteamwrapInitSafe(...); _st_error=2; _os_error=0;"

BTW: DDS Files are DirectDraw Surface Files from Microsoft DirectX, but Linux don't have DirectX.

My system is KDE-Neon 5.10.3

If I combine both errors it seems like that Cossacks except a different OS to run. I hope the developers will fix this issue asap.

Back to Windows for the time being :-(. Want to play multiplayer.

The game is working for me under Linux. I use Arch linux. What does not seem to work is cross OS multiplayer. I cannot join a game with a Windows user and he cannot join mine. The game tells me something like "mod mismatch". We both have no mods installed. Is Linux a different version than windows and therefore we cannot play multiplayer?

ERR| 0 | :: STEAM ERROR :: SteamwrapInitSafe(...); _st_error=2; _os_error=0;
