Whenever I just drag and drop and run it in love by itself, it finds. the .so just fine (in the same directory as my .lua source files). But when I zip up and archive into a .love file, it can no longer find the .so. Not sure how to fix it, it says it's looking in the lua path files for it, but still not finding it. Yet it works fine if I just run the source through the Lua app.
I would also like to know the answer to this - I'm running into the same issue. I think the problem is more in how love2d is handling files in fused mode vs non-fused mode, but still I would like to know how others solved this problem.

For what it's worth, I found out through some trial and error that having .so files in the saves folder works. However, this would then require an install script to set up this dependency before the game is initially launched which is not ideal.

TLDR: if somone knows and could explain a way to bundle .so and .dylib files in the fused mode love2d game app for distribution on Steam, it would be greatly appreciated.

You could try my library which is FFI-based, using only the binaries provided by Valve:

Tried it, and had other issues.
