Affiliation Note: ProtonUp-Qt is an independent tool for managing gaming compatibility tools. It is neither directly affiliated with the compatibility tool creators nor with the providers of the individual game launchers. However, we try to work with them where possible.

The official development takes place on GitHub at DavidoTek/ProtonUp-Qt, and the official website is We distribute ProtonUp-Qt as a Flatpak on Flathub and as an AppImage in the releases section of the GitHub repository. Additionally, we check the integrity of the AUR (protonup-qt and protonup-qt-bin) and Pacstall distribution on an irregular basis.
