- There is an issue installing MSI files in Proton 3.16-3. If you are using - Proton 3.16, please upgrade to a newer version.
- On Proton 3.16 some games may treat the XBox and Steam Controller trigger - axis as a joystick input causing controls to drift upwards and to the - left (this can be observed by running '/tmp/proton_$USER/run control' and - looking at the Test Joystick tab under Game Controllers.
A module for applying fixes at runtime to unsupported games with Steam Proton without changing game installation files. The idea is to include seperate fixes that are only loaded when a game matching that ID is run. This should keep the individual game fixes from affecting any other games. Applying the fixes at runtime should also them to persist after game updates.
If you want to be able to use fixes with winetricks it must be installed and be in your $PATH. Fixes that do not use winetricks will still work without winetricks being installed.
Winetricks can take a long time to run
If you want to use a win32 (32bit) prefix, you need to have wine installed and be in your $PATH. Currently creating a 32bit prefix with Proton wine doesn't work because the wineserver is already running by the time
user_settings.py is loaded.
Progress Dialog / Splashscreen
If Steam is in big picture mode, protonfixes will try to launch a similarly themed splash dialog using
cefpython (pictured above). Otherwise it will try to use
zenity to display a progress bar. If Steam is not in big picture mode, it will default to
zenity. The progress bar or splashscreen can help let you know that protonfixes is running a long task, for example installing
For the progress dialog to work, you need to have
zenity installed on your system, the steam-runtime version is broken. It can probably be installed using your distro's package manager.
For the big screen splashscreen to work, you need to have
cefpython3 installed. It can be installed with pip using
sudo pip install cefpython3.
