Not sure if I'm missing something but going from 2:GE.Proton8.30-1 to 2:GE.Proton8.31-1 errors out every time. Error:

libdisplay-info is installed

Am I missing something?

Edit: Fixed in 1:GE_Proton8_32-1

how do i select proton-ge after install? i only see valve proton listed or does this modify the system proton to use ge instead of valves?

trying to run games with virtual desktop enabled simply crashes, trying with winecfg crashes winecfg too, any idea? turns out this is a problem with Proton Experimental too, I wonder if that's an upstream problem...

Does proton-ge require ffmpeg4.4 or does it also work with ffmpeg package (6.x)?

@adambyte @Jaja it seems like if I go to the Preferences, go to the Third Party tab, and click "Clean" under the build directory, it updates this package correctly. Thanks for your comment, it's what made me to think of doing that.

It looks like Add/Remove Software's default build dir is under /tmp, so Manjaro users should be able to do fix this issue by pressing the Clean button in the GUI or by running rm -rf /tmp/pamac-build-%USER% in the terminal.

Gotta love the Linux community :D

@adambyte @KevinFumbles No, that is not how it works. The file "pleasenote.install" is to be found within the git repo itself that is hosted on the AUR along with the PKGBUILD file and other stuff. These are not files referenced by the source=() array, but used by makepkg command according to instructions stated by the PKGBUILD.

It seems to me like pamac has some issues to clone the repo correctly. Some suggestions:

  1. If you can find the folder that pamac uses to clone the repo, you could delete it and try again. I would look for it under ~/.cache, but I do not know how pamac works in detail.

  2. You could skip using the AUR for this package and use a pacman repo that has this package already pre-build for you. It is still the same package, though. You could use for this.

  3. You could build the package yourself without any AUR helper:

$ git clone
$ cd proton-ge-custom-bin
$ makepkg
$ pacman -U *.zst

@KevinFumbles @Jaja I'm getting the same problem. As a total AUR noob, I'm guessing that the problem is that the file pleasenote.install isn't listed under the package's "Sources," and so it doesn't get downloaded and added to the build environment, and then the build process gets aborted by a sanity check that is meant to confirm the existence of all required files.

@Jaja whoops, didn't see your reply until now. I'm using Add/Remove Software on Manjaro, which is pamac under the hood. If I run "pamac update" manually, I actually get a more helpful error message:

Preparing... Synchronizing package databases... Cloning proton-ge-custom-bin build files... Generating proton-ge-custom-bin information... ==> ERROR: install file (pleasenote.install) does not exist or is not a regular file. Error: Failed to prepare transaction: Failed to generate proton-ge-custom-bin information

I see the pleasenote.install file under the makepkg "install" option from the PKGBUILD. Not exactly sure what this is though, and why it's not there for me. Is this something that's supposed to be in the release tar?

Why does in-game dxvk hud always tells me I'm running with dxvk 1.10.1-async, though package seems to contain dxvk builds from git (2.0)? I tried manually replacing libraries in game's pfx, tried changing version in proton-ge's dxvk dirs in /usr/share/steam/compatibilitytools.d/proton-ge-custom/files/, but nothing helps at all. I tried doing the same thing with proton-ge-custom package, thinking it was this package's prebuilt error, but no. That's been bugging me for several months and I still can't find an answer
