Alternative dependency wine-valve-git is orphaned and is hardcoded to proton-5.0 branch.

updated (by copying from proton) - builds for me but as with proton, i'm not 100% convinced it's all right now

This package is failing because of the same reasons the proton package used to fail: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/proton/#comment-746010

Should be an easy fix.

It's failing because it's trying to used sed on a folder. sed -i 's/openvr_v0.9.16//g' vrclient_x64/vrclient_x64/* can be changed to sed -i 's/openvr_v0.9.16//g' vrclient_x64/vrclient_x64/*.* to resolve the issue.

I am not sure if this whole thing is necessary though.

Edit: Oh and I get a compiler error:

winegcc -c -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt  -I. -DSTEAM_API_EXPORTS  -o steamclient_main.o steamclient_main.c

@EndlessEden, Same here.

Wont build; sed: couldn't edit vrclient_x64/vrclient_x64/json: not a regular file

I think this package requires xorgproto now.

Hi, there seems to be a version problem when upgrading from proton-git v7.0.1 to proton-git v8.0.1 after pacman builds and installs the package, pacman says the new package is still v7.0.1 and not v8.0.1

What can I do to remedy this? Thanks. Dave.

@Rulatir @Kyatik @rabcor Ideally this package would allow you to use a local build of proton within Steam per the instructions on the Github page. I haven't had a chance to go through the PKGBUILDs so this package make not install everything needed to do this yet.

I'll have to go through the PKGBUILDs of this, proton-git, and the proton package. Ideally, you could simply symlink a folder into ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/ and be able to use the latest/customized proton.

@Rulatir

you better to ask @JoshH100, I just made his proton package to use git, and abandoned it in flavor of him.

@yurikoles

THIRDING the question asked by @rabcor and @Kyatik

commented on 2019-03-05 17:13 (UTC)

@yurikoles

How exactly does this package work? Proton is typically bundled with (and run through) steam, is this an independent package, e.g. will I be able to run applications through some command like $proton instead of $wine to use proton instead?

(copied from rabcor's comment because not answered)

If I want to use the proton installation compiled by this package with steam, how would I go about it?

Version issue is now fixed.

Edit PKGBUILD and change pkgver() to following code as mentioned in the https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines

pkgver() {
  local version count

  cd "${pkgname}"

  version="$(git describe --abbrev=0 --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g')"
  count="$(git rev-list --count $(git describe --abbrev=0 --tags)..)"
  printf '%s.%s' "${version#proton-3.7*-}" "${count}"
}

@Kiwii I'm not sure, you better to ask @Forty-Bot in proton package, I had just modified it to compile from branch insteam of release.

Kiwii commented on 2018-09-25 23:48 (UTC)

So, what do you have to do with a wine prefix to get a game in Wine to use the lsteamclient.dll.so and communicate with the native Steam? Does it need any overrides or do I have to copy dll files from the native Steam client's legacycompat folder somewhere?

Or am I vastly misunderstanding the intention of this package?
