what is the difference this proton-git with proton?

rabcor commented on 2018-11-03 04:08

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?

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

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.

So, what do you have to do with a wine prefix to get a game in Wine to use the 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?
