Can't launch 3D games on Steam or Heroic

I can't launch games either on Steam or with Heroic game launcher.
As soon as I launch GTA 5 whether on Steam or with Heroic game launcher I receive the same error

No DirectX 10 or 11 adapter or runtime found. Please install latest DirectX runtime or install a compatible DirectX 10 or 11 video card.

Otherwise for other games like Control they open and close instantly.
On the other hand for games like Offworld it works very well.
I tried to start them with the following arguments but it didn't change anything.

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=winedbg.exe=d %command%

PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command%


DXVF_CONFIG_FILE=/home/tsilvercat/gta_dxvf.conf PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 WINEDLLOVERRIDES=winedbg.exe=d %command%

Vulkan is installing DXVK too
Then it's beyond my competence.

Thanks for your reply and sorry for the Google translation.

Here are a few things you can try:

  • Uninstall amdvlk
sudo pacman -R amdvlk lib32-amdvlk
  • Switch to Proton 7 if you are using Proton Experimental
  • For Heroic, manually install DXVK 1.10.3 instead of latest.
  • Install 32-bit Nvidia drivers:
sudo pacman -S lib32-nvidia-470xx-utils
  • Run a game from terminal and post the output of it

Don't use this, it decreases performance.

The name of DX 9-11 -> Vulkan translation library is DXVK.
