I am relatively new to Garuda and I have this issue where I can't open any game that would require Steam's Proton. I would try to launch the game through the Steam client and the game would not open at all. Native games do run properly, but all other games, even ones marked as platinum on protondb.com, don't even open.
i don´t no what u have try or choose on steam . but have activate steam play in settings and choose a proton version on the steam client ?
u can also choose to force a special version of proton for every game . example u choose proton 6.3-8 as default proton ... but u game need proton experimental u can set it on the game preference for this game only.
if u make that all and it wont work then post what error msg u got when u try to run the game
Do you try to install your games on a Linux filesystem? if you are trying to install games on NTFS (the filsesystem windows uses) for example it did not work for me. I had to convert my harddrive to BTRFS (the Linux filesystem) first before i could install proton games on it.
But if you are installing your games on the same drive your system is running on that isnt the problem. Your systems drive is BTRFS.
