Use the same steam files beetwen Windows and PoP OS:

Hey, my main objective is to create a common exfat drive on which I can install games that are able to run both under windows and ubuntu. For this purpose I decided to utilize a 1TB HDD exfat and in order to accomplish the main objective I’ve followed these steps:

  • I’ve downloaded RE:2 Remake, Dragon’s Dogma DA and Monster Hunter World through Steam for Windows, selecting the HDD for the steamlibrary
  • I moved on ubuntu. Downloaded Steam and selected the same folder as the main library.
  • The games are being detected so the only things steam downloads are the shaders for Vulkan and OpenGL and I can see the games ready under my library
  • I’ve updated proton to 4.11

Here comes the obstacle: when I click on play, the games won’t launch. It happens with every single game. If I try to download the games on the ubuntu HDD and play them through proton the games work fine.

Am I missing a step or what? Should I need to configure a WINEPREFIX for each of them? thank you!

Having problems with adding a new Steam Library:

[Using Fedora 31 KDE]

I want to add a steam library on one of my hard drives. The location of the HDD is /run/media/RobertTheAlien/3TBHDD but unfortunately when I try to add a new library, steam doesn’t show me /media. Any ideas on how to add it?

I am new to Linux in general so I would not be surprised if it is a simple fix but I couldn’t find any questions like mine or solutions on the net. Hope you can help me and thanks!

Adding Gallium HUD command to GOG desktop shortcut:

Is it possible? How? I want that the Gallium HUD automatically gets enabled everytime I run the GOG game through the desktop shortcut.

I already know how to enable the Gallium HUD in the terminal.

Thanks.

Does Save Data Transfer Between Windows and Linux?:

Hey guys, as I move from Windows to Linux I’m wondering if I am going to need to manually transfer my save data over or if Steam does it automatically. I’m fairly certain I’ll need to do a manual transfer for my EGS games, but if Steam does it automatically that would be ideal. Does anyone know about this? Thanks! (First Post)

Getting 8 – 13 fps playing Deep Rock Galactic, is it time I got hardware?:

Help. What do I do? It used to be quite playable, but now I can barely rotate the camera to look around.

Was tempted to buy this game, but I’m not sure if it would work. There’s a NATIVE tag & there’s a ton of negative reviews. So what is it?:
