ProtonUp-Qt is the fantastic and simple way to download and upgrade the Linux compatibility tools Proton-GE, Luxtorpeda, Boxtron or Roberta for Steam and works with both Lutris and Heroic Games Launcher too.
This allows you to easy get these external tools, and have them added to Steam directly so you can pick them as you preferred compatibility option for running games. Proton-GE can sometimes run games that the official Proton can not, Luxtorpeda gives you access to lots of native Linux game engines (like OpenMW for Morrowind), Boxtron for native DOSBox and Roberta for ScummVM. Add to that the ability to easily add newer Wine to Lutris and Heroic and Linux gaming looks easier than ever.
The latest release version 2.5.0 adds these changes:
- Added a "batch update" feature for Proton
- Support Lutris Flatpak
- Custom install directory GUI
- Various bug fixes
Using it is so ridiculously simple, I love it. Download it, run it, click a few buttons - done. It really doesn't get better than this.
