ProtonUp-Qt, the very useful installer app to get different compatibility layers on Steam Deck and Linux desktop, has version 2.7.7 up adding in new tools. This is one of those applications that just keeps on getting better all the time, something to keep in the toolbox ready for when you need it.

It allows you to install the likes of GE-Proton, Wine-GE, Luxtorpeda and much more inside Steam, Lutris, Heroic Games Launcher, Bottles and so on.

Version 2.7.7 adds in:

  • Added the NorthstarProton compatibility tool.
  • Added the Steam-Play-None compatibility tool.
  • Added D8VK for Lutris.
  • Added VKD3D for Lutris.
  • Added ProtonDB ratings to the game list.
  • Added an indicator if ProtonUp-Qt can't connect to the internet.

And it also fixes these:

  • Fixed the game list support for Steam Flatpak.
  • Fixed the game list not working since a Steam update (see #155).

Want a guide on using it? See my previous article and video.

A tad off-topic; awhile ago I thought I successfully installed DXVK 2.0 for Lutris (via ProtonUp), but when configuring anything 2.0 doesn't appear as an option

I have the same thing. I had to write it manually.

I can see a new VKD3D entry for Lutris but not any D8VK one. Am I missing something?
