With Valve recently releasing Proton 9, as the latest major update to the Windows compatibility layer for Linux / Steam Deck, there were some download issues that should now be solved.

With the fixes coming in a Steam Client Beta that's available for Desktop and Steam Deck. Although curiously it's noted to be a Beta, but my Steam Deck OLED gave me the update on the Stable channel. Either way, it should roll out for everyone soon.

Here's all that changed (it's the same across Desktop and Steam Deck):

General

  • Fixed desktop notifications no longer displaying after editing notes for a game
  • Fixed download notification for newly downloaded DLC not showing the correct name.

Linux

  • Fixed problems downloading Proton 9.

Steam Input

  • Fix Regression for "Custom Deadzones" not applying correctly.
  • UI: Joystick Mouse Deadzone controls now use the common Deadzone Editor.
  • Added "Invert Command Binding" for FlickStick's Outer Ring Command.
  • Added an option to allow the FlickStick to trigger a Flick Turn if the stick is thrown when the action set/action layer/mode shift is activated.
  • Reset Camera to Horizon/Turn Camera to Face Direction/ Turn Camera 360: these actions will still work even if Flick Stick or Gyro to Mouse are removed from your settings. Dots per 360 must first be calibrated using those two modes, however.
 

Note: this beta was re-released to fix a regression in opening the desktop onscreen keyboard.

Confusing title. "Steam PC"? I'd personally use something like "Steam Client Beta & Deck Beta" to describe it.

Steam PC immediately fired off my bull$#!t detector thinking it was a new product, but it did take me a second to realise what the article was actually about. :p

Unfortunately, I can't download any more updates on my Deck. Every time I do, I get an Update Error, saying that an error was encountered during the update process. Apparently this has something to do with the 5 GHz band, but I disabled that and it still didn't work. I also tried modifying the UEFI BIOS time and that didn't work either. :(

Steam...on a PC. It's pretty normal compact wording.

Hehe, of course a valid combination, my initial thought was about another kind of Steam Machine first too though.
But who knows, maybe I'll be the meta word, including all platforms Steam runs on. We know Windows PC and Linux PC, haven't heard of Mac PC yet, but Steam PC... unifies them all!
