Steam isn't seeing GE-Proton, any suggestions?
Nanobang 19 Jan
My info:
-Distro: Xubuntu 22.04
-CPU: Ryzen 9 3900x
-GPU: Radeon rx 6600 xt
-mesa: 22.2.5 from kisak/turtle repo
-kernal: 5.15.0-58-generic
-ProtonUp-QT 2.7.7, appimage
-Latest Steam stable,
-Steam installed using Steam Installer from Xubuntu's repos.

What's been done and what happened:
Using protonup-qt, I've installed GE-Proton7-43 and 7-45. protonup-qt installed them into /home/me/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/. I've double checked, the files are there, and everything seems in order, yet neither appears in the "Force compatibility tool drop-down".

What I've tried thus far and the results:
-I've restarted Steam and the computer several times, but the problem persists.
-In ProtonUp-QT's "show game list", I've specified GE-Proton 45 for Elex (the game I'm wanting to do this for), but the problem persists.
-I've checked if GE-Proton7-43 or 7-45 appears for any other games in Steam and, no, it doesn't.

Anybody have something like this problem, insights, or suggestions? :)

I haven't tried it, but the official source says: ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d
So you are in the wrong directory.

Thanks for that. I'll give that a try later today.

UPDATE: I copied /compatibilitytools.d into ~/.steam/root, and Steam saw that. Since it was protonup-qt that originally put it in ~/.local/share/Steam, I just never questioned it. I'll file an issue with the project about that.
