Based on the FAQ you can also run non-steam games .. as far as i know there are versions running on linux for some launchers (Heroic Games Launcher for Epic for example) so this could be an option as well .. i will test this for sure!
"Can I run non-Steam games through Proton on Steam Deck?
Yes, you can run non-Steam games through Proton."
At least for remote play PS4 / PS5 you can have a look herenow that was what I talk about. I saw some mention about running non steam games on steam deck. so I would be able to run ubisoft/gog/epic games through steam os too ?
and what about remote play ps5 and xbox ?
if I could do all that, wow, I wont need to install windows then.
This brings us to the second change, just as important and relevant. Valve has made it possible to use Proton for non-Steam games, directly from Steam. And it works! Yesterday I just grabbed my GOG version of The Witcher 3, and gave it to Steam as a .exe (add non-steam game) and ticked the box in the properties to “use Wine Compatibility Tool” or something like that. And it worked, just like that!
It depends on what you're trying to install. If you're installing a game, you'll be doing that either through lutris, installing it through wine, or if it's from EPIC you'll use the heroic launcher.If this is the case then how do i download a simple file or game on desktop mode,as when the file is downloaded it asks me to open with.....how do i get the game installed to the desktop I already tried an app called bottles and that didn’t work I was trying to install farming simulator 22 from there website
It's worth a try tho, isn't it? As long as you make sure you won't get banned like in Destiny.You cannot download other games on other platforms if you do not have Windows. Just using Steam will not work if you don't have Windows. It's because Windows controls and secures your systems. Steam is not recommended to be used instead of Windows because it's limited and may ruin the app downloaded.
Um... No. Not only are people doing it, but they are making videos about on youtube. In fact, I decided to get Kena:Bridge of Spirits because of a review of the game I saw that was running on proton. That's from Epic, by the way.You cannot download other games on other platforms if you do not have Windows. Just using Steam will not work if you don't have Windows.
