How To Install And Play The Outer Worlds On Linux – Steam & GloriousEggRoll's Proton-GE Method
This video covers how to install and run The Outer Worlds on Linux using GloriousEggRoll's Proton-GE build if you have purchased it through Steam.
My previous video for running this game on Linux if you have purchased it through the Epic Games Store.
This game does not work with the latest Proton build (5.13-1), so you need to use the latest GloriousEggRoll's Proton-GE build.
Download the latest build by clicking on the releases tab on the right hand side of the page, scroll down to the assets section, and download the Proton-GE tar.gz archive.
Once downloaded, extract this folder.
Next navigate to your Home directory, enable hidden files, and open the .steam folder, from there, click on the root symlink.
Within that directory, create a new folder called compatibilitytools.d and copy the Proton-GE folder into this folder.
Once done, restart and open up Steam.
Next, right click on the properties of the game, tick the Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool and select the Proton-GE build from the list.
Now when the game is launched, it will use the Proton-GE build instead of the default Proton one.
