How to Install And Run Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Linux – Steam Proton ⁄ Missing Cutscenes Fix
This video covers installing and running Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Linux using a custom version of Proton that fixes the cutscenes.
Step 1 - Install Latest Driver for Your GPU
This can be done multiple ways, but depending on your distribution, you will usually have some form of GUI tool that handles this task for you.
Alternatively, you can use the Terminal.
For example, for Ubuntu distributions with nVidia hardware, use the following Terminal commands in sequence:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-460
sudo apt install libvulkan1 libvulkan1:i386
Step 2 – Install Steam and Enable Proton
Steam can be installed through your distribution’s package manager, either using a GUI tool or through the Terminal.
For example, on Ubuntu based distribution, it is the following command:
sudo apt install steam
Once installed, launch Steam, apply any updates and sign into your account.
By default, you will not be able to install the game it is has not been officially whitelisted by Valve as Proton compatible.
But this can be overwritten by navigating to Steam / Steam Play / Advanced, ticking the Enable Steam Play for all other titles, and selecting the latest version of Proton.
Reboot Steam once done.
To fix the cutscenes, we need to use a custom version of Proton.
I recommend Glorious Eggroll’s Proton-GE build, which can be downloaed from the Release tab on the right-hand side.
Scroll down to the latest release, and download and extract the tar.gz archive, and once this archive is extracted, make a copy of the Proton-GE folder.
Next open up your Home directory, and enable Hidden files, navigate to. steam / root and create a new folder called compatibilitytools.d, and inside this folder, paste the Proton-GE folder you copied earlier.
Restart Steam if still open, and now when you right click on the Properties of the game and choose the Compatibility tab, you can tick the Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool and select the Proton-GE build from the list.
