I am aware that linux is not the go to platform for gaming but I have resurrected and old PC that was faulty and it is still a decent spec.
I have installed linux mint on it 20.01 ( I am familiar with mint etc) , but my question is do any of you have any reconsiderations for using proton to run steam games as nothing seems to work and i thought it would be fun to just try it, I am of course following articles on ProtonDB etc but no joy, whilst I expect some pain I just cant help but feel i am doing something wrong it must be better than this ( I have tried over 20 titles that are listed as either gold or platinum on proton db website).
I have tried running each game with different versions of proton too again no joy.
