There’s another Crankshaft plugin that I wanted to highlight: Compatibility Tools Manager. With this plugin installed on the Steam Deck, you can quickly obtain the latest version of GE-Proton without having to resort to Desktop Mode. Just install it, then you will be prompted to restart the Deck. It’s that simple.

ge-proton7-28 installed

You can see here after installing the latest version (7-28 at the time of writing this) and restarting the Deck, it’s now available in the compatibility list. With the same plugin I can also remove any installed versions that I have.

That’s all I wanted to say. If you’re on desktop, you can refer to my ProtonUp-Qt guide for getting GE-Proton installed.
