Hello all ! I am trying to add a non steam game and steam only shows it searching and never finds any of my programs. I've posted in other forums with no luck. I can give more details if needed. I'm on linux mint 21.I am just wondering if any one can help me?
To clarify: I can launch games from steam that don't have a launcher. I open steam and get out of big picture mode.There is a plus sign on the bottom left of the steam page. I click that then click add a non steam game and it starts searching and never stops or finds my other programs. I usually can add programs when they pop up after searching.Now it just searches and doesn't find anything. I have used this method before to launch ea origin and ubisoft connect, then launch my game from origin and ubi connect.I do it this way so I can use my steam controller.
I have been able to do this before on Linux. I used to add bottles to steam and then I can use connect or origin to play the ubi and ea games. It was only my laptop doing this but now my desktop pc wont find anything it just searches. I can set up Linux for a standard install but more complicated thing if I get it to work I sometimes don't know how I got it done. I'm using the flatpak version of steam.
