I have recently installed Steam and downloaded A Plague Tale:Innocence, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
A Plague Tale:Innocence in particular because A) It is rated Platinum on protondb.com and B) It worked fine on this machine when I had it as dual boot. In other words I know it should work fine.
At the moment what is happening is this:
I click the icon for A Plague Tale:Innocence
The Steam window comes up telling me it is about to launch the game.
The screen goes blank
We go back to where we were
I have installed proton 5.0.9 and checked all the user question boards I can but I can find no-one else with the same problem.
Any help gratefully received, I have the feeling I missing something simple.
I would rate myself a noob in the world in Linux.
