To the people getting the wine/wined3d-interop.h: No such file or directory the 4.17 proton requires a wine-valve version >=4.16, install wine-valve-git instead.

After some consideration, because new versions of proton require code that has not been released as a stable version yet any kind of "stable" package for wine-valve is going to be hell to maintain and always lagging slightly behind.

If anyone wants to continue a stable package despite this, I've disowned the package so you're welcome to give it a shot, but I'd advise users to just install wine-valve-git instead.

(No changes to the proton PKGBUILD necessary).

This is in an early state right now. vrclient_x64 needs the custom bundled version of wine, which I plan to make another package for. For now all that's packaged is lsteamclient.

One little problem, when you download the archive, it doesn't contain the sub modules. All those folders are empty. This is the git clone line from the Valve site:

git clone --recurse-submodules proton

I get an error vrclient_main.c:23:10: fatal error: wine/wined3d-interop.h: No such file or directory 23|#include "wine/wined3d-interop.h"

I saw this line in the PKGBUILD but I can't figure out where it originates from. I can file a file name wined3d-interop.idl in wine/include/wine Is this the file the sed is suppose to operate on?

sed -i 's,wined3d-interop.h,wine/wined3d-interop.h,g' vrclient_x64/vrclient_x64/*

I've created the stable wine-valve package so if you change the dependency to just wine-valve both that package and wine-valve-git will be able to fulfill it.

The issue when I was packaging it was that wine-valve had no tags/releases on github. Valve seems to have fixed that so you should be able to make a package which follows the point release.

Never mind, I am a dumb person who doesn't read pinned comments.

I'll try to work out that stable package, but since wine-valve-git already defines a provide to wine-valve you don't have to wait for the stable package to change the depend to just wine-valve. You can probably change the openvr-git dependency to its stable equivalent as well, provided there are any API incompatibilities or use of development package features I missed.

Proton is basically a meta-package that pulls in a bunch of dependencies and packages them together. Without wine-valve, you don't have much proton left. As far as I am aware there are no official binaries for wine-valve, so you will need to rebuild it if you want to update.

MagicAndWires commented on 2019-09-17 20:05

Is proton really dependant on the development versions of wine-valve and openvr specifically or does it work with any version of those packages?

With both of them being fairly large packages for simple dependencies, I'd prefer not to have to build them with every single update.

OPENVRPATHS-NOTFOUND Please install SteamVR SDK to continue..

@JoshH100 please accept proton-git package, that I had orphaned.

wine-valve-git has been updated and I've successfully installed that package. When I try to update proton, however, I get this error message:

ld: relocatable linking with relocations from format elf32-i386 (lsteamclient.m35YzV.o) to format elf64-x86-64 (lsteamclient.UlQ5S9.o) is not supported

and the build fails.

Updated to 3.16-8, thanks for the flag. I'm looking into getting wine-valve-git working...
