  • Prerequesite: if not already done, set up flatpak.
  • Install protontricks via flatpak with
flatpak install flathub com.github.Matoking.protontricks
  • Install a directx dependency with
flatpak run --branch=stable com.github.Matoking.protontricks 590830 d3dcompiler_47
  • Run sbox-dev.exe with
flatpak run --branch=stable com.github.Matoking.protontricks --no-runtime --no-bwrap -c "wine sbox-dev.exe" 590830
  • S&box dev mode should start and stay open until you close it or crashes as it so usually does on Linux.
  • After closing, should Steam still display s&box as running, you have to exit out of steam completely to stop it.
