CrossOver on Steam Deck?

Has anyone tried to install CrossOver (Linux) on Valve's Steam Deck? (If you don't know what this is, look here.) Steam Deck has SteamOS which uses Linux (Arch), so in theory it could support CrossOver. Not sure if the CPU is x86-compatible. If Steam Deck could run CrossOver, that would really open up that device!

Hi Mark,

CrossOver Linux is not supported on the steam deck (the major issue is dependency management).


Thanks, Meredith!

Apparently, Steam Deck has its own Wine app, called Proton. I have no idea how it compares to CrossOver!

Hi Mark,

The CodeWeavers team works with Valve on Proton! We might be biased, but we think it's pretty awesome :)


What you could try on the deck is set up an arch chroot environment and install crossover in that. I've had quite a lot of success with many things that wouldn't work on steamos because of dependencies
