Just a quick script that I wrote to fetch the latest versions of Proton GE.

Can be found here on my github: get_latest_proton_ge.

I also have this bash script to call this script loaded in my PATH.

cd /home/j/gits/get_latest_proton_ge/
poetry run python src/get_latest_proton_ge/

To use this just clone the repo, and then run a poetry install from inside the repository directory to populate the Python virtualenv.

Running get_proton anytime will fetch the latest version and install it. This is handier than typing all that out on the SteamDeck.

I also use it on my desktop.
