I have Ubuntu 22.04 and Steam with Proton. I added the EA Origin installer to Steam using Proton Experimental and I am able to play Origin games through it with no issues. However, each time I start it it re-installs Origin. This isn't a huge problem, but I was trying to add the Origin.exe file to Steam so I could skip this step of re-installing.
I added the Origin.exe file and I can start Origin, but it doesn't see the games I have installed. It has a "Locate Game" option if I click the gear icon on a game, but no matter what I put in it either says the path is too long, or it thinks it's a system folder if it starts with a ".", or some other kind of error.
The Ubuntu path to the file I'm trying to load (Mass Effect 3) is:
./.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/compatdata/4132860189/pfx/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Origin Games/Mass Effect Legendary Edition/Game/ME3/Binaries/Win64/MassEffect3.exe
I've tried all kinds of combinations in Origin, like:
- \Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect Legendary Edition\Game\ME3\Binaries\Win64\MassEffect3.exe
- \Origin Games\Mass Effect Legendary Edition\Game\ME3\Binaries\Win64\MassEffect3.exe
- \Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect Legendary Edition\Game\ME3\
but I always get one of those errors. I'm not sure what Origin is looking for. What can I put in to get Origin to find it? Thanks!
