    The new version of Steam has some new certificate bundled in, so you have to modify a file and add some code for Steam to install games.

    1. Navigate to your game's wineprefix: /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/gamename/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/config/
    2. Open config.vdf with a text editor
    3. Copy this code below
      Code:
      "CS"        "valve511.steamcontent.com;valve530.steamcontent.com;valve548.steamcontent.com;valve539.steamcontent.com;valve519.steamcontent.com;valve555.steamcontent.com;valve504.steamcontent.com;valve529.steamcontent.com;valve558.steamcontent.com;valve500.steamcontent.com;valve561.steamcontent.com;valve532.steamcontent.com;valve540.steamcontent.com;valve502.steamcontent.com;valve544.steamcontent.com;valve528.steamcontent.com;valve556.steamcontent.com;valve520.steamcontent.com;valve542.steamcontent.com;valve538.steamcontent.com;valve551.steamcontent.com;valve521.steamcontent.com;valve564.steamcontent.com;valve516.steamcontent.com;valve535.steamcontent.com;valve541.steamcontent.com;valve533.steamcontent.com;valve536.steamcontent.com;valve557.steamcontent.com;valve559.steamcontent.com;valve537.steamcontent.com;valve508.steamcontent.com;valve525.steamcontent.com;valve565.steamcontent.com;valve566.steamcontent.com;valve514.steamcontent.com;valve545.steamcontent.com;valve517.steamcontent.com;valve547.steamcontent.com;valve549.steamcontent.com;valve503.steamcontent.com;valve515.steamcontent.com;valve506.steamcontent.com;valve562.steamcontent.com;valve526.steamcontent.com;valve543.steamcontent.com;valve522.steamcontent.com;valve518.steamcontent.com;valve509.steamcontent.com;valve550.steamcontent.com;valve552.steamcontent.com;valve505.steamcontent.com;valve553.steamcontent.com;valve512.steamcontent.com;valve546.steamcontent.com;valve554.steamcontent.com;valve510.steamcontent.com;valve563.steamcontent.com;valve501.steamcontent.com;valve531.steamcontent.com;valve523.steamcontent.com;valve524.steamcontent.com;valve507.steamcontent.com;valve560.steamcontent.com;valve567.steamcontent.com;valve513.steamcontent.com;valve1601.steamcontent.com;valve164.steamcontent.com;valve1615.steamcontent.com;valve1602.steamcontent.com;valve1604.steamcontent.com;valve1608.steamcontent.com;valve1603.steamcontent.com;valve1606.steamcontent.com;valve1609.steamcontent.com;valve1618.steamcontent.com;valve1617.steamcontent.com;valve1613.steamcontent.com;valve1607.steamcontent.com;valve1611.steamcontent.com;valve1614.steamcontent.com;valve1619.steamcontent.com;valve1616.steamcontent.com;valve1612.steamcontent.com;valve1610.steamcontent.com;valve165.steamcontent.com;valve1605.steamcontent.com;valve954.steamcontent.com;valve955.steamcontent.com;valve904.steamcontent.com;valve901.steamcontent.com;valve957.steamcontent.com;valve953.steamcontent.com;valve956.steamcontent.com;valve950.steamcontent.com;valve905.steamcontent.com;valve952.steamcontent.com;valve902.steamcontent.com;valve907.steamcontent.com;valve958.steamcontent.com"
    4. Go to the line
      "InstallConfigStore"
      {
      "Software"
      {
      "Valve"
      {
      "Steam"
      {
      "CM"

    5. Paste in a new line under the "CM" line with all the IP Addresses
    6. Save config.vdf
    7. Restart Steam

    What's up with steam!?
    This is amateurish as hell. Is this what we are to expect from Linux Steam?

    To say I'm disappointed just doesn't cover this.

    This is Windows Steam in Wine.
    I'm sure Wine developers will roll out a compatibility, but until then we have to do it manually.

    This happens a few times a year with Steam updates. Breaks Wine and we have to do something manually to make it work again.

    In fact, most of the older versions of Wine do not even work with Steam anymore. So if there is a game that only works on an old version of Wine, you can't play it anymore.

    Hence why I try to play mostly GOG games.

    A real shame.

    You are not going to believe this!
    Valve went ahead and added all of those domains to the config.vdf file for us.
    Now we don't have to manually add them.
    Probably because Proton was having issues without them?

    Very nice!
