Use these resources to find information about whether or not your application runs with wine.
- Valve's official issue tracker for Proton is a great place to find or open reports about game compatibility. Enter a game title or AppID in the search bar and see if anything's already been submitted.
- The Wine AppDB is another great place to look for and provide reports about compatibility.
- Lutris game installers often contain useful information about what might be required to get something working. Find your game, and click the arrow next to the button labeled "Install". This will give you a few options; select "View install script" to see a YAML-formatted file with installation steps.
If the game or program you are looking for isn't already documented, then that's a good opportunity to help change that!
