I hope someone can steer me to the correct forum? Please note that I have very little experience with Linux.
I installed linux mint 18.1 on my newly built gaming pc, because win7 doesn't support the newer hardware, and I don't trust win10 to not spy on me.
I'm using Wine and Play On Linux, and have installed Steam so that I could play No Man's Sky.
The game loaded, and is playable, but the updates are not being installed automatically, as they should be.
I contacted Hello Games, they told me to contact Steam, who told me to contact Hello Games.
Is there a way to manually install the updates? Why might Steam not be installing them?
Any help or insight will be appreciated.
Here is some system information, I hope it helps.
