Hi, everyone.
I am new to wine and I am trying to running steam vr in wine.
But it always fails to start the vrserver.exe.
Is it possible to run steamvr in wine?

My wine version is 4.0.1 and ubuntu is 18.04.

Could you post a terminal output?

I used wine to run a windows vr game which invoked the windows version of steamvr.
When I tried to get the error log of vrsersion, it always quited and nothing came out.

But I have found some posts which sayed the linux version of steamvr should be used. How could the apps in wine find the linux version of steamvr outside?

By replacing the original windows-version of steamvr with a wrapper-library that forwards all the calls to the linux-version (like wine does that for a lot of other stuff). The easiest way to achieve that, is most likely using the Linux-version of Steam together with Proton (see https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton) to start the game.
