    It seems that Unreal Engine 4.26 broke the proton installation for us. A workaround can be found in this thread: https://steamcommunity.com/app/1128920/discussions/6/3123786356699100510/

    Manjaro Linux:
    Per ProtonDB suggestion (in link noted above), but not deleting UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe --->
    cd '/home/xyz/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/EVERSPACE™ 2/Engine/Extras/Redist/en-us'
    save ./UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe as ./UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe_orig
    rm ./UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe
    ln -s /usr/bin/true UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe # Everspace II is running again.
