Perhaps because the game doesn't have Linux support? If it's not launching, regardless as to what one attempts to do, there's likely an obvious reason as to why...

Proton isnt exactly Linux, it tries to mimic it

MANY games that launches on steam deck don't have linux support
that's why you have proton or lutris that works with WINE
it's like running ps2 and wii games via emulators, these games don't even support windows but can run via emulator

here WINE, stands for wine is not an emulator, is a compatibility software if i remember well
Proton is a translation layer used by SteamOS in order to allow Windows based games to run on Linux. Valve themselves have stated that there is potential for games to either not run at all, or to have various bugs or other issues. They're also working through the massive library of games to try and ensure compatibility.

If you're wondering why games like Elden Ring or Hogwarts Legacy got compatible ratings so early on, it was due to their crazy popularity. Barely any is currently playing it (Minecraft Legends) on Steam, likely because it's a gamepass game, so Valve probably won't be incentived to fix it right away. Hell, Forza 5 has been out for 2 years now and it has double the concurrent player count on Steam.

So it's not a matter of if, but when. You just have to be patient, or make the effort to partition your internal drive, install Windows 11 and download Minecraft Legends on there. It'll work fine as has been demonstrated multiple times on YouTube. Valve did give you that option, ya know.

its kinda sad that that's the only option for now, guess its time for Linux hacking...

no need to install lutris here cause, well the steam deck already has proton
on my side lutris was nice for games on ubisoft and epic etc, also games that just wern't on steam or any launchers, now it's just better to use proton as it got improved a lot
