I have a couple of steam games for linux that I’d like to launch with lutris. I successfully added them to lutris library but when I try to start them, I get a “Required runner unavailable” popup message, which asks me if I want to install such missing runner.
Even if I click “yes”, nothing happens.
If I right-click on a steam game > then “configure” > then “install runners” > hence try to install the steam runner, nothing happens.
I tried to launch lutris from a terminal, and this is what I get:

Please go to <a href='http://steampowered.com'>http://steampowered.com</a> or install Steam with the package provided by your distribution.
It tells me that I have to install Steam. Of course, it’s already installed…
I use Fedora 31, and Steam is installed using flatpak.
