Need Help Setting Up Libretro on Steamdeck

I bought a steam deck a while ago, and I just am getting into emulation on here. If I download retroarch outside of Lutris, it recognizes my steam deck controller, but won’t recognize my rom that I am testing with. I also prefer the ability to just launch a game through steam instead of having to load it through the retroarch interface.

If I launch Libretro to set up the controller, I get absolutely no input and have to use the touch screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just to bump this and kind of tell what I think is going on. It feels like Lutris is translating the steam deck into “some buttons pressed” but I don’t know how it is translating that, and I don’t know why Lutris isn’t just passing the steam deck controller through to Libretro.
