Hey there! To use PCSX2 on your Steam Deck, you'll first need to install PCSX2, which is a PlayStation 2 emulator. Start by switching your Steam Deck to Desktop Mode. Then, download PCSX2 for Linux from the official website or through a package manager if you're comfortable with that. Install it, and once it's set up, you can switch back to Gaming Mode and add PCSX2 as a non-Steam game to your library. From there, launch it directly from SteamOS and start playing your PS2 games! Remember, you'll need your own game files to play.

Just boot into Desktop Mode and grab PCSX2 from the web. Install, add to Steam, and bam, PS2 glory on your Deck.

Gotta say, it's way easier to just stick to Steam games, PCSX2 can be a hassle to set up and might not run smoothly on the Deck.
