How do you add Steam VR games to Oculus Home?

I clicked unknown sources, but nothing is showing up still.  What steps do I need to take next?

Thanks!

    You don't (well, unless I've missed something - happy if I have!). You need to launch the games from Steam instead.

    I don't know about a Steam Library game, ie a game launched from within the Steam interface. But I have IL-2 and it currently only uses SteamVR, and it did get added to my Oculus Home Library for launching from within it. It added it after launching it for the first time after this update came through.

    Ok, I figured it out.  With this newest update, click on on unknown sources.  Then, have the oculus app open and launch steam vr.  This will add steamvr's icon to your library.  Then, launch a game, and that game will now be added to the library.  Just launch a game to add the icon.

    I've got a few games where Oculus Home has created a link, but the link does nothing. I can't remove the link and try again as it's been stated if you remove the link it won't re-add it.

    Is there no configuration file you can directly edit to the correct Steam game launch address?

    Yeah having that problem with DCS as well, have couple versions and neither link in OH  will launch the game properly. It launches to the hangar, but no menu gui at all. All ok launching outside of Oculus Home.

    Yep that's exactly what I get. Also works fine launching the games from Steam menu.

    I also have Steam games that don't show up on Oculus home menu (some do though I have no idea why) but the ones that don't show, I simply open Steam from Oculus home go to Steam home and launch from there.
