Hello, I'm, trying to get FreeSpace Open installed on Lubuntu 14.04 x64. I installed Diaspora about a month ago and that runs normally, so I decided to get Freespace2.
I got Freespace 2 from GOG and extracted the installer using WINE. Then I copied the contentse of the "c:/GOG Games/Freespace 2" directory to $HOME/Programs/Games/FreeSpace2. I used http://www.fsoinstaller.com/
Fresspace Open installer to install SCP. Found I had to extract the fs2_open_3.7.0.tar.bz2 to $HOME/Programs/Games/FreeSpace2.
Finally, I downloaded the wxlauncher to and built it in $HOME/Programs/Games/FreeSpace2/wxlauncher/wxlauncher-0.9.4/build
This all seemed ok, but executing the resulting $HOME/Programs/Games/FreeSpace2/wxlauncher/wxlauncher-0.9.4/build/wxlauncher doesn't seem to work right. Choosing the Diaspora profile still launches, but creating a new profile a pointing to $HOME/Programs/Games/FreeSpace2/ detects the fs2_open_3.7.0 in the "Basic Settings" Tab, but in the "Advanced Settings" tab the launchers reports "The Executable did not generate a flag file". If I hit play anyhow FreeSpace does not start, and the Launcher says FS2 Open exited with a status 127.
Trying to execute fs2_open_3.7.0 from the CLI says "error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
I'm not sure if this a problem of having two wxlaunchers (1 build when I was installing Diaspora, and the new one I built for FS2 Open) or something else.
I found this post http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=83543.0
from a while back, but that seems to be a windows permission problem.
