Hello folks,

I wanted to install diaspora armistice shattered in my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in a Toshiba satellite A660.

I tried to follow the instructions given on https://linuxgamecast.com/2012/09/l-g-c-how-to-install-diaspora-shattered-armistice-on-ubuntu-12-04/ and applying them on my machine with ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the difference of installing libwxgtk version 3 (not 2.8 as in the article) and in the point 10 about 25% appears this error:

<Diaspora dir>/wxlauncher/code/controls/ModList.cpp:1168:69: error: operands to ?: have different types ‘wxCStrData’ and ‘const wxString’    wxString::Format(_T("<a href='%s'>%s[/url]"), (item->forum != NULL) ?

I'm using the Linux sources published in http://diaspora.hard-light.net/downloads.html applying the corresponding patches (1.1 and 1.1.1), seemed that those files haven't been updated for Linux.

After that I deleted all re-extracted the files (diaspora armistice shattered and patches) and then I uninstalled the libwxgtk3.0 and installed libwxgtk2.8 (dev and dbg). Now when doing the same in the same point many (really many) errors appears, among them these ones:

So, what I'm doing wrong?. Any advice to achieve a successful compilation of the launcher?

PS: Sorry for the lengthly post.

The version of wxLauncher shipped with Diaspora is quite old now. Try using this version instead, it should work with Ubuntu 16.04, I've just compiled it successfully using Mint 18.1

@ niffiwan

Can you explain more please ?

I don't understand why compiling this program is so complicated :(

I see windwos has got a version with binary and linux has not it yet, so i used de windows version with wine/playonlinux and it's ok (more than windows ...), but is't  pity :(

i hope there will have another way :)

(ps : your captcha is very difficult for most poeple...)

To be honest, if you can use it on your machine, the best way to get Diaspora these days is to use Knossos. That way you avoid wxLauncher completely and get access to all the other FS2_Open engine games available.

+1 to using Knossos! Only issue will be  it currently doesn't support ubuntu 16.04 very well because ubuntu ship some prehistoric version of QT framework it uses. This should be fixed when 18.04 is released... next month in theory?
