Problems with open freespace in linux
(sorry for my english ;))
I've installed Open freespace 3.6.9 on ubuntu 7.04 and with fs2_open script I can run it. But I have problem in game, because when i try to use numbers (for example for communication), it's not work. Even if I try to change controls to some nuber, it did not work...it seems like a din't even press it...
My second problem is with FRED, because I cannot run it with wine...is there some linux FRED for linux?

FRED works well so long as you use a new enough version of Wine (0.9.47 or better).  There can be issues actually starting FRED though, which you can tell because you'll get some sort of "can't run from root" message.  This is actually fixed in CVS builds, but in older builds you can start it with a command like this (assuming that you are in the same directory as the binary): wine `winepath -w fred2_open_3_6_9.exe`.  What that does is make sure to pass the complete windows path to the EXE, and then it should start up fine.  Newer code doesn't require this, but this old method will still work the same with the newer code.

Re: Problems with open freespace in linux
i've just installed wine 0.9.47, but still it not works
[email protected]:/media/sda5/FS$ wine fred2_open_3_6_9.exe
err:module:import_dll Library OpenAL32.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\media\\sda5\\FS\\fred2_open_3_6_9.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\media\\sda5\\FS\\fred2_open_3_6_9.exe" failed, status c0000135
if I try to wine FRED2.exe, it's as you said "Fred2 cannot be run from drive root directory!"

I'm not a Linux guru. Hell, I know nothing about Linux. But still I'll bet that someone hasn't installed OpenAL. You'll need that for starters. Go to the OpenAL site and see if you can figure out what to do with the Linux stuff there. Or if you can find it with Synaptic or what was it called again. That might also work.

Re: Problems with open freespace in linux
Just grab the Windows version of OpenAL and install it with Wine.  Should work fine after that.

You have to use the winepath trick that I mentioned in my first post.  Newer code doesn't require that, but most every existing build (like 3.6.9) does.

Re: Problems with open freespace in linux
Hmm.  Try running it with the -no_vsync cmdline option (like "wine `winepath -w fs2_open_3_6_9.exe` -no_vsync") and see if that fixes it.

 
Re: Problems with open freespace in linux
I'm having the same problem, but when i try to do what taylor said nothing happens, it still says "cannot run from drive root"
