Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Hi everybody,

I am new both to the game and also to Ubuntu (linux in general two weeks experience). I've been trying quite hard to get the game running on ubuntu 9.04. I have gone through several ways to get it running.

http://elsoftwarelibre.wordpress.com/2009/08/10/como-instalar-freespace-2-open/

went through the wiki for linux, but it is just too strange.

Read finally the post from Jeff Vader

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=60842.msg1199551#msg1199551.

Installed as it is explained inside.

Extracted the files from fs2_open_3_6_10_INF.tar.bz2 into the freespace2 folder

Set up the yal-0.1.4, bin folder ok, launcher moved to freespace2 folder

As well the mediavps

I am at the latter part of the launcher.

I have selected the fs2_open_3_6_10_INF file as the executable file, features, selected mod.
Apply and then run and nothing happens. I guess some kind of error log file must be built somewhere, but no idea where.

Can someone explain me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Could you tell us where exactly you had problems? Personally, I followed the instructions on the Wiki, and never had a problem getting it to run.

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Basically,
I set up the launcher following the instructions from Jeff Vader's post

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=60842.0

Apply changes in launcher and then click "RUN" and nothing happens.

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
No, I meant, where did you have problems following the instructions on the wiki?
And did you follow the additional instructions for Ubuntu 64 users?

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Frankly speaking I got lost everywhere since I lack the experience in linux in general.
No I did not followed the extra instructions for Ubuntu 64 users, I do not have that in my computer (that I know from my previous winXp times).
The way I am installing and running the yal launcher, does it make any error log where i can track them?

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Linux might surprise you there. Unless you have specifically chosen to install the 32-bit version, it'll install the 64 bit one. Do those steps, then try again.

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
I have tried what you said:
This is what appears, it appears to me that I already had that lib.


Quote
[email protected]:~$ sudo getlibs -l libtheora.so.0
[sudo] password for emilio:
libtheora.so.0: libtheora0

libtheora0 is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  deluge-core python-libtorrent libboost-python1.37.0
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Then launcher, click RUN, but nothing happens, no error messages, plain nothing.

This is what I have done:
Installed game from CDS with wine
Copied to home folder

copied linux executable files from Regular linux in folder (I tried as well with the inferno ones)

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,64520.0.html

Downloaded mediavps, put files in mediavps folder

Downloaded yal launcher, followed instructions, created fs2launcher and moved to freespace2 folder
Open launcher, selected executable: fs2_open_3_6_10, selected mod mediavps, changed features, gameplay and the rest you know.
So far nothing happens when I click run in launcher to start the game
Any suggestions?

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
What happens if you double-click on the fs2_open_3_6_10 executable? Or the debug version?

Nothing at all (on both files). As well with the inferno build.

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Can you check ~/.fs2_open for a log file? To get there, open your home folder, press CTRL-H to show hidden items, and go to that folder.

Re: Please some help: Ubuntu + yal
Yep, that's the error. The game is looking for a config file telling it which resolution to use.
In ~/.fs2_open, create a new text file. Name it fs2_open.ini.
In it, paste the following lines:
Code: [Select]
[Default]
VideocardFs2open=OGL -(1024x768)x32 bit

You can change the 1024x768 bit to whatever resolution you want, of course.

Code: [Select]

It would be a very good idea to download and install the patch for the mediavps as well. Get it here, and put the vp in the same directory as the other mediavps files.

and insert that part?

Thanks again!
