You can modify /usr/bin/knossos & remove "override_dh_link" from the file and (for me at least) it'll work as expected.

Or if you don't want to modify the file, just run this from a terminal:
Code: [Select]
python3 /usr/share/knossos/knossos/__main__.py

You are a genius, thanks   ;) :yes:. Now knossos starts with no problem, and without the annoying  warning too!

Hey... is www.knossos.com available?  It seems like it to me, but I'm not sure.  Could this be a thing, or is it too expensive?  How much would it cost to register?

Knossos.com has been registered with GoDaddy since 2001. Apparently, they're auctioning it off with a minimum bid of over $6000... XD

I'd rather wait for the auction to finish (on 2019-01-19) and see what happens.
Anyway, we already have https://fsnebula.org/knossos so IMO we're fine.

Where does Knossos place screenshots? Can't find them anywhere.

You're a wrongularity from which no right can escape!

Perhaps it would be prudent to point out that Knossos has nothing to do with screenshots, they are generated by FSO and put where it puts all of its data files which hasn't changed whether installed with Knossos or any other method.

It's also worth pointing out that you can click the small picture icon in Knossos (below the settings button) to open your screenshot folder. Much easier than manually opening the folder.

I see.  Well, I put in a few shortcuts, https://is.gd/knossos and https://is.gd/Knossos   (Why?  Well, try Googling 'Knossos' to find the site if you forget it's under fsnebula like I do on a regular basis... :ick: )

I doubt we can get on the first page of search results for "Knossos" since there's way too much stuff with the same name. However, if you search for "Knossos FS2", most results on the first page are for Knossos.

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.13.3 (combined launcher/installer)
Actually, the chance that somebody blindly enters "Knossos" on Google and hopes to find HLP instead of an antique palace without knowing what FS2 is is sadly rather small. :(

Yup

This is what I end up doing after the first results list hits.  (I mean, who else would use that word?? lol... guess it means something in ancient Greek mythology or something)

I decided to try out Knossos.


I see where I can download campaigns, but how do I go about downloading builds (stable builds and nightlies)?

Currently, builds are displayed along with the rest of the mods, so look for FSO.  This should change in the future with tags.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.13.3 (combined launcher/installer)
I have some more simple questions if that's okay.  For now:

I want to make sure I installed things in the correct places:
Is it okay that the "Knossos" folder got installed in the "Program Files (x86)" folder?

Also, is it okay that I put the game folder for Knossos ("FreespaceOpen") in the same folder ("Games") as my current Freespace 2 folder ("Freespace2")?  I mean, I didn't put FreespaceOpen into Freespace2, but rather those two folders (FreespaceOpen and Freespace2) are both in C:\Games

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.13.3 (combined launcher/installer)
Hello,

I´m new to Knossos and want to know, if I can use WXLauncher and Knossos (for mods which are only available there) parallely?

Can I use any harddrive to install it or do I have to use C: ?

You can use wxLauncher and Knossos at the same time. However they use different folder structures so you'll have to use two different game folders.

You can install Knossos on any hard drive you want. However, the directory you select in the installer will only contain Knossos. The actual game files (mods, FSO, etc.) will be stored in a separate directory which you can select after starting Knossos for the first time (though you can change it afterwards in the settings). Make sure to select a directory outside of C:\Program Files for that.

What about the mod development folders created by Knossos? Will they be transferred to another machine that contains the Knossos launcher?

Mods in dev mode and normal mode work the same. You have to install them on the machine before you can use them. Obviously, you can only install uploaded mods.

That said, I'm not sure what that has to do with the previous question.
