Maybe someone capable can make a snap app for Knossos if the licenses are not violated?!

Alternative compiling instructions

Tested on a clean Ubuntu 20.04 install
OBS: This doesn't use pipenv because I don't know how to use it.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install build-essential git p7zip-full libopenal-dev ninja-build pipenv pyqt5-dev pyqt5-dev-tools qttools5-dev-tools qt5-default
sudo apt install nodejs npm yarnpkg
sudo apt install python3-semantic-version python3-pyqt5.qtwebengine python3-requests-toolbelt python3-ply
sudo apt install libsdl2-dev

git clone https://github.com/ngld/knossos.git
cd knossos

pip3 install token-bucket
yarnpkg install
python3 configure.py

ninja run


If everything works, you can install knossos using:

Code: [Select]
sudo python3 setup.py install
sudo install -Dm644 ./releng/ubuntu/debian/knossos.desktop /usr/share/applications/knossos.desktop
sudo install -Dm644 ./knossos/data/hlp.png /usr/share/knossos/knossos/data/hlp.png

It gives an error on startup (I don't know why) but you can safely ignore it.

I made this because the instructions of the other users didn't work on my system for some reason.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.13.3 (combined launcher/installer)
Thanks for the instruction.

18.04 users: the packages "pipenv" and "yarnpkg" are not avaiable in 18.04. You might need this one, too, before compiling
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install curl
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pypa/pipenv/master/get-pipenv.py | sudo python3
curl -sS https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list
sudo apt update && sudo apt install yarn
and using

Code: [Select]
yarn install
instead of

Code: [Select]
yarnpkg install

Thanks to the tireless work of chief1983 we now have Mac builds again! There are no other functional changes in this release.

@anagram: did you try it in 20.04? As I am no python/programming expert: How to revert your installation instructions, especially the "sudo install" lines?

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
According to the Readme this should work

Code: [Select]
pipenv run python3 configure.py
Warning: Python 3.6 was not found on your system…
python3 version here is 3.8.2 in 20.04. Ideas?

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Sorry for confusing everyone here. That error comes from the README instructions of 0.14.1 referring to Ubuntu 18.04. Using anagrams instructions works flawlessly. It seems much more stable than using the 0.13.3 from the PPA

@m!m: Would you mind updating the README accordingly for 20.04 users?

To update you can run:
Code: [Select]
git pull
sudo python3 setup.py install

you don't need to uninstall before updating, but if you want to uninstall run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pip uninstall knossos

 I am not a python programmer myself but I am learning. If the community wants I can try to make a ppa/deb to make it easier to install.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Okay, it's happening for real. I have Knossos and, right now, I'm downloading FS2 from GOG. Even though I have my good old, *pat* :v-old: *pat* copy of FreeSpace 2, my computer doesn't support any CDs so I had to buy the game from GOG. No big deal, it's very well deserved.

My previous computer was one of the reasons why I couldn't play FS anymore. It was obsolete, and I never had the actual need to replace it. The circumstances changed a couple of weeks ago so here I am.

Let's see if I can figure out how to do everything by myself. I can't even remember the last time I player FreeSpace, it must have been between 2011 and 2012.  :D

EDIT: Done, but I still have to run it. It's easier than ever before! I'm glad to see that so much progress had been made.  :yes:

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Check
a) all classic campaigns you used to know, and possible upgrades of them
b) all fantastic "new" mods, like Blue Planet, Exile, Just Another Day (all parts), Wings of Dawn, etc
c) the Total Conversions of Galactica, Wing Commander, Babylon 5, and everything else you can find

Same here, my old PC didn't make it anymore, both with the mods, and physically   ;)  Now I have 8 GB RAM and a 2 GB VGA card. Pleasure to Kill now those Vasudans, Shivans, other Ancients, you name them ;7

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Most of the mods and TCs you mentioned were already available back then, but I do in fact notice many upgrades and re-releases of said content. Looking for updates has never been so easy, so my most sincere congratulations go to whoever developed Knossos.

If I want to give Knossos a try do I download "Knossos 0.14.1 .exe" or "update 0.14.1 . exe"?

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Hi, no idea where to put this but I'm having issues with the client not showing any mods and with it not downloading from or opening when I click fso://open/ links on fsnebula.org
I have given the Knossos client firewall permissions and the fsnebula.org all Chrome permissions and checked the box for the web association for the client when installing.
I would really appreciate some help...

Understood, thank you. It appears my problem is fixed now, I reinstalled and deleted all data in Knossos folder in AppData folder.

Well... My problem with the client not loading any content is fixed and I'm currently downloading mods, but the custom URL protocol association is still not setup... This video shows what happens:

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Is there an ETA on the "server side issue" being resolved?  Currently I can only see the mods I've already installed, but I know there are many more that *should* be available.

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
I also want to know when the server side issue on installing mods will be corrected......and, has 0.14.1 been successfully built on Ubuntu 20.04.  Currently I am using 0.13.3 as per page 43 instructions
