Linux: I don't understand how to install under Ubuntu Dapper

Post by t.z0n3 » 12 Aug 2006, 19:01

I'm a complete Linux Newb. I'm sorry if I'm causing headaches... the feeling is mutual. I was intrigued by this game, and I've been looking for something to replace Guild Wars (I can't get Cedega... T_T) and this looked like a good old 2D adventure to me. But it hates me.

I downloaded the Debian packages from TMW's main website, and then I attempted to install them (like an idiot). It said I needed libguichan, and so I Synaptec'd that, and it was all good. Installed, ready to use, right? Not so. I tried again, and it said that libguichan's dependencies were not satisfied, just as it had before. I am utterly confused by this, and can't find a way to fix it.

And yes, I did use the search button before posting this. :D

guichan - the library that creates more problems than it solves. which version of guichan did you install? the most recent version 0.5.0 doesn't work with tmw yet because they changed a lot of api calls. you need the version 0.4.0. unfortunately this version can no longer be found on the guichan homepage (hell, when they release a new version that isn't backward compatible they should at least offer the old version).

by the way, this topic belongs to the "Unix specific issues" board.

Ah, I didn't realize that Unix was Linux. That's how much of a newb I am. Forgive me. :?

Uhm... I have 0.4.0 installed. The file names in Synaptec are given as:

libguichan0
libguichan0-dev

I installed both of them and all of their dependancies.

Uninstall your outdated tmw deb and use that one:

http://themanaworld.de/tmw_0.0.20.1-1_i386.deb

then "dpkg -i" it

But I'm using Ubuntu. Those were for Windows, weren't they? o.0

it is very unlikely that a .dep file has anything to do with windows.

Alright, I did that, but the wierdest part was that it said it was already installed. I can't actually find it anywhere with a whereis check, or a find check. I reinstalled it, and it still isn't working, because I when I try to start it (via ./tmw in the correct directory) it says this:

./tmw: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried to find this via Synaptec, but it apparenty does not exist. I also cannot apt-get it. What the heck is that thing? Do I need another library supported or something? o.0

That file should be included in the package 'libsdl-mixer1.2', which should be available in Dapper through Synaptic.

And "sudo apt-get remove tmw" before...

It seems to have worked! I'm sorry I caused you guys to post here.

If the old adage that 'Online games are only as good as those that maintain them' is true, then this game should be wonderful. :wink:

about guichan: they now got a link on their homepage where one can find older versions and the latest developer version of tmw has been ported to guichan 0.5.
