Ubuntu - installing

Post by feline monstrosity » 26 May 2009, 22:48

I've just installed Ubuntu on my computer and I'm totally new to Linux so could someone please give a quick guide on how to install the latest version of TMW? I've added it on the Add/Remove programs utility but it's version 0.0.28.1 and I can't find any option to update. Do I have to do it manually?
Help would be much appreciated. :)

If you are only after 0.0.29:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/tmw


If you are looking at testing the latest development version, you can clone it from git:

Code: Select all

git clone git://gitorious.org/tmw/mainline.git tmw
cd tmw
autoreconf -i
./configure
make
sudo make install

Thanks, it's 0.0.29 I'm after. I've found that page before but from there I am still unsure as to how to install it. I presume I have to do it manually and I've only ever installed programs with the Add/Remove programs utility before. Could you please tell me how to install?

You need both tmw-data and tmw (for your architecture). Synaptic should have a way of installing from deb files.

Thanks. Just one more thing: how do I check my architecture? (I think I know what it is, but just to be sure). :D

EDIT: I've figured out my architecture but I have no idea how to install with Synaptic. :? I can't figure out how to do it. I've had a look through the list of files you're given when you first open Synaptic and it says that 0.0.28.1 is the latest version of tmw. I can't find any way to open deb files with Synaptic. Is this the wrong place to ask for help?

After you download the .deb files, you simply double-click on them and installation will commence - however, it's likely you will have dependency errors and have to download other packages manually from the Karmic repositories.

So either you can try to install it natively (dealing with dependency errors), or you can install it through WINE.
In which case you install WINE, and then download the windows version of TMW, and install it through WINE and run it through WINE.

I did indeed have dependency errors. I might try and install it manually and if that doesn't work I'll just run the Windows version through Wine like you said. Thanks!

It appears the dependency differences from Jaunty to Karmic are libgnutls26, libgssapi-krb5-2, libphysfs1, libstdc++6.

I don't know if these depends have depends as well or not, I simply looked at the minimum version required and saw which ones were updated from Jaunty to Karmic.

Well, I managed to deal with all the dependency errors (there were a lot of them!) and successfully installed version 0.0.29 on my Ubuntu. Thanks for all your help guys!

I'd like to compile tmw 0.29 from source code, i am running with ubuntu jaunty (i think...the latest), I look for the dependencies, i thought all was ok, but...no.

A lot of errors appears when I tape ./configure.

The end of the log

So, please, what can I do? Something missing???

this is french, but it says that he can't create the repository, not alloyed, then it leaves the repository.

Thanks for have a look and an idea for me

I think you have to either switch user to root or type sudo make install

the message is "Nothing to do for "all" and then leave the repository...

I try with this link : http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/ ... ompilation

but there is an error for generate configure: autoreconf -i doesn't work. It says that this is not installed.

well...What can I do for compiling mana world???!!! :mrgreen:


later...
I added the programs missing : autoconf, libtool and cvs. and It works.

Good. :)

later...
Just I lost the keyboard control and the windows seems to be in 4:3, and very little scren
well it doesn't work well... Wait for a tip...I am back with microsoft :cry:
