Welcome aboard, Reform. I'm a Windows man, so cannot help - hopefully, a Penguinista will be along shortly though.

Hi reform70, and welcome. It's been a while since I installed, so fingers crossed...
Extract the tgz file, and you will get a file called oolite-<number>.linux-x86.run. Double click it and you will get a prompt to 'run in terminal', 'display', 'cancel' or 'run'.
Hit 'run' and a terminal will open and the install will start. You will be prompted as to whether you want to run 'system wide' or in your home directory. Choose which you prefer - there is not much difference - I use 'home directory' FWIW. It should all happen automatically from there if I remember rightly.

Welcome reform70!

If you know file managers like MC or Krusader then press enter on the tgz and copy out the single .run file.

Else do this in a command line in the directory where your tgz are:

Code: Select all

tar xzf *tgz
Then run (press enter on) the .run file, choose if you want to install system wide or into your home directory. I use the second due to I like to modify it.

What they said.

If you feel like braving the terminal, here's a complete how-to:

Code: Select all

$ cd Downloads/
$ tar zxvf oolite-1.80.linux-x86_64.tgz
$ ./oolite-1.80.linux-x86_64.run
That's assuming your downloads go into your Home/Downloads folder, and that you're using the 64-bit version. For the 32-bit, remove the _64 part.

I'm having problems with the script. When I run it, it gives me a ./setup permission denied message. Please advise.

Maybe your partition has a "noexec" flag? (type mount and find noexec)
An "user" parameter in /etc/fstab can award it.

1. Simply remove the "user" word: secure but you must be root from now to mount this partition.
2. Less secure if you use this: user,exec

I'm sorry, you're gonna have to be a lot more specific.

Ok, then for sure please answer the following questions:
Are you see the noexec flag in the output of a mount command?
Are you found the "user" word in your fstab?
Can you edit the /etc/fstab file?

For example, if you see a line like this:
/dev/sda6 /something ext4 user,defaults 0 2
then change to either:
/dev/sda6 /something ext4 defaults 0 2
or:
/dev/sda6 /something ext4 user,exec,defaults 0 2

Ah, there is not a noexec flag from mount. When I ran the command earlier, I must not have looked closely as the noexec was on a partition not beginning with /dev.

Looking into the .run script I think your "./setup: Permission denied" problem is based on that the execution in your /tmp directory is not allowed. You can go around this if you specify another temporary directory for extracting like this:

./oolite-1.80.linux-x86.run --target ~/a_not_yet_existing_directory
