If I do so, in the console I get the message:

Code: Select all

2010-06-15 06:57:22.148 oolite[2066] File NSUserDefaults.m: 626. In [NSUserDefaults +standardUserDefaults] Improper installation: No language locale found
The window appears bigger but nothing else happens. I can resize the window, move it around, but I can't close it.

Cheers, Thomas[/code]

Running Oolite, first displays the splash screen.
This screen (depending on the graphix card) does not always show right.
Anyhow, wait a bit before the actual Oolite game screen appears.

The message displayed in the console is just a GNUstep warning that does not do any harm.

Could you post the contents of your
~/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults
file?

This file doesn't exist. Inside ~/GNUstep there is only a library - directory.
Even with dir + grep I didn't find it.

I've waited for minutes without that anything happens in the game-window.

With regards, Thomas

I will check on VBox Kubuntu10.04 this night.

Do you have a secondary monitor connected or
is it just the laptop's screen being in use?

No, just using the LCD. The Graphicsdriver is from nvidia. Thanks for your help.

@Samoth

Since Kubuntu does not come with 32-bit compatibility libraries installed,
and you are trying the nightly, which is 32-bit, I suppose you have "ia32-libs" installed already on your own, right?

Please, do the following from a terminal:

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get install padevchooser
This will update your system to support PulseAudio; which is one more feature that Kubuntu does not provide by default.

Then give oolite-trunk one more go. By the way... why don't you use the 64bit 1.74-test release?

Note:
If you do not have "apt-get" (not much probable), then use "adept" or "synaptic" package manager to get "padevchooser".
If you do not have "adept" or "synaptic" (Kubuntu doesn't have any of these installed by default), then use "Applications/System/Software Management" to get one of them.

thx - now it works !

well of course I've tried the 64 bit test release first - but it doesn't start as the 32-bit test as the 32-bit nightly build. Seems that it depends on the pulse-audio-libraries.

Good news Samoth! 8)

Just for your info, in order to run the nightly (only for testing purposes) on 64-bit Ubuntu,
the "ia32-libs" compatibility libraries are needed.

This has helped people in the past..

Also, can you resize the window?
O ok, in that case ill stick with 1.73 so no thanks, i have build from source before. what i have learned its not a good idea. this seems to be still in the beginning stages so ill just wait.

I've installed them.

All in all the game runs now - but installing the pulse-audio-driver isn't a good idea at all, because there seems to be a conflict between the hda nvidia device and the pulse audio.

Is the pulse-audio a must have or is it possible to change it by changing a config-file or by recompiling ?

Ok, I've reinstalled pulseaudio with additional services as shown in the kubuntu-wiki and now everything works fine. So forget my last post. Thx to all.

bye, Thomas
