[SOLVED] Cant install on Ubuntu

Postby Ruglud » Sat Dec 29, 2012 12:31 pm

Hi,

FTL runs great on my windows PC, but I cant install it on my Ubuntu machine. I read the readme-file, and try to launch the script file, but nothing happens. There are 2 script files, but I get the same result with both. Hope you can help me. :|

Sorry for my bad english. :oops:

How do you launch the script files? Do you double-click on them, or do you run them from a text window? Can you post a screenshot of what you currently have?

Thank you for trying to help me. :)

Here are two screenshots from my unpacked FTL Folder:

I tryed different ways to launch it. When I double-klick on it, I get a contextmenu where I can choose between "open with terminal", "open" or "abort". No matter, what I choose, nothing happens. :|

Can you try to run it from a terminal that you open up?

- Open a Terminal (if you click on the applications / search icon in the top left you can just type "Terminal" and find it)
- type: cd ~/Desktop/FTL (though it looks like your Desktop is labelled in German (?), so you might want to type that ) and press enter
- type ./FTL and press enter

Then the terminal should give you some output that might hint to why it's not working. Sorry about the troubles!

Thank you for your help.
Yes, Im using a German version of Ubuntu.

I try both, to type "Desktop" and "Arbeitsfläche". Here some screens of the Terminal:

Looks like a missing graphiccard driver?! :o



Edit: Problem solved. I deleated the libstdc++.so.6 in amd64 directory of FTL. :)
Thanks for your help!
