Not starting on linux mint 14: SDL and SDL_mixer installed
« on: February 16, 2013, 05:05:45 AM »
As the title says, i've the needed items to play it, and it worked fine when i was playing under mint linux 13, so why not 14?... Confused as ever on it, i've tried opening it termnial but all i get is this

Code: [Select]

peter@peter-K84L ~ $ cd /home/peter/Documents/linuxgames/asciisec
peter@peter-K84L ~/Documents/linuxgames/asciisec $ asciisec
asciisec: command not found
peter@peter-K84L ~/Documents/linuxgames/asciisec $



it's in there, i know it is, and i've tried everything i can think of an sudo many times... help in this would be greatly appreciated.

I have SLD mixer and SDL 1.2 both installed they are the most recent as i could get.

Code: [Select]
eter@peter-K84L ~/Documents/linuxgames/asciisec $ sudo ./asciisec
[sudo] password for peter:
./asciisec: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Seems there's an issue with the Libsm, i've reinstalled, removed then installed, them over about 3 times... So i'm lost here as of what to do.

Well, from you first post, you should start it with
Code: [Select]
./asciisec
if you're standing in the folder where the executable is in, since your $PATH variable obviously isn't including $HOME/Documents/linuxgames. And I assume "asciisec" is marked as an executable.

Regarding your second post: I don't see why you use sudo?
