Linux demo crashes
Hi all, I just installed the UoC demo for Linux (Ubuntu 12.04, 32 bits) but I am getting random crashes playing the introductory scenario.

This is what the log file reports each time a new crash happens:

Traceback (most recent call last):

cairo.Error: invalid value (typically too big) for the size of the input (surface, pattern, etc.)

Is there any workaround?
Needless to say, it's difficult to evaluate this game without being able to play a full mission...

I have the same problem :(

The demo will crash on me too. Finished the tutorial twice and both times it drops me into the store page (?) for the game just as it's finished . 2nd turn on the scenario same thing. Some "buy now" thing gone wrong? I'm hesitant to buy it since I might not be able to play.
(Mint 14)

The demo is not very stable. But I liked what worked and bought the (linux) version. The full version runs rock-stable for me.

Same here. Playing the introductory scenario and it seems to crash every time on second turn.

Ubuntu 12.04 64bit with Unity. Same problem!

Ubuntu 12.04 32bit with gnome and without unity.Same problem!

Same here. Demo crashes randomly (Fedora 18 x86_64).

Somehow the game seems to have some problem with the counting (of losses) within a unit... it now happened several times within the demo, that "my" attacks score more kills than points/dots remain within the attacked unit.
And it seems, that the next time this (below-zero) unit interacts, the game crashes.

At the moment the game is unplayable for me (64bit), so no buy.

PS: It really looks lovely (and I love the relaxed music), but if I can not play, I do not buy.

No idea why but the demo crashed hard for me too. It ran fine under WINE. What makes it curious is that the full version has been absolutely rock solid for me in native Linux. So check the demo out in WINE, and if you like it, buy the full game with no worries

same here with the demo (Xubuntu 64bit).
I hope the full version will be stable ..

Okay, more details about that problem: it looks like whenever a unit became totally suppressed, the game crashed the next time that unit was about to get into action.

Since UnityOfCommand is now on sale, I just bought it, and the full version does not show that bug anymore. Yeah!

PS: Up till now it looks like the full version offers no additional depth, the missions are "just" running on a (slightly) larger scale and of course, there are way more scenarios ....

Please try the demo in Wine first. I've tested the 1.02 demo and full 1.04a game in both Ubuntu and Fedora in in both cases the demo fails with this error and the full game is absolutely fine. Seems that it is just an errant error that crept into the Linux version of the demo (Sorry!).

I have the same problem. The game looks promising if it weren't for that bug which hurts my decision to buy it.

We have pushed a fix for both the font display issue (v1.04b) and the Linux demo crash (v1.02bDEMO). Thanks for your patience! If anyone still has problems with the Linux builds, please tell us.
