Demo does not start on openSUSE 12.2 64-bit (KDE)
After installation and trying to start the game, nothing happened at all.

I modified to remove the references to Ubuntu commands after reading a comment by Olorin at

Then I got errors about missing files, and installed the packages libXaw7-32bit and Mesa-libGLU1-32bit.

After that the screen blinks very quickly, and I'm back at the desktop.

Any ideas?

The log can be seen here:

"nothing happened at all."

Unsure if its the exact same thing but...

Clicked play, had a dialog box come up about some package, clicked OK (or whatever it was) and nothing...

Clicked play again which said it was already running...

Eventually, went to start system monitor to end the process, and just as I started searching for it in Unity lens (Ubuntu) the game demo started.

Whatever is happening, it doesn't appear to be working smoothly but is working.

Though, if there is another or different issue with Opensus I don't know.

I can say that it definitely works OK on openSUSE 12.2 64 bit

I had to modify and remove the Ubuntu app installation crap (seriously? using the start script to try and install things, that's just stupid)

I also had to disable the In-Game Steam Community.

With those two changes, the game launches fine from within Steam.

One thing I did find was that that if you launch the game from CLI outside of Steam, you won't have persistent savegames (they are lost once you exit the game).

Thanks! I found the setting in Steam to disable In-Game Steam Community, and then the game launched.

It does crash if I try to enter the settings in the game though, but it seems like many has that issue, even in Ubuntu.

@Morpa, did you try disable In-Game Steam? Your issue very similar which I mentioned on:
bingus 2012年12月27日下午4:23 
Disabling the in game Community worked to launch it for me (latest Kubuntu) but yeah, the Settings and Save/Load options still cause it to crash.

I wonder what the difference is here? I'm on openSUSE 12.2 64 bit. I ripped out the Ubuntu specific apt-get crap from the start script, disabled the in-game community and it works 100%. I can go into settings and change anything, save games, load games, sync with the Steam Cloud etc. In other words the game works 100% (minus the de-Ubuntu-ing of the start script)

Could it be related to graphics hardware? I have a ATI Radeon HD 5670.
What do you have smaug42?
smaug42 2012年12月30日下午3:55 
I have nvidia. I've had ATI and it's nothing but trouble.
