[Linux|HumbleBundle] Does not install anything
I got dungeon defenders in the Huble Bundle, but when i try to install it, it does not download anything (Humble-Bundle says it should be 5 GB) and i can't launch it because there is no executable
Is that a common bug, or only related to me?

It happens to me too.

Already known issue. This game was in an earlier bundle too and is still noch available...

Same thing. Some other steam linux games had similar problem.

Interesting in it, 'cause it was a most-interesting game in bundle as for me.
There are SteamPlay, but no Linux In description on Steam game page.
Second, I tried it from client - there are Dungeon Defenders in Linux games hub, but within installation it only creates shortcut.
Double-click on shortcut "Failed to start game (missing exec)."
May be it can be installed via Mojo Setup, but it looks hard to me (I don't even know how-to install Mojo Setup... there are no deb on theirs page, only source code).

Awaiting for updating, which allows correctly installation under Linux.

guys the problem is probably realated to your computer because i also bought the humble bundle and i can use the game. Try to delete your steam files. It worked for me one time when i couldnt open a game that before i could and doing that worked. (delete all steam files)

I'm experiencing the same issue. I've tried deleting local data, and making sure that the DD dir in ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common is deleted, then reinstalling - doesn't help.

Anyone have any other ideas?

I tried "verifying" the install, which passes, but the ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Dungeon Defenders/ directory is empty.

This is common with Linux Steam, games that are newly released or under development with Steam integration will show up in your list but have nothing to download. On the Beta tab of these including this game are often Linux closed betas (available with a password only known to some).

It's happened before with several games and sadly will probably continue to happen -- I really wish they would just leave it off until it's publically available because it is confusing.

As for the time being, you can just download the .mojo.run file and extract it (it's a bzip2-compressed tar archive) to someplace like /opt/DungeonDefenders, and then symlink the binary:

ln -s /opt/DungeonDefenders/DungeonDefenders /usr/bin/dungeon-defender

In case it doesn't run, check to see if libstdc++5 is installed (it might be named differently in your distro's package manager).

Hopefully it'll be available via Steam soon.

You cant play online in Linux yet, but the fact that game appered in list shows that it ll probably come to Linux Steam.

Someone posted here a link, where you could see this game is already in a beta stage for steam linux. :) I don't remember where exactly right now. In a few weeks it will be online for sure.

If it's in the list it will be released for sure.

That's not true! If you own the Humble Bundle you can use that version to play under Linux quite well. But the Linux version is coming up. How to fix the HiB version to run under Linux and how to fix it I quote a post of the developer from Bugzilla:

Ok, so this is really embarrassing.

The game went out with an accidental last-minute change in an .ini file.

In the directory where you installed the game, edit the file:


Right near the top are two lines like this:


Change them both to be LobbyLevel.udk ... then it will work.

I'm really sorry about that, we were working on the Steam version at the same time, and it still had the Valentine's Day customizations in it, which were taken out for the Humble Bundle. That simple edit will get you going, so no need to redownload something, but I'll also update the Humble Bundle build.

Int the very end you can see he is working on it. But usually he takes his time. ;)

Well, I really like that there exists that way of communicating with the developers, this makes life so much easier. When you look at the big game publishers, which one would offer such kind of support? :)
