Cannot install on Linux Mint 19/19.2

Post by Troubled » 01 Jan 2020, 20:54

Hi.
Tried installing v. 3.3.0 on three computers.
1: Mint 19
2: Mint 19.2(fresh install)
3: Windows 10

On the windows computer it was not a problem at all.

Tried following the compiling guide, after a lot of trouble, I managed to get it to work in mint 19.
But synaptic and the software manager is gone, due to some "xenial" error...

On mint 19.2 it does not work at all, same "xenial" error.
If i use the software manager, i can install the game and it sort of works.
Cant play multiplayer, since the current version isnt supported.

Is there someone who could give a step by step instruction?

Use

Code: Select all

sudo snap install warzone2100
or describe in more detail at what stage of compilation errors and text errors occur.
You do not need to install sdl from third-party software, the necessary version is already in the distribution

Probably caused by weird instructions for a, not so relevant anymore, problem when SDL 2.0.6 was the latest release (see the mint and ubuntu sections in our linux compile guide). The compile guides need to be cleaned up and updated.

It worked!

For any others struggling:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install warzone2100
Is there a easy way to get the videos?

Download sequences.wz from Sourceforge, and save the file as:

Code: Select all

~/.local/share/warzone2100-3.3.0/sequences.wz

"The compile guides need to be cleaned up and updated." probably a little bit, maybe rename it as install guide with a separate compile section following?

Installs of wz across any distro should be recommend through the built in package manager to keep it simple as possible for general users.
