can't save as normal user

Post by widgeteye » 16 Aug 2006, 15:49

In linux everything works great except I can't save a game while playing as a normal user.
If I play as root I can. Here's the error:

ErrorBox: Couldn't open file /home/Larry/.warzone2100/savegame/game.gam

I made sure the above directories and file were world writable.

I created everything on the line but keep getting the same error.
I even chenged the owner of the warzone executable to root and made it su root
with "chmod 4777 warzone". I still can't save games as a normal user.

What's up?

Thanks

can you 'touch'(create) files in the dir /home/Larry/.warzone2100/savegame/ ?
have you tried as root chmod a+rw * -R in .warzone2100 ?


Just ideas, i am no expert

Try running warzone with the "--debug all" command line parameter, and see what it says. Post the output here if you can't figure it out.

I did that, nothing happens. It doesn't show anything any different on the command line when the program is running.

Output goes to stdout.txt and stderr.txt when you use 2.0.4
