[SOLVED] - Problems installing Warzone 2100 v3.3.0_beta1 in Linux Mint 19 MATE

Post by Doruletz » 04 Jun 2019, 20:10

Using Linux Mint 19 Tara 64-bit
Kernel Linux 4.15.0-50-generic x86_64
DESKTOP: MATE 1.20.1


I installed the latest version, warzone2100-3.3.0_beta1 from the tarball package (warzone2100-3.3.0_beta1.tar.xz), by using the method described here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/798106/ ... der-xenial

First, I installed all required dependencies and other stuff needed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y autoconf automake build-essential libpng-dev libfreetype6-dev libharfbuzz-dev libfontconfig1-dev libgl1-mesa-dev gdb dockbook-xls libxml2-utils xsltproc asciidoc wkhtmlopdf getttext
Followed by...

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install checkinstall qt5-default qtscript5-dev libsdl2-dev libssl-dev libtheora-dev libopenal-dev libopts25-dev libvorbis-dev libglew-dev lib[hysfs-dev libfribidi-dev libqt5script5 libqt5core4 autogen autogen-doc
What I did next was to run this set of commands in a Terminal:

Code: Select all

mkdir ~/Desktop/warzone_build && cd ~/Desktop/warzone_build && \
wget http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/project/warzone2100/releases/\
3.3.0/warzone2100-3.3.0_beta1.tar.xz && \
tar xvf warzone2100-3.3.0_beta1.tar.xz && cd warzone2100 && \
./configure && make -j 4 && \
sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop/warzone_build" \
     --backup=no --deldoc=yes --pkgname warzone2100 \
     --fstrans=no --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default
So, it got installed, and I can play it. But this is where the weird part comes...

MAJOR PROBLEM:

There is no ".warzone2100-3.3" folder in my HOME Directory.
Therefore, I cannot load new maps or mods, I cannot bank on player experience rating, I cannot save games to continue playing at a future time, I cannot load my own music, etc, etc....

Does anyone know a way to compile and/or install that will create the ".warzone2100-3.3" folder in my HOME Directory???????
Please help.

Thanks.

It should be in ~/.local/share by default. See https://github.com/Warzone2100/warzone2 ... r-gnulinux.

Berserk Cyborg, you Sir are a real Life Saver!!!!
Thanks a million, I was just about to wipe it off and revert to the old Warzone 2100 v3.2.1 from the repositories.
Problem solved.
