Trouble installing on Linux Mint

Postby DannPM » Sat Jan 12, 2013 9:56 pm

Looks like it successfully installing binaries, but then the command in the install 'vssetup' isn't found and neither is 'vegastrike', afterwards. Any ideas on what I'm doing incorrectly? I'm very excited to play this game but can't get it to work :(

Code: Select all
~@comp ~/Downloads/vegastrike5 $ bash vsinstall.sh
                     ==== VEGA STRIKE 0.5.0 ====


I am installing 32-bit binaries.

This script needs your password to link the following commands
 into '/usr/bin': vegastrike vegaserver vssetup mesher

Do you wish to grant administrator access to install these binaries?
Type yes or no: yes
Trying to using sudo...
[sudo] password for ~:
Installation successful!

Do you want to run 'vssetup'? [yes]/no? yes
vsinstall.sh: line 108: vssetup: command not found
Settings should now be configured.

Type 'vegastrike' at a terminal to play VS!  Press any key to exit.
~@comp ~/Downloads/vegastrike5 $ vegastrike
vegastrike: command not found

I don't think vsinstall.sh is being maintained. In fact I've been thinking about removing it.

Mint is pretty much debian/ubuntu underneath, so I bet you could use debian/ubuntu repositories.

Thanks Klauss. Any idea on their path to the repo? I got 0ad from the repo with the code below (minus the X unknown and the vegastrike name). I'm a Linux noob.

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository X
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vegastrike

Klauss, thanks for pointing me in the correct direction! Getdeb is DOWN! Had to use a mirror and found Vegastrike. Thanks again!

(For users who are looking how to install the mirror, good link here http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/getdeb-p ... -what.html)

You add the right repo URL to the repository manager and that should be it.
