I downloaded this game, and it simply does nothing when I try to run it. No error, nothing.

I tried to see what was wrong by running it with the command "ldd" and it gave me this:

  • What does sudo apt-get install libx11-6 return? Adding :i386 (sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386) installs the x86 variant. – John Guerreiro Jul 30 '15 at 10:24
  • wayne@wayne-iMac:~$ sudo apt-get install libx11-6 [sudo] password for wayne: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libx11-6 is already the newest version. libx11-6 set to manually installed. The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: gtk3-engines-unico libtimezonemap1 Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 46 not upgraded. – Wayne Kosimoto Jul 30 '15 at 18:59
  • Even after doing sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386 it doesn't work. – Wayne Kosimoto Jul 30 '15 at 22:14
  • And it still shows libX11.so.6 => not found? – John Guerreiro Jul 30 '15 at 22:42
  • These are the only ones that say, not found. libGLU.so.1 => not found, libGL.so.1 => not found, libXext.so.6 => not found, libXcursor.so.1 => not found, libXrandr.so.2 => not found, The rest doesn't fit here. – Wayne Kosimoto Jul 31 '15 at 0:05

You need to install the relevant libraries in 32-bit.

For example, "sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386" should get rid of the "libGLU.so.1 => not found".

With some effort I'm sure you can find the packages for the other libraries.

  • has anything changed? I assume you're running in from the command line - what prints out there? – Timothy Gray Aug 15 '15 at 7:48
  • I posted it above. – Wayne Kosimoto Aug 17 '15 at 0:41
  • Not from ldd, when you actually try to run the game – Timothy Gray Aug 17 '15 at 10:57
