    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Goto Synaptic Package Manager and search for ttf-mscorefonts-installer. This should take care of it once loaded. Also get ttf-liberation for Times, Ariel and Courier.

    My guess is that you did not edit the edid.bin file correctly. In a HEX editor you must change the block containing C9 to 00 and the block containing 31 to 41. This changes the horizontal display...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shell permissions

    Thanks for the interest and offers of help. Updating to Ubuntu 9.04 solved the problem. On balance 9.04 appears to be a much better build.

    In my post just previous to this one I let the script make the nwn folder. I had the same issue as you did with permission issues. My roundabout solution got me through it and I'm up and running.
