    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    I have been playing this faithully in an x386 box.
    My laptop has a better graphics card but is a AMD64 (dual-core)

    ia32libs are installed but when trying to run the script (the nwn script not the install one) it says that it can't open libelf.so (which is not in the /lib32 directory or anywhere under /usr that I could find).

    Would this be because I just copied the existing NWN directory.
    I didn't see anything in the gwos.org site about 64bit that isn't similar to what I did.

    The site just has you unpack archives from the discs, considering I already did that, is anyone else with a 64bit system getting an error about libelf.so ?

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    I found some sites/forums where they were having problems with nwmovies on amd64. So I removed that from the nwn script and now the game runs but there is no sound. And it does not seem to detect my soundcard (NVIDIA HD Audio on-board).

    So I know I have to rebuild the nwmovies.so but why would it not detect my soundcard ?

    Yeh, figured it out.
    Removed ./lib from export line in script (not sure why it was put back in)

    All works on 64bit now and sound devices are detected.
    (Would still need to recompile the nwmovies.so but they neer played in-game anyway so I may not bother.)

    Did you get that while installing, or trying to play? A Linux installation of NWN doesn't even ask for the disk when you start it, unlike the Windows version.

    It means it can't find Data_Shared.zip so my guess would be either the file is corrupt or it isn't where the installer thinks it is... make sure you are writing the correct paths..

    CD to your game dirctory... for me that would be

    Code:
    cd ~/.Games/nwn
    and then..

    Code:
    unzip -o /media/cdrom/Data_Shared.zip
    where '/media/cdrom/' is the path to where ever it is your nwn cd is mounted

    I'm assuming you have been here

    Don't forget linux is case sensitive when it comes to file names and paths.

    Hope that helps, good luck.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Hello there !

    EDIT : I've fixed my problem by installing Wine. Sorry for that !

    I have a fresh install of "Lucid Lynx" (Ubuntu 10.04) and I'm trying to install NWN Diamond Edition.

    I've followed the guide but was not able to find the Msttcorefonts. I assumed it was included by now with "Lucid Lynx".

    I've downloaded the script. Change the Terminal for Bash and executed it. The script load perfectly well in a Terminal. Thoug upon selecting Dimaond, the window disappeared and I can't go further.

    Any idea ?

    Thanks in advance

    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.
    Don't spend your time thinking of the problem. Spend your time thinking of the solution.

    Note: I am going to assume nwn was installed in /opt/nwn, if you installed somewhere else you will just need to modify the paths slightly

    1) Create a file /opt/nwn/startnwn (for example, using gedit), and put the following into it
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    display=:1
    nwn=/opt/nwn/nwn
    user=john
    
    xinit /usr/bin/env DISPLAY=$display /bin/su -c $nwn $user -- $display
    2) Modify the nwn= line to contain the path to the nwn script (the script you normally run)
    3) Modify the user= to contain your login user name
    4) If you don't understand what display is, leave it at :1, otherwise set to whatever you want.

    5) Test the script by running sudo /opt/nwn/startnwn (The startnwn script must be run as root). You can switch back and forth by using Ctl-Alt-F7 and Ctl-Alt-F8

    6) Now you have two options

    6.a) Type the password in every time you run nwn. For this, edit the desktop launcher and/or menu icon to run the command "gksudo /opt/nwn/startnwn" This will prompt for a password, then run the startnwn script

    6.b) In a console, run "sudo visudo" then add a line on the bottom

    Code:
    <username>   ALL = NOPASSWD: /opt/nwn/startnwn
    modifying the <username> and path to startnwn. sudo will now run the startnwn script without a password, so in the desktop launcher and/or menu icon command can be set to "sudo /opt/nwn/startnwn"


    As I mentioned before, you can then switch back and forth using Ctl-Alt-F7 (desktop) and Ctl-Alt-F8 (nwn)
    Hey guys. This is Snipe. I'm new to the forums ^^ hows everyone doing? hope yer all well!!!

    So, regarding the post i am quoting. I have installed NWN Platinum and i am trying a way to minimize the game/ switch to desktop while playing. Compiling libSDL is a bit too diff for me since i've been using Ubuntu for half a year only, so i just saw this post and thought i'd give it a try. But it gives me an error:
