    Question Danger of the deep (game) install

    I downloaded dangerdeep from: http://dangerdeep.sourceforge.net/

    I used sudo now the problem is I am a beginner I have been able to download
    ubuntu 11.04 32bit and now am using it. better than windows.

    Problem: when I type in terminal dangerdeep results: dangerdeep: command not found
    can someone tell me how to remove all the files in terminal (dangerdeep) so I can start
    over. I tried to install again but it says its locked or something and not able to install.

    I have the dangerdeep on the desktop and don't know how to run it either.
    can someone give me step by step instructions

    Thanks for any help

    Hi auspot I downloaded this too and am gonna help ya out. So typically when you download, chances are its gonna start in your "Downloads" folder.
    Type:
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    This should show you all your downloads. Next, find the name of the ".bin" linux download. (dangerdeep-0.3.0-linux-installer.bin)
    Type:
    Code:
    chmod +x  dangerdeep*
    The * means it executes everything with dangerdeep, but since its the only one it will only execute that one. The chmod +x made the .bin an executable, so after making it executable, type:
    Code:
    sudo ./danger*
    Follow the on screen instructions, and thats how you install it. (:

    Ok I found out the problem why It wont run. There are 2 packages you have to install.
    -libSDL_mixer-1.2
    -libSDL_net-1.2
    In the Ubuntu software center type in libsdl_mixer and install it, but make sure it is not the "dev." Same goes for libsdl_net. Also, when running the dangerdeep executable, make sure you type "sudo" first or it wont work.

    I hope this helps!

    There are only 10 kinds of people in this world: those who know binary and those who don’t.

    These commands are case sensitive.
    Code:
    cd downloads
    may not work, but
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    will.

    cd Downloads did not work either:

    bill@bill-ET1831:~$ cd Downloads
    bash: cd: Downloads: No such file or directory

    next?

    Try
    Code:
     cd ~/Downloads
    If this doesn't work....What language is set in your system? If it's not english, instead of "Downloads" type the name of that folder in your language. You can see what it's called by opening your home folder:
    Code:
    cd ~
    ls
    -command line way

    "cd ~" opens the home folder
    "ls" lists directory contents

    or just by opening your file manager and seeing the folders on the left side -gui way.

    Just create the folder Downloads if it doesn't exist.
