    Danger From the Deep -- Permissions?

    I've managed to get it installed ok but, when I go to run it, I get nothing.

    Starting it from the terminal produces:

    Caught exception: DftD error: Can't open directory /usr/share/games/dangerdeep/objects/airplanes/
    Stack trace: (5 frames)
    0x8070202 in dangerdeep at ??:0
    0x806d431 in dangerdeep at ??:0
    0x806d4f1 in dangerdeep at ??:0
    0xb7a5b040 in __libc_start_main at ??:0
    0x804e6a1 in dangerdeep at ??:0

    I'm thinking this may be a permissions problem but, I can't figure how to get around it.

    Can anyone give me some insight to this?
    Before taking down a fence, it may be a good idea to find out why it was put up.

    Re: Danger From the Deep -- Permissions?

    I get this message when I try to run it:
    Code:
    dangerdeep: error while loading shared libraries: libfftw3f.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    I have no idea what the libfftw3f.so.3 library is. Which package did you use to install it?

    EDIT - nvm, I figured it out, it needed the fftw3 package from the repositories

    I don't have the same problem as you however, the game runs fine. I'll ask again, which package did you use to install it? I used the .bin file from the site.

    There are three or four different Linux packages on the site, which one did you use?

    I couldn't seem to get the .bin to run so:

    dangerdeep_0.3.0.1_i386.deb is the one I used.

    That might be the problem, that is the unstable, unmaintained version of the game.

    In order to get the .bin to run, you first need to make it executable. I just do that by right-clicking on the file, select permisions, go to the permissions tab and check the box that says "Allow executing this file as a program". Then its just a simple matter of running it like this:
    Code:
    sudo ./dangerdeep-0.3.0-linux-installer.bin
    After that, I just had to install the Fast Fourier Transform library and the game runs fine.

    Nope. That didn't work. I copied it to my home directory and tried it from there. Nada.

    ----------- GOT IT! Forgot to change permissions on the file.

    Thanks for your help.

    From the Ubuntu repositories, just search Synaptic for it, you'll find it.
