    Gnome Hearts...

    Since im the ultra cool uber geek boyfriend, and put linux on my wonderful girlfriends laptop, she wants to play gnome hearts that comes standard on ubu. I run it from both the desktop, and the gnome menu, and it will open, than close. I tried to run it from the terminal, and got ryanjess@ryanjess-laptop:~$ gnome-hearts

    ** ERROR **: file hearts.c: line 859 (load_card_styles): assertion failed: (directory != NULL)
    aborting...
    Aborted (core dumped)
    ryanjess@ryanjess-laptop:~$


    I'm pretty linux savy, been using ubu since 6.10 came out. but this one definitally becomes me.

    Re: Gnome Hearts...

    Yeah i had the same problem,
    You see, the default cards are in the /usr/share/gnome-common-games directory while gnome-hearts searches in the /usr/share/pixmaps directory.

    A simple symbolic link to the gnome-common-games directory does the trick. To make this, do the following:

    cd /usr/share/pixmaps/
    sudo ln -s ../gnome-games-common/

    Hope this works

    This worked for me as well. I went looking for a fix when editing ~/.gnome-hearts.cfg to look in the correct directory did not work.
