    Eschalon book I Won't run

    Hello all,
    I am not sure if this is the right place but it seems like it.
    I am trying to play the game "Eschalon book I" (As the title suggested . It has a linux native client but for some reason the game won't run. According to the terminal, when I am trying to run the game it says that the shared file or folder libfreetype.so.6 is missing. I check the /usr/lib directory and I didn't find anything like that file there.

    I was wondering what is that file, where can I get it? I tried to Google it but didn't find anything conclusive. I would appreciate any help. I am new you linux and I am using the latest Lubuntu (due to it's low system demands)

    Thanks in advance.

    Install libfreetype6 should do the trick.

    Ok.. I am getting the following error:

    install: missing destination file operand after `libfree.so.6'
    Try `install --help' for more information.

    does the same with the libfreetype6

    What now?

    I also used the package downloader to download the libfreetype 6 but still doesn't help. Does anybody know where the package downloader download the file? maybe I need to move them manually to /usr/lib folder?

    please Help

    Are you running 64-bit version of Ubuntu?

    Re: Eschalon book I Won't run

    Yes. Now I am facing a new problem, I have found the "Symbolic link" of the file and copied it to my usr/lib library. But I am still getting the same error "no such directory" I am really lost here lol

    Anyways, I also found the same symbolic file in the folder x86_64-linux-gnu and copied it to my usr/lib folder but still getting the same error.

    Please help

    Edit: Ok new error. I have found the file that the symbolic link leads to and copied it too to /usr/lib folder. Not when I try to run the game I get the following error:
    error while loading shared libraries: libfreetype.so.6: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
    I assume the game requires 32bit version of these files but where do I find them? and how do I use them?

    You can't use a 64-bit lib for a 32-bit app. delete the symblink.

    You need to install 32-bit libs to the system, make sure you deleted thte symblink first, then;

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

    Do I delete it from the /lib folder or from the x86_64-linux-gnu? or both?
    also delete the file the symblink points to?

    Re: Eschalon book I Won't run

    Delete the symblink you made and the libs you copied to the different places.
    But do not delete original files/symblinks etc.

    Seems it needs 3D rendering. Which video card do you have (sounds like intel?)?
