Dwarf Fortress & Linux - Unable to run df
« on: December 12, 2010, 03:31:18 pm »

Hi,

I'm trying to get the native linux version of Dwarf Fortress (SDL v0.31.18) running, but I'm having some trouble.
I run 'df' and nothing seems to happen at all - running in terminal produces similar results. running the windows version through WINE works fine, but I would like to try and get the native version working.

I'm currently on Ubuntu 10.10, any help with this would is greatly appreciated.

What is your data/init/init.txt like? I had some issues with PRINT_MODE recently. VBO flickered, FRAME_BUFFER did not display anything even though DF started. PARTIAL:0 seems to work for me, though I am unsure of my fps.

Open a terminal and navigate to the place you put Dwarf Fortress, run ./df and post the output.
