Update to the 1.20 Linux version

Hey all, just a quick note to say that the linux version (direct link; download page; just the patch files) has been updated to hopefully be a bit less pernickity about what libraries it wants… do let us know if it’s easier/harder to get it working than before. I also update the download instructions (specifically, wine instructions were telling you to work an old version of mono, and i added the winforms package as this seemed to help one chap get it running on 64 bit).

Massive thanks to everyone who has sent in reports, patches, etc. You’re awesome!

  1. Just tried and got it running on Fedora 11 (32-bit). Figured I’d leave a comment in case anyone else is trying to do the same, since the libraries you’ll need are named a bit differently.

    Instead of libsdl, etc: (you WILL need the devel packages here)
    SDL (1.2.13-9)
    SDL-devel (1.2.13-9)
    SDL-static (1.2.13-9)
    SDL_gfx (2.0.17-2)
    SDL_gfx-devel (2.0.17-2)
    SDL_image (1.2.6-7)
    SDL_image-devel (1.2.6-7)
    SDL_mixer (1.2.8-12)
    SDL_mixer-devel.i586 (1.2.8-12)
    SDL_ttf (2.0.9-5)
    SDL_ttf-devel (2.0.9-5)

    Stuff that will probably be installed by default:
    libgdiplus (2.4-5)
    libpng (2:1.2.37-1)
    libvorbis (1:1.2.0-8)

    From the RPMFusion free repository: (not actually sure if this is necessary, but it was in the readme, so I installed it)
    smpeg (0.4.5-0.3)

    Mono was installed already for me–I believe it’s installed by default, although I could be wrong. If it’s not installed, the packages I have are mono-addins, mono-core, mono-data, mono-data-sqlite, mono-extras, mono-web, and mono-winforms. I don’t know for sure, but I’d guess only mono-core and mono-winforms are actually necessary.
