game not showing up on mint main menu (18.3)

#1 Post by godel » Mon May 07, 2018 6:11 pm

I have ubuntu mint 18.3.
I have followed some compile instructions that ended with:

apt-get build-dep freeorion
cd freeorion-*
debuild -us -uc
You can tweak the variables in debian/rules and modify e.g. REV to change the revision of FreeOrion. Then run
debian/rules get-orig-source
to download a Debian compliant source tarball. You will have to install subversion.
http://debian-handbook.info/browse/stab ... aging.html

I can not find it on the Menu, nor on the menu search function.


As a second problem, I had 4.3 on my laptop, and tried to do something to get 4.7 there, and 4.3 disappeared from the menu. This might be similar as I have a Mint disto on that laptop.

I am not a sophisticated Linux user. I am doing copy/paste with the instructions, and it seemed that they worked or completed.

OK, maybe not, as this was a part of that:

Re: game not showing up on mint main menu (18.3)

Our regular compile process does not automatically add a menu entry for the game, since that's rather specific to each distribution.

You can simply open up a terminal to the location where you have built freeorion and then run it via

Code: Select all

./freeorion
Just running it from the terminal has the testing benefit of preserving various error messages that in some cases might get written to console but not be logged, especially in the case of crashes.

Or you can manually add it to your menu system, it should be fairly simple to do so.
If I provided any code, scripts or other content here, it's released under GPL 2.0 and CC-BY-SA 3.0

Thanks, it needed an install step.
All is well now.
