Thread: Trying to install Doomsday Engine...

  1. #1

    Default Trying to install Doomsday Engine...

    Hi all.

    I wanted to finally give Doomsday a try, and I was up to downloading all dependencies and do the compiling way (from the website).
    But then I found someone finally built it for 12.1:
    software.opensuse.org:
    Which only has the option of one-click install.

    Should I try this one-click or better do the compiling way?
    Thanks for your help.

    do you know and trust user "jengelh"?

    do you know if he compiled and packaged the source, the whole source and
    nothing but the source?

    if you download the source code from a trusted place (?) and compile it
    yourself can you trust that you used the source, the whole source and
    nothing but the source?

    jengelh has been here for some time already :-) -> openSUSE News We can trust him.

    He submitted the game to the games repository. So please install it from there.

    @RedDwarf:
    Yes, you're right! Doomsday is in the Games repository. But then, why doesn't openSUSE Software Search list it in the results? It only lists Jengelh's build, but shouldn't it also list the Games repo build?

    Now it does. I don't know how it does work, perhaps there is some delay.

    OK, installed it from Games repository. Now I have the launcher in the Games section of Applications (I'm on openSUSE 12.1 x86_64 GNOME 3.2), but when clicking it nothing happens, absolutely nothing! The only way I could start Doomsday was opening console and typing "Doomsday engine", but it still starts as a command line program...

    What did I do wrong?

    Did you try to run the command
    Code:
    launch-doomsday
    Output of the command:
    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/doomsday/launch-doomsday", line 6, in <module>
        import snowberry
      File "./snowberry.py", line 25, in <module>
        import language, ui, plugins, sb.profdb
      File "./ui.py", line 37, in <module>
        import sys, os, wx, string
    ImportError: No module named wx
    Means something?

    You do not have the python wxwidget bindings installed.
    Code:
    su -
    zypper install python-wxWidgets
    and try to start it again.

    Thanks, that was the issue.

    Now another one appeared: there's no music while playing. After a search I found Doomsday seemingly relies on a sound driver called FMOD, or something, but since it's closed source is not included in openSUSE and it goes back to SDL Mixer. But anyway it tries to play music using a thing called Timidity, but I guess it's not installed.

    What about all of this?
