Thread: Supertux doesn't work?

  1. #1

    Default Supertux doesn't work?

    Hi
    I've installed Supertux the game for the kids, but whenever I want to open it I get the following error.

    Code:
    korbes@linux-bbie:~> supertux
    Datadir: /usr/bin/../share/supertux
    Warning: No joysticks are available.
    
    Error: Couldn't load musicfile
    /usr/bin/../share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD
    
    Afgebroken
    korbes@linux-bbie:~>
    Is there a way to solve this problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello korbes,

    Is there a way to solve this problem?
    You can try to run the game with the option --disable-sound.
    It isn't a solution, but the game will run.

    Good luck!

    Hello korbes,

    After some searching I found this on the Supertux Wiki:
    After running the configure script without any options and compiling the source in the supertux-0.1.3.tar file, SuperTux crashes with the error 'Couldn't load musicfile', and reports the filename with a complete absolute path (which is correct -- SALCON.mod). Bug produced with a Slackware 9.1 system. -> Your SDL_mixer library is probably compiled without mikmod support or you grabbed 1 of the versions where mikmod support was broken.
    And I found two bug-reports about the same problem. Here and here.
    So you can try to update SDL_Mixer or downgrade it. Could you
    please tell me which version of Supertux and SDL_Mixer you have.

    Good Luck!

    I have SuperTux 0.1.3 version. And I wouldn't know how to check which version of SDL_Mixer I have.
    I'm a newbie in linux.
    So can you please tell me how to check this?
    thanks in advance

    Go to Yast-Software-Software Management

    search for SDL_mixer

    Ok in Yast software management I can see that I have libSDL_mixer-1_2-0 installed.
    Do I have to upgrade this? Or downgrade?

    Hello korbes,

    I would recommend to upgrade SDL_mixer.
    Go to Software Search, enter SDL_mixer and your openSUSE version.
    Look for 1.2.8 or higher. Click on the One-Click Install button.
    Follow the installation instruction. If all goes well SDL_Mixer will be installed.

    Good Luck!

    I have now SDL_mixer-1.2.11-11.1 installed. But supertux gives still the same error.
    Code:
    Couldn't load musicfile:.../usr/share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD

    Hello korbes,

    I'm sorry that didn't work out for you.
    But there's something we haven't tried yet.
    We haven't looked if the file is actually there. Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    file /usr/share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD
    If it returns
    Code:
    /usr/share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD: Fasttracker II module sound data
    The file exists and it's still a SDL_Mixer problem.
    Try to update supertux to version 0.3.x.
    You can install this through the Software Search.

    This release uses openAL instead of SDL_Mixer.

    But if it returns:
    Code:
    /usr/share/supertux/music/SALCON.MODasd: cannot open `/usr/share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD' (No such file or directory)
    The file isn't there. And you need to find the file somewhere and place it in /usr/share/supertux/music/.

    Best of luck!
