Thread: How can I install Linux Tycoon?

  1. #1

    Default How can I install Linux Tycoon?

    Hi guys, I hope you are having a nice day. I have this problem installing Bryan Lunduke's Linux Tycoon. I have downloaded the tarball and untarred it, but I cannot make the executable, well, execute itself. I have tried with ./configure, ./LinuxTycoon (which required me to install a GTK library, but even after installing nothing works)... all to no avail.

    So please Geekos, I would be very grateful if you could help this n00b.

    The page states that the source is available under the GPL, but I don't see a download anywhere so I suppose you didn't download it either, right?
    I guess you have just the binary.

    ./LinuxTycoon (which required me to install a GTK library, but even after installing nothing works)... all to no avail.
    And what message do you get when you run it in a terminal window?

    As this looks quite old and there is only a general Linux download, I suppose this is a 32bit application.
    So most likely you miss some 32bit library.
    Since you mentioned "which required me to install a GTK library", this might be libgtk-2_0-0-32bit, but maybe it is still using gtk1 even?

    Well, post the message, this should tell without having to guess.

    Here you are:

    Code:
    ./LinuxTycoon: error while loading shared libraries: libgthread-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    After installing it using zypper I tried again ./LinuxTycoon and this was the result:

    Code:
    (LinuxTycoon:17767): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",
    
    (LinuxTycoon:17767): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",
    
    (LinuxTycoon:17767): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_hash_table_insert_internal: assertion 'hash_table != NULL' failed

    Well, libgthread-2.0.so.0 is part of the package...
    Hm...
    ...
    Tada: libgthread-2_0-0 of course!

    You might have to install the 32bit version though as mentioned earlier (libgthread-2_0-0-32bit). I doubt that libgthread-2_0-0 is not installed on your system, as it is quite vital.

    Btw, this has _nothing_ to do with Gtk really (although it is also provided by the Gtk team).
    From "rpm -qi libgthread-2_0-0":
    Code:
    Summary     : General-Purpose Utility Library -- Library for Threads
    
    Description :
    GLib is a general-purpose utility library, which provides many useful
    data types, macros, type conversions, string utilities, file utilities,
    a main loop abstraction, and so on.
    
    
    The libgthread library provides a portable way to write multi-threaded
    software.

    This means that you don't have "gtk2-engine-oxygen-32bit" installed I suppose.
    Either install it or configure a different Gtk2 theme. (I guess it uses Gtk2)

    But I'm not sure whether the segmentation fault is caused by this.

    This is what I got:

    Code:
    ~/Downloads/LinuxTycoon$ sudo zypper install oxygen-gtk
    root's password:
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'oxygen-gtk' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    'gtk2-theme-oxygen' providing 'oxygen-gtk' is already installed.                              
    Resolving package dependencies...                                                             
                                                                                                  
    Nothing to do.

    Well, it crashes here as well, somewhere in libpixman.

    I suppose that it's just not compatible with current libraries, not much doable about that without the source code, sorry.

    Maybe run the DOS version in dosbox?

    You need to install "gtk2-engine-oxygen-32bit" (this is what I wrote), not "oxygen-gtk".
    But this doesn't help anyway as I suspected. See my previous post.

    Okay, thank you very much! Maybe we'll have to ask Bryan Lunduke for an RPM repackaging, he's a SUSE spokesman after all!
