I apologize for being so terse and not communicating my gratitude - I cannot express how much I appreciate all that you folks do on this Forum!

I did have SuperTux working without sound before - which is why I was chasing the openGL problem - but the smaller the packge of the app is and the fewer the resources used the better, esp. on this ancient CF-27 laptop. So thanks! Smile

Meanwhile I will download some of the other .PET games - perhaps some of them will provide sound for the kiddies ... on the headphones.

BTW: A few months back I posted a bunch of learning games for Linux - would it be worth posting them again in hopes that someone might package them as .PETs?

"That worked but"


Wow I figured you would be overly excited to finally have it up and running after all the post you made about trying to get it going. Confused Anyways hope your kids like it without sound, Something which is good value for babysitting is always welcomed at my house also, Usually Bratz movie for the girls.
So we purchased a car dvd player with 2 LCD screens for the backseats of the car. Smile That works great for trips also

ttuuxxx,

Ps if your still having troubles I can package it up for you after work tonight without sound.

That worked but does this mean that SuperTux cannot be run on either of my Panasonic Toughbooks with sound?

I tried the "autopackage" version without success but it was supposed to have a workaround for sound that bypassed the openGL problem - did I misunderstand?

supertux-0.3.0-nogl-0.1.4502.x86.package

I suppose it may seem cool to not have the sound when in the car but OTOH I don't know if they will enjoy it as much without the sound. I guess I can try it and see if it has the same "babysitting" value! Smile

Interestingly SuperTux installed without error and appeared in the Menu under Fun after a Reboot.

However, when clicked it does not execute nor does it generate an error.

However, when I open a console/rxvt and type "supertux" I get the error that it cannot find libSDL_image-1.2.so.0

This is on a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28

So, I loaded libSDL_full.pet then tried uperTux from the menu - it balced the screen then till didn't run.

So I opened console/rxvt again and types supertux again and this time got:

Datadir: /usr/bin/../share/supertux
Warning: No joysticks are available

Error: Couldn't load musicfile
/usr/bin/../share/supertux/music/SALCON.MOD


This appears to confirm my prior concern that tgz2pet may not handle all of the folder/library needs - is that a fair assessment?

How would I load this cleanly into Puppy 4.11, please?

I know that a PET or DotPup has been structured to put things in the correct Puppy-specific directories and folders but have not had very good experiences with non-Puppy application and games.

WDYT?

Another fan of clusty.com here! I use google so rarely the last 4 years I have to scratch my head to rememebr how to spell it...

Here's the old version of supertux which requires no opengl or hardwrae acceleration:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/amigolinux/download/Applications/Games/supertux-0.1.3/

Just beside that dir, I have the newer versio also, but I have not tested it because of no accelerated graphics here. The newer version also require more libs than the old one.

When you need hard-to-find libs, you might look here as I have lots of slack-packages for older or rare stuff:

Load sfs then type in terminal:

vitetris
or just tetris if you play it in bare terminal with no X


Now in pet packages at same adress, also added gnuchess and xbubble

Why the 2005 version of SuperTux rather than something more recent, please?

I am wondering if this version has openGL challenges because it is so much older than the associated dependencies?

The NO openGL version is 0.3.0 and is here:
http://prdownload.berlios.de/supertux/supertux-0.3.0-nogl-0.1.4502.x86.package

I have no idea if it will run on Puppy Linux but will give it a try - I am guessing that someone will need to create a PET

0.3.0 is also available with an openGL dependency (not sure why) and o.3.1 is the unstable cutting-edge version - both also probably would need a PET created.

WDYT?

As noted on a thread titled "SDL, OpenGL and Mesa?" here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=254587#254587

...

Quote:
Loaded GLh.pet and libSDL_full.pet then SuperTux.

Same as before, SuperTux loads but "openGL not supported".

NOTE1: It appears that loading libSDL.pet before GLh.pet does not work, SuperTux would not open - I had to reload libSDL_full.pet then reload SuperTux after GLh.pet Is that predictable behavior?

NOTE2: I have my-documents symlinked to workaround the size limitation of pup_save.2fs - it is still on the same sda1 partition - the CF-27 only has a 3.32GB HDD.


Any thoughts, please?

Barrage is not the only source of the SDL files needed for SuperTux according to a post here:

Try getting this package http://tdem.net63.net/linux/files/libSDL_full.pet . Only 335 kb!


My old CF-27 is choking on all of the stuff I've thrown at it so I will need to reformat to clean it all out, reload Puppy 4.11-Normal ext3 Frugal and try again with a set of files I have gathered for the effort.

Will report back as to my success with openGL and SDL and SuperTux!

I read this thread ...
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=10960&start=135

which motivate me to go here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=235185#235185[/url

If I understand correctly LIT3 will manage the locating and installation of just about anything specifically designed for Puppy - including, hopefully, solving my openGL problem.

Yes?
