Good day people.
I consider myself a complete newbie at Linux. But I do not have the gear necessary to run the monster that is Windows 10. So I am stuck with my netbook and Xubuntu 18.04.
As I said, cannot install the .deb files for Ubuntu that are on the main site. They are for 14.04. I get this error:
"The following packages have unmet dependencies:" And then nothing. I do not know what it misses.
Please help.

And how should I install it? I tried the installation page on the wiki and borked my install of Xubuntu to the point I had to reinstall the entire OS. As I said. Newbie here.

Isn't there a PPA that I could use to get continuous updates? Or just install get GitHub (don't know how) and download the latest Master version?

You only have to unpack the generic Linux binary into a subfolder of your home directory. You can start then the program file "openttd" from there.

I have the same problem as the OP, downloaded the Generic binary, unpacked it in my home folder, added the MSX, GFX and sfx folder, tried to start openttd but get the following error:

Code:
mit@andora:~/OTTD/openttd-1.8.0-linux-generic-i686$ ./openttd
./openttd: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Anybody advise

Your issue isn't like the OP's issue at all, it's more helpful to start your own topic for help so that issues do not become confused or cluttered.

With that said, myself also being a novice at Linux (you'd think I wouldn't be after using *nix systems for 25 years now! *SMH*), I'm going to hazard a guess that you need to install libSDL-1.2. This page may be helpful to you. https://www.howtoinstall.co/en/ubuntu/x ... sdl1.2-dev

I shall rephrase my comment and question, I had exactly the same issue trying to install the Debian version of the download file as the OP, not able to install due to libicu52 missing dependency.

So I followed the advise further down the thread from Auge, to simply unpack the binary in your home folder and then just run the ottd file which then (for me) produce the error I posted above.

Going back to my original issue of trying to install the Deb, version of ottd 1.8.0 on Debian Stretch, I have libicu 60 & libicu63 installed on my system, there does not seem to be an option to install libicu52.

In regards to your suggestion to install libSDL-1.2 I already have both libsdl 1.2-dev & libsdl 1.2-debian installed along with a host of other libsdl files.

So consequently I am still stuck.

This was the error message that you posted:
./openttd: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Which suggests your issue with running the generic OpenTTD binary is because libSDL-1.2 isn't installed, or it's installed in a location where the system cannot find it.
