Can’t open OpenTTD

Post by EmattpoYouRebooted » 27 May 2019 01:51

When I open OpenTTD via Terminal, I get this error:

Code: Select all

openttd:symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libiculx.so.60: undefined symbol: _ZNK6icu_6012LayoutEngine14getCharIndicesEPiiR11LEErrorCode
When i open via Launcher I get nothing.

I run Ubuntu Budgie 19.04 on an HP Chromebook 11 G5.

:bow: :bow: Help please! :bow: :bow:

Hello,

did you compile the program yourself? The precompiled binary is made for Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS).

Tschö, Auge

Nope. I am trying to compile it now, but that was a .deb install. Now I am stuck at

Code: Select all

no video driver development files found
even though I have libsdl2-dev installed.

Did you read the Wiki page Compiling ion GNU/Linux and BSD, especially the points Step 1. Required/recommended software and how to install it and 1.2. Debian, Ubuntu? Please check the list of dependencies against the installed stuff. Maybe your computer misses a single library.

Tschö, Auge

Never mind, I am switching to my friends on Discord for help. I am now doing the apt build-deb way.

OpenTTD uses SDL 1.2, not SDL 2.
He's like, some kind of OpenTTD developer.
