Simutrans on linux (debian)
« on: June 18, 2017, 05:13:43 PM »
Hi,

Where do I place the pak files on a linux pc?

Also has anyone done a good music pak as my simutrans is silent except for the odd train noise

Unless you are using some modified build, pak sets are installed as subdirectories in the Simutrans program directory, while (unless single-user installation is used) add-on pak files go in the simutrans configuration/save-game directory in each user's home directory.

Simutrans comes with music, but it may be that MIDI playback isn't supported on your system. (I play with neither sound nor music, though.)

pak files go to ~/simutrans/pakXY, or ~/simutrans/addons/pakXY. If you have installed from distribution repository (debian) it may be also i ~/.simutrans/...

To play MIDI music you need midi player installed. I use timidity.

That's your user directory, paksets must be installed in the same directory Simutrans is installed (where the executable is).

Thanks btw I managed to find the correct directory

You can use below command to copy the folderrs to the correct directory (if anyone else comes across this)

sudo cp -r simutrans /usr/share/games/simutrans

Music still doesn't work however. I have timidity installed :/

I have this error
