I've read Timothys http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=8230.0
My server is a rented server with Ubuntu and it works since 2 years with some software successfully. Now I want to use it also as a game server to play Simutrans from different client devices.
At first, some weeks ago, I actualized my PAK128.german on my local PC and I had big stabilization problems with the last official release of Simutrans. So I tried nightlies and with release 7799 I had no more problems. This is the start point to move from PC to server now.
So I downloaded the Linux- and Windows release 7799. Windows as client on my PC (and later Laptop also) and Linux as future server. I moved the PAK128.german in this directories and also save/savegame into the directory on the Linux server.
When I try to start the server with
root@v22015092996427589:/var/opt/simutrans# simutrans -server 8200
I get only this answer:
Die Anwendung »simutrans« ist momentan nicht installiert. Sie können sie durch folgende Eingabe installieren:
apt-get install simutrans
(The application >>simutrans<< is not installed. You can install by using: apt-get...)
And when I try
/var/opt/simutrans/simutrans -server 8200
bash: /var/opt/simutrans/simutrans: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Why? I used the Linux download on the nightly build web page.
Best regards Frank!
