SDL error
« on: December 15, 2014, 11:07:29 AM »
When I start my simutrans I get this error.
Code: [Select]
Use work dir /usr/share/games/simutrans/
Reading low level config data ...
parse_simuconf() at config/simuconf.tab: Reading simuconf.tab successful!
Couldn't initialize SDL: No available video device
Failed to initialize backend.
I'm using Ubuntu LTS 64bit and simutrans 64bit.
Thanks in advance.

Then this is a wrongly configure SDL. Simutrans jsut ask for the default mode. Simutrans did run also without a GUI using the framebuffer of SDL. So I am afraid, I cannot help you.
