Linux debian distribution file, minor problems
« on: January 26, 2018, 11:32:32 AM »
Greetings, James! Just an FYI, in case you don't know:

I rebuilt my PC (new mainboard, CPU, RAM, graphic card. hurrah!) and am running the 64-bit native Linux version of Simutrans Extended now. During installation I noticed that the deb-archive from http://bridgewater-brunel.me.uk/downloads/nightly/packages/ contains a lot of unnecessary data, amongst other files two times the Britain pakset in 2 different directories (Pak128.Britain-Ex and pak128.Britain-Ex - note the capital and lower-case first letter) and old Experimental and Windows binaries as well.

Dependencies to the SDL libraries (libSDL2) however are missing, thus Simutrans Extended won't run after installation. Needs starting Simutrans from the command line to see the error messages for the missing libraries and installing the libraries manually.

Thanks again for your great work!

Edit: Oops, that thread was meant for the development forum. :)
