I just bought the Humble Bundle 8 mostly because I liked the looks of “Thomas was alone”.
Sadly the download is just a tar file, which I always find a little off putting. It took a little tinkering to get it going so I thought I would save someone else the searching by writing it here.
Extract the contents of the tar file in whatever way makes you happy.
mike@sleepycat:~/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone$ ls thomasWasAlone thomasWasAlone_Data mike@sleepycat:~/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone$ chmod +x thomasWasAlone
My problem was that I got an error when I tried to run it:
./thomasWasAlone: error while loading shared libraries: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But its easy enough to fix:
mike@sleepycat:~/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following extra packages will be installed: ...lots of packages and installation stuff...
And finally it works:
mike@sleepycat:~/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone$ ./thomasWasAlone Set current directory to /home/mike/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone Found path: /home/mike/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone/thomasWasAlone Mono path = '/home/mike/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone/thomasWasAlone_Data/Managed' Mono path = '/home/mike/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone/thomasWasAlone_Data/Mono' Mono config path = '/home/mike/Downloads/thomasLinuxStandalone/thomasWasAlone_Data/Mono/etc'
