I do appreciate it. I've had to rebuild my Linux systems and was a bit dismayed when I found my copy of D3 Loki is missing Disc 1. What you've done here will help greatly. :)

Oh heck. :? I can't seem to get that command rename to lowercase command to work (3.3 in the instructions). I get a message:
Code:
bash: sytax error near unexpected token 'do'
Don't have any idea what to do about it.

For now, I'm getting a message "Unable to open font lohud.fnt" when I try to run the game.


EDIT: I found my Disc 1 of my Linux Descent 3 ... but it won't install. When I try to run the installer it tells me:
Code:
setup.sh: 9: setup.sh: function: not found
x86


Any suggestions?

32bit. Didn't delete any original folders.

The system is Xubuntu 13.04 (Xfce Ubuntu).

Also tried running the Descent 3 Loki CD on a Linux Mint (Mate) 14.1 that has never had any Descent 3 on it ... got the same bash message.

Yes, I made sure I was running with root access.

Just recently tried out your guide to get a Windows install converted to Zorin OS 8 (*buntu 13.10, basically). Did all the symlinking of libGL and /dev/js0, but had a hell of a time getting something to recreate an OSS sound server. padsp, which was suggested in a few threads across the 'net, did nothing but reboot the X server to a login screen. I did, however, find another program, osspd, that does work, now the game works 100%. Too bad Vortex doesn't work in linux, but as long as other trackers have ways of launching with the server IP in the game, I'll take it.

padsp is an OSS compatibility tool for pulse audio - if you're not running pulse, it isn't going to work.

If just running ALSA, aoss is the equivalent.

It looks like osspd is built to support both ALSA and Pulse.

I think it's time for me to update the Linux Files and HOWTO.

It's only been what, 15 years?

Geez I'm old.

Bump for great justice. Will update when it's done.

You're welcome! I haven't had much time to play lately. I *did* get it working on my new machine, just haven't updated the HowTo yet.

Still happy that people are still playing this, though! Need to get my kids playing through it.

Holy freaking cow. I forgot this thread was here!
Okay, okay... couple of quick questions. Looks like it's an OpenGL issue. What version of Linux are you using? What graphics card do you have? Which drivers are you using? (open source, oem, etc.)
What version of X do you have installed? Do you run other games on it? Have you read through the HOWTO? Made a symlink to the proper libGL.so files?
Let us know... we'll see what we can do.

My wild guess is that you are running 64-bit linux but are missing the 32-bit version of the mesa DRI library. On a debian-based distro, you would fix this by:

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386

I have no idea what happened, but I had to reinstall Linux for other reasons - and now descent3 is working.

Even on the new install, I was getting that same error until I installed the libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 package, which I installed because it was required for Steam as explained here: https://wiki.debian.org/Steam. I can't believe that package wouldn't have been installed on my old system, though...

What luck.

Very weird, it suddenly doesn't work any more. Same error. No clue what I changed that broke it. However at least we know it CAN work.

Version of linux: Debian stretch
Graphics card: GeForce 590
Drivers: nvidia-driver package
X version: 1.19.2
Other games: Yes.
Read HOWTO: I have not created a symlink, but it looks like descent3 can find libGL.so, there's just an error. I guess it's using the 64-bit one instead of the 32-bit one or something but I have no idea.

That package is already installed.

Aaaah, yes. Steam actually has its own versions of certain packages, including libGL and others. They do this just in case the system repos don't have them, but on newer systems, they actually interfere with the installed ones and tend to break stuff.

Try this: rename the pre-installed libraries, and see if that fixes it.
They will be in ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
Also in ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

cd ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak
cd ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak

Really, you don't need ANY of these files if you have a properly functioning GLX environment, so you could try renaming the whole directory. DON'T DELETE IT! Just rename it, try it, and put it back if that didn't fix it.
Heck, you could rename the entire .local/share/Steam folder temporarily.

Give that a shot and see what it does.

Reinstalled linux again, found the culprit. The package I installed that broke descent3 was libgl1-mesa-dev:i386. Now trying to figure out how to run descent3 even with that package installed...

Also, there's no sound :/

The sound problem is pretty easy to fix: put "padsp" before "descent3" in your shortcut. It's a Pulse Audio wrapper.

Are you sure it's the "dev" version of that package? That just has source code and programming resources. Do you mean libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 or libgl1-mesa-dri:i386?

Ah good, padsp fixes it. Yes, I'm sure it's the "dev" package.
