    When compiling on a fresh install on Ubuntu (might be the same with other Linux versions) I got a g++ error as it wasnt installed. Might be a good idea to add it to the Linux section of the github and downloadables readme file.

    Now its installed its compiling fine so far 😀

    You did something like, sudo apt-get g++?

    I used:

    sudo apt-get install g++ xorg-dev qtcreator libopenal-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libsdl2-dev

     

    It compiled and works perfectly now 🙂

     

    Credit for this goes to Richard Betson as it was his monkey-x.com post that helped immensely.

    Yo EdzUp! Do you have a local copy of that little guide I did. 🙂 Can’t seem to find it here. I’d like to redo it as I’m about to do a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.3 as a daily driver.

    On Ubuntu? I store mine in the ‘ home ‘ directory. In that directory I made a folder (directory) called programming/monkey2/ . Anywhere in the home directory is fine.

    ok, got it all in the home folder. But what do I do next?

    I tried running rebuildall, but get errors about the missing linux mx2cc. when I try and download it from git I get some sort of compressed _dms file?

    any suggestions?

    let’s say you’ve unzipped your monkey-develop from github to the Desktop (which is in the home folder).

    on freshly installed Mint, I got build working typing the following, there may be some new libs to install now but it worked at the time :

    ^I’m about to get Mint 18.3 going and run through all of this including Emscipten and Android. I’ll look over what you have done vs. what I end up doing. I’ll post a new install guide and we all can work to improve it. 😉 Sound good?

    yep. Sounds good.
    @abakobo thanks for the listing. the sudo part was excellent

    nothing about linux is a simple thing -hmm

    ok. I think it compiled – everything looked like it was compiling anyway.

    next problem – I’m HATING linux

    go into the monkey folder
    Monkey2(Linux) is listed (although icon looks like text)
    click Monkey2(Linux)
    it pops up a dialog ‘could not display “Monkey2(Linux)”‘. There is no application installed for shard files.

    Anyone have a scoobie what is going wrong now?

    I know it’s now me but surely there must be a simple way to do this. Even DOS was a walk in the park compared to this…
