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 😀June 18, 2017 at 8:57 am #8803
You did something like, sudo apt-get g++?June 18, 2017 at 9:35 am #8805
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.June 18, 2017 at 11:12 am #8806

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.December 29, 2017 at 7:00 pm #12503December 30, 2017 at 9:48 am #12524December 30, 2017 at 12:29 pm #12526
I’ve got ubuntu and the git source, but where the hell do I install them?December 30, 2017 at 2:56 pm #12527
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.December 31, 2017 at 7:38 am #12536
brilliant. I’ll give it a go ….January 2, 2018 at 8:03 am #12563
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?January 2, 2018 at 8:16 am #12564
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 :Monkey1234567891011sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgradesudo apt-get install g++-multilib libglu1-mesa-dev libopenal-dev libxi-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libxxf86vm-dev libx11-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libpulse-devcd Desktopsudo chmod +x -R ./monkey2-developcd monkey2-develop/scripts./rebuildall2go.shJanuary 2, 2018 at 9:24 pm #12579
^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?January 3, 2018 at 6:25 am #12584
yep. Sounds good.
@abakobo thanks for the listing. the sudo part was excellent
nothing about linux is a simple thing -hmmJanuary 3, 2018 at 6:53 am #12585
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)
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…
