  1. Hi, The FAQ for getting TDM running on 64-bit Linux (which is now very common) http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=FAQ#Does_it_run_in_64_Bit_Linux.3F simply says: "Install the ia32 package". However, that package hasn't been part of Ubuntu for many years now. Having scoured the forums, it seems that the actual answer for how to do it on modern Ubuntus starts with: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 But then I get stick with an "Unable to initialize OpenGL" error, and I can't figure out which package to install to make it go away. Can someone please post, and add to the FAQ, a step-by-step set of instructions for getting TDM running on a stock copy of both the latest LTS and the latest normal 64-bit Ubuntu? Thanks :-) Gerv
  2. I had this problem - I got music but a black screen - on Ubuntu 12.04. I fixed it by doing: sudo apt-get install driconf Run driconf, and on the "Image Quality" tab, set "Enable ST3C texture compression even if software support is not available" to "Yes". Close driconf. Then, the menu worked. (Although it's still not setting the screen resolution back to the original resolution when it quits...) Hope this helps someone. Gerv
