  1. freyk, Here is my condump, as requested: Also, this is what happened after the condump, when I went through the game exit procedure:
  2. Yea!!!!! Thanks to NightStalker for the comparison between what I had versus what he had. I installed 'libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386', and changed the 'seta sys_videoRam' from "0" to "256". I can now see the Main Menu and get into the 'Training Mission'. *** The need for this file and the other files noted in a previous post should be noted in the installation instructions for Linux users. *** (BTW NightStalker: I was a SLACKer for many years, until I finally got tired of constantly having to spend time figuring out drivers and configuration issues when upgrading OS versions and installing new software. I went from Slack to Ubuntu to Mint.)
  3. NightStalker, thanks for the friendly, but strong, suggestion. I edited my previous posts and added spoiler sections. Next, here is a short output from glxgears: The output of testing 'tdm_gui01.pk4' is: 'test of tdm_gui01.p4 OK' The rest I will have to work on tonight. Again, thanks for the spoiler suggestion.
  4. nbohr1more, all of the files in the darkmod folder have <me> : <me> as the owner. Since I am the only one that will be playing the game, there is no reason to perform a chown to the files (<me> : users, for example). As noted in the preceding sentence, the two executables 'tdm_update.linux' and 'thedarkmod.x86' are both owned by me ( <me> : <me>). Also, the permissions are 755 for both files. The permissions on the remaining files, including the .pk4 files, are 644. The permissions on the 'fms' and 'screenshots' directories are 755.
  5. Springheel, I did check and found 'tdm_gui01.pk4' in the darkmod directory. It's size is 26,622,315 bytes. I noticed that there are other files in some of the .pk4 files that are not being loaded. I wonder if the problem may be with the program opening the .pk4 files.
  6. freyk, I performed the following from the link you noted: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libglapi-mesa:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 wget unzip sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/games/darkmod sudo chown -R nobody:users /usr/share/games/darkmod sudo chmod uga+w /usr/share/games/darkmod exitI moved all of my darkmod files to the new directory (which makes sense), reran 'tdm_update.linux', made 'thedarkmod.x86' executable, and tried to run it again. Again, black screens, which were mirroring each other when I exited the program. I changed the darkmod.cfg as shown in my first post, and ran 'thedarkmod.x86' again. This time, a black window. Here is my new console dump: Any thoughts?
  7. nbohr1more, I know nothing about the 32-bit S3TC libraries. The version 2.05 installation instructions said to install the "package called ia32-lib and and its dependencies", which I had 'ia32-libs' already installed as a requirement for another application. I am assuming that since ia32-libs was installed via apt-get, all of its dependencies were installed also.
  8. Okay, in the forums I found where I can type the tilde ('~') character to get to a console. Great! Here is the 'dump' from my condump:
  9. Yesterday I installed 'The Dark Mod' version 2.05 on my computer. ('tdm_update.linux' worked great, but took FOREVER. The resultant 'thedarkmod.x86' file is 6.5 MB in size.) My issues: When starting the program (./thedarkmod.x86), I get great audio, but only a black screen (window).When running on full desktop mode (not in a window), both monitors go black.I can hear clicking when I move the (invisible) mouse pointer within the black screen. Unfortunately, the only way I found to get things back to 'normal' is to do a 'CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE', since I cannot get the mouse pointer to my desktop (when running in window mode).I cannot see what errors I may have gotten when launching from the command line, because of having to re-start my session (see line above). My computer system: OS: Linux Mint 17.3 (64 bit) CPU: Intel Core i7-3610QM @ 2.30 GHz x 4 System RAM: 8 GB Video Controller: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Video Card: AMD / ATI Heathrow PRO [Radeon HD 7850M/8850M] Video RAM Available: 2048 MB Displays: Laptop [1920 x 1080 (16:9)], Standalone monitor [1920 x 1080 (16:9)] Anyway, from searching the forum for possible things to do to get video, I changed the following lines in my Darkmod.cfg file: seta com_videoRam "2048" seta r_aspectRatio "1" seta r_fullscreen "0" seta r_customHeight "900" seta r_customWidth "1600" seta r_mode "-1" seta sys_videoRam "0" Still, I get the black screen (window). My Darkmod.log shows: Any thoughts on how to actually 'see' what is hiding inside the black screen (or window)?
