Installation of TDM 2.0 with ubuntu 13.04

Hi!

 

Since I am trying out ubuntu 13.04 right now, I thought that I should try installing TDM 2.0. So I checked the wiki and tried my best.

As it is a standalone version now, I saved the TDM Updater (tdm_update_linux.zip) in the folder ~/.darkmod/ (instead of in a doom3 folder)

(btw: why does it need to be a hidden folder?).

I extracted the file, made it executable by right-clicking it

(Properties->Permissions->Allow executing file as program (Checkbox)).

Then I double-clicked the tdm_update.linux. Magically files did appear (also a folder 'fms' containing the training mission and tears of st lucia).

But now I'm stuck. Double-clicking the .pk4 files did not work. Dash gives no results for neither darkmod nor tdm. How do I get to play it?

 

Well, I'm pretty sure I provoked some severe facepalms by now, but every help is highly appreciated...

Under Linux, the general rule is if you want to execute a binary in the current directory, you call it like this:

 

./thedarkmod.x86

 

(not thedarkmod.x86)

If you try typing thedarkmod.x86 while it is in the current directory, it will indeed tell you there is no such file or directory.

You can double-click thedarkmod.x86 once its made executable.

Remember that file names in Linux are case sensitive.

Also, run the updater in a terminal so you can see the output. It will tell you "Your TDM installation is up to date".

Ah, now I see what the computer is actually doing! I needed to find out how to run a programm from the terminal, but google knew.

Sorry for being so stupid, but I'm willing to learn. Thanks a lot!

It's me again, because this does not look right:

I wonder if you have the boost libraries installed? I'm not SURE if that's the problem, but I think TDM requires them. Hopefully one of the devs who is familiar with Linux can answer that. I'm familiar with Linux, I'm juist not a developer.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
