TDM 2.0 Cannot start [solved]


Recommended Posts

Dear All,


I cannot start TDM 2.0, because it says:


root@JESSIE-K55VD:/home/ptoth/TheDarkMod# ./thedarkmod.x86

./thedarkmod.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libXxf86vm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



I Googled the problem as much as I could:


My params: ASUS K55VD


1, uname -a: 3.10-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.11-1 (2013-09-10) x86_64 GNU/Linux

2, TDM version: 2.0

3, I already installed libtxc-dxtn0 package from debian-multimedia repo (As Debian.org recommends)

4, I have the latest version from both libxxf86dga1 and libxxf86vm1 (devel packages are not installed)


Thanks for any help from you!

It looks like your folder name for the mod is TheDarkMod. It has to be named simply darkmod, all lower case. We've tried to make that information easily accessible but since there was a huge demand on our servers at first, some may have missed those directions about the folder name.


Try renaming the folder to darkmod, hopefully that will fix the issue.

I've installed libxxf86dga-dev, libxxf86dga1, libxxf86vm-dev, libxxf86vm1 packages from the debian testing branch.


libxxf86vm1 version: 1:1.1.3-1

libxxf86dga version: 2:1.1.4-1


Which version do you have? Do I have to install it from the SID branch?

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
