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?

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
