Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Thank you Getafix, You have nothing to apologise for friend. :) I have been looking (on the Linux Forums) for someone that could lead me to the information to re-install the proprietary ATI drivers. Because I am convinced that this is the problem. At least with the display problems. I will follow yo...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Getafix, My friend, please don't think that I am accusing or blaming you for anything. :cry: You have been a tremendous help here and I applaud your efforts regarding this issue. I agree with you , that when I swapped the Radeon card for the PNY Nvidia card, it broke something. At least before the s...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Hi Getafix. Here's the output that you requested. You should know that I am experiencing another problem that is unrelated to Oolite . A few days ago I swapped out my Radeon X300 video card for a PNY GeForce4 MX440se 64MB SDR PCI with TV-Out & RCA Video Card . When I switched back to the Radeon card...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Just to update what's going on with this post. I have tried to reproduce the problem and so far I have not been able to. I have downloaded several OXP's (OXP's that I had before and new ones as well) and installed them the same way that I did before but even with the empty .oxp folders in the AddOns...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Gooday Micha. It's funny you should suggest that. I played Oolite last night for 2 hours straight and not a single problem. Well, except for the issue with that group of pirates that blew my Python and it's cargo into oblivion just short of landing at my destination. (Should have hit "TAB" a little ...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

Getafix. Just wanted to update you on the progress of this post. First, sorry about the length of time between posts. Busy! Busy! Busy! I haven't upgraded the kernel yet and I am hoping that it won't be necessary. On a hunch I went into the /AddOns folder and found a trainload of .Oxp's that didn't ...

Re: Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

That's good advise mate. I am currently investigating the kernel upgrade now. Including the Risks and Benefits, beyond the apparent advantages where Oolite is concerned. I think that if a kernel upgrade will fix this issue with Oolite, Oolite is worth the risk. I will post my results. One more quest...

@Getafix
Just looked at the link you posted, "other people with the same issue" (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=64213) and if I follow your thought, upgrading the kernel my resolve this issue?

[Solved] Not able to launch Oolite from the Oolite Icon

I recently upgraded from Oolite 1.65 to 1.75 using the autopackage update. Since the upgrade I am not able to launch Oolite from the menu icon. The only way that I can start the game is to open a Terminal window and enter the following command: .oolite --nosplash This command allows the game to open...

Re: Which Linux distribution do you run Oolite on?

I realise that this post may be kind'a old now but if it is still being monitored, (and the information still useful) I am running Oolite 1.75 (32bit) version on Linux Mint 10 (Julia) which is a distro of Ubuntu Linux 10.10 . The following is a description of my system: COMPUTER PROCESSOR -- AMD Ath...

NPC ?

Being new to Oolite, I am still learning about the game and its features.
I see NPC mentioned a lot. I am just wondering what NPC stands for.

Thank you.

How do I find the version information?

As ignorant as this sounds, I don't remember what version of Oolite I installed. I have installed and un-installed it so many times that I don't remember. :? Whatever version I am using, it seems to be functioning ok. I am running it on a Linux Mint 10 system. I do have some other questions but I wi...
