1) open terminal
2) cd /home/yourname/yourwagicfolder
2.5) (if needed: chmod u+x ./wagic - or whatever the executable is called)
3) ./wagic (or whatever the executable is called)

Without the error message, there's pretty much nothing I can do. I'm assuming you are missing some dependencies, but if you can't tell me which ones, it's going to be tough...
If you can't manage to run it from the command line, try to install zlib, libpng, fmod, giflib and freetype for a start.

Sorry for the poor support on the linux part, there's just not enough linux users on the forum yet :(


the error that appears when I try to run the terminal

"error while loading shared libraries: libfmod-3.75.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory''

So, I think you need to install fmod 3.75 (this is for audio effects in Wagic)

from this thread:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=330602

Code: Select all
wget http://www.fmod.org/index.php/release/version/fmodapi375linux.tar.gz
tar -xvzf fmodapi375linux.tar.gz
cd fmodapi375linux/api
sudo cp libfmod-3.75.so /usr/lib

I don't know, I don't use linux, but I would suppose fmod comes with some sort of installing script that does the right thing for you

hello,
I successfully installed wagic 0.13.1 on Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat - using the information on this thread and following wololo's advice about checking the installed libraries on standard repository of ubuntu (using search of Synaptic Package Manager)

zlib: "zlib1g"
libpng: "libpng12-0"
giflib: for this library i installed all i have found
"giflib-tools"
"giflib-dbg"
"libgif4"
"libgif-dev"


fmod
- installed following advice of devi59
- download rpm - fmod-3.75-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm - (if you search with google you will find it)
- converted with alien in .deb
- double click on .deb package

thanks :D

The link posted a while back seems to be dead I found the file at a different site after a bit of looking
Code: Select all
wget http://www.fmod.org/files/fmod3/fmodapi375linux.tar.gz

that should download the fmodapi375linux.tar.gz file for the broken link

I read through this thread and eventually got it working, thanks to everyone for the information. Since some of the instructions may have been hard to follow for some people I decided to make a step by step n00b guide for getting Wagic working on Ubuntu 10.10. Follow this process from beginning to end and it will work on any fresh install.


open synaptic package manager(which you can find under System/Administration), enter your password when prompted and search for each these, mark each one for installation:

zlib:
"zlib1g"

libpng:
"libpng12-0"

giflib:
"giflib-tools"
"giflib-dbg"
"libgif4"
"libgif-dev"

We will also need Alien too:

alien:
"alien"

which should also automatically select all of Alien's dependancies, which are:

"libstdc++6-4.4-dev"
"g++-4.4"
"g++"
"rpm"
"rpm2cpio"
"libdpkg-perl"
"dpkg-dev"
"html2text"
"libunistring0"
"gettext"
"intltool-debian"
"po-debconf"
"debhelper"
"librpmiol"
"rpm-common"
"librpm1"
"librpmbuild1"
"rpm2cpio"
"rpm"
"libalgorithm-diff-perl"
"libalgorithm-merge-perl"
"libsys-hostname-long-perl"

Now click apply and wait while all of these packages are downloaded, once that is done we still need fmod:


download the .rpm from:

http://pkgs.org/centos-5-rhel-5/rpmforg ... 6.rpm.html


convert the .rpm to a .deb with alien like so:
open a terminal and navigate to the directory where you have saved the .rpm then type: sudo alien -d fmod-3.75-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

enter your password.

- double click on .deb package which will launch the ubuntu software centre, click install and enter your password.

Now we are ready to install Wagic itself, not just its dependancies, so download Wagic here (either linux version)

http://wololo.net/wagic/download/

unpack the file to a directory of your choosing, then click on the wagic binary to get started.

Have fun!

Hopefully one day there will be a more simplified install process that checks for dependencies and automatically installs them, but for the moment, this is how it is done.

now you can run Wagic.
