SlackBuilds.org Frozen Bubble not working...


Hi all,

I've downloaded and installed Frozen Bubble from SlackBuilds.org, but it won't load. I installed the two libraries they say the program needs, SDL_Perl and SDL_Pango, first. Then I installed Frozen Bubble itself. I've even rebooted, but the game still won't launch.

I'm not even sure how to go about trouble-shooting the installation, so any tips would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,

-Drew

Hi,

Try starting frozen bubble from the command-line and report back what errormessages you get.

Drew,

Not to be rude, but did you ask the SlackBuilds.org guys?

They are available @ #slackbuilds on irc.freenode.net

The guy(s) who wrote the script would be your best help.

Edit: From that frozen-bubble.SlackBuild
Code:
# Slackware build script for Frozen Bubble

You will also need the package "locale-gettext", which is almost available from SlackBuilds.org (it is sitting in the "pending" repository).

Thanks for the help, guys.

Bruce, you're not rude at all -- it simply didn't occur to me to check with the guy who wrote the script.

Regards,

Thanks, everyone.

Hi all,

Alien Bob hit the nail on the head -- I needed the locale-gettext library package. I contacted the fellow who wrote the script, he was aware of the problem and the package is now in the repository.

I installed it and now the game works.

I've learned two things, the first is to try starting a program from the command line to see what errors show up (thanks Yalla-One), and to contact the people working on the repository when there's a problem.

Regards,

-Drew
