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.
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.
