Question How Do I Install & Run Game "Undertale Yellow" For Linux On OS Elementary?


Has anyone successfully gotten Undertale Yellow running on Linux? I've been trying different things for hours now without luck.

The linux zip file came with a game.unx file and a file called "runner" not associated w any file type. I'm guessing one of these is key to figuring this out. What should I use to run / open that? Or do u know the terminal command to run/open it?

I'm such a Linux newb, seriously pressing buttons in the dark and figuring it out as I go along. I looked up how to open a .unx file on Linux & it said it needed a text file reader. I tried AbiWord & then LibreOffice, then Sublime Text 2...With AbiWord, it seemed to be doing something very slowly...got to about 94% and stalled, so I closed it. LibreOffice slowly gave me a bunch of junk characters. Sublime Text 2 gave me several columns of 1's and 0's.

Will / can anyone help? PLEASE?

PS- idk if this will help, but I'm running the newest stable Linux OS Elementary on an Acer Aspire 5532

Have you tried double clicking on the runner file in your file manager? That works for me on Linux Mint 18.2.

Alternatively, using the terminal, cd to the directory containing the runner file and run the following command: ./runner

There is no installation. The game runs where it stands.

Thank you so much for ur reply & suggestion. I have tried that, I get the error window "No applications found for 'runner' " with an option to try to open w a selected application. What app did u / should I use? I've tried several. I guess I'll start looking into different file manager apps for linux that might be able to open it?

The file runner is an executable. It works for me double-clicking it in Caja.

Did you try running it from the command line as I advised?

You may need to use chmod +x runner first to allow it to be executed.

Uppacking from the command line, chmod 744 runner, then . ./runner worked fine for me EXCEPT I had to install a bunch of 32-bit libs on my 64-bit system. It does not like or cannot find the 64-bit libs to properly run.


The good news is that it says so clearly, so I knew exactly what to do to fix it.

You guys are amazing! My solution was that I needed to initiate the command chmod +x runner before running it. I got it going now, thank you all tremendously!!!
