How might I go about running Tux: A Quest for Herring on modern Debian?


For starters, where might I even download the game? Second, once I do find the game, what might I need to get it running? Has anyone successfully run the game anytime recently?

I'd just like to try playing this rather historic (if underrated) FOSS game starring everyone's favorite chubby penguin.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tux....0.14-classic/

Looks lik it is cpp.
https://github.com/malespiaut/tuxaqf...er/src/tux.cxx

You can try to build it if you have the depends installed, if it is not in debians repos.

I tried on Debian Stable from the sourceforge package, but failed. The github link is missing configure, so didn't know how to try that one.

Code:

Get source.
https://github.com/malespiaut/tuxaqfh

Start to build it.
Code:
./autogen.sh
configure.ac:8: installing './compile'
configure.ac:5: installing './install-sh'
configure.ac:5: installing './missing'
Makefile.am: installing './INSTALL'
src/Makefile.am: installing './depcomp'

./configure

config.status: creating src/Makefile
config.status: creating wavs/Makefile
config.status: executing depfiles commands
...needs plib

#Get a copy of plib, decompress. build it
Code:
curl https://plib.sourceforge.net/dist/plib-1.8.5.tar.gz -o plib-1.8.5.tar.gz
tar xzf plib-1.8.5.tar.gz

./configure
...
config.status: creating src/net/Makefile
config.status: executing depfiles commands
PLIB configuration information:

make[1]: Entering directory '/me/cpp/plib/plib-1.8.5'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for 'all-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory 'me/cpp/plib/plib-1.8.5
I don't want to install this. plib did build, tuxaqfh look like it is going to build. You don't have to install plib after you build it, but The OP will need to tell tuxaqfh Makefile where it can find pblib, if you leave it in the build dir.

For debian (as topic suggests), easiest just to install libplib-dev package instead of building that manually. I also had to install libxmu-dev and libxi-dev.

The clue I got from you was to run autogen.sh before configure for the github version; that wasn't in the instructions.

But I got a different error than with the sourceforge code.
Code:
/usr/bin/ld: gui.o: in function `GUI::GUI()':
/home/legacy/tuxaqfh/src/gui.cxx:172: undefined reference to `jsJoystick::jsJoystick(int)'
/usr/bin/ld: gui.o: in function `GUI::joystickInput()':
/home/legacy/tuxaqfh/src/gui.cxx:276: undefined reference to `jsJoystick::read(int*, float*)'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [Makefile:410: tux_aqfh] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/legacy/tuxaqfh/src'
make: *** [Makefile:362: all-recursive] Error 1

Arch has plib in the AUR. I will use this version.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/plib
https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.g...KGBUILD?h=plib

And this source for tuxaqfh
https://github.com/malespiaut/tuxaqfh

Already had libxi, libxmu.

I got the same errors, so...I remarked out lines 172, 276 in gui.cxx

And that compiled.

Code:
./tux_aqfh --help

To the OP. It is build-able from the above source.
Followed your advice but I'm still having issues. The compilation goes fine until it tries to compile in the penguin directory, to which it throws up the following lines:

Code:
Making install in penguin
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/tronnerd82/gits/tuxaqfh/penguin'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'configure.ac', needed by 'all-am'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/tronnerd82/gits/tuxaqfh/penguin'
make: *** [Makefile:362: install-recursive] Error 1
I'm not sure if it's doing this because I have the files in a special directory for things I get off of GitHub and it expects to be somewhere else, or if there's more code that needs to be commented out or what. Not to seem noob-ish but I require further help with this, as C++ and Makefile syntax are not my specialty.

Any help is appreciated, and I'm grateful to have gotten this far. All of you guys' help means a lot.

Did that spit out an executable at <your_build_path>/tuxaqfh-master/src/tux_aqfh

Will that executable run?
Code:
<your_build_path>/tuxaqfh-master/src/tux_aqfh --help
I did not work out all of the changes needed in that code tree to make it work on a modern sound system, modern joystick etc. It was just to get it running. That executable has a segfault when I try and use some of those switches.

If you want to use this old source tree, you'll have work the problems, do some research and see what needs to be done to fix it. It may be syntax has changed, paths have changed....May take you a while.

This will be a good opportunity for you to learn. It's more enjoyable to work on something that you actually want to use, rather than just an example out of a book.

You can't, on a forum like this, help someone debug a code tree like that. The thread will be 80 posts long, and still nothing.

You need to learn.

Here is what you need.
https://cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/
https://en.cppreference.com/w/
https://cplusplus.com/reference/

https://plib.sourceforge.net/
https://plib.sourceforge.net/examples.html

Search youtube for codebeauty, she gives lots of examples.

You can search a code tree for occurrences of <something> that you are looking for.

Example:
Code:
cd <path>/tux/tuxaqfh-master

grep -R '<plib' *
src/components.cxx:#include <plib/ssg.h>
src/penguin.h:#include <plib/ssg.h>
src/penguin.h:#include <plib/ssgKeyFlier.h>
src/rocket.h:#include <plib/ssg.h>
src/orca.h:#include <plib/ssg.h>
src/orca.h:#include <plib/ssgKeyFlier.h>
src/tux.h:#include <plib/ssg.h>
src/tux.h:#include <plib/ssgKeyFlier.h>
src/tux.h:#include <plib/sl.h>
src/tux.h:#include <plib/js.h>
src/tux.h:#include <plib/fnt.h>
Happy troubleshooting.
