frozen bubble
dear all,

i've tried installing this wonderful game from it all installed fine. however, when i run the game, just nothing happens.

i also tried getting the package from it installed the same way, still i don't get it to run.

i just click on Actions / Run i type frozen_bubble and... nothing.

any ideas?

that is, with a hyphen instead of an underscore. If that still doesn't work, try running it from the terminal and post the output.

Hope this helps,

The website has a list of dependencies, make sure that all of them are installed.

thank you but the linked post was useless to me, since i did not experience the same error.

well, i got back to the old school, got ALL dependencies and compiled them from source. using linuxpackages just didn't do.

i can happily play now :D

long lives slack :)

I had this problem also... what I did was to go back to the Frozen-Bubble site and download the dependencies - you shouldn't need Perl, that should already be on your system. Install SDL_image first, then SDL_mixer, then SDL, then perl-SDL.

Then you can install Frozen-Bubble. Even if you've already done all this, do it again in this order, and give it a try.

Try it without installing Perl - I'll bet it works now.
