    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    I didn't think I had wifi, I figured my internet connection problem was with the laptop, since the cable worked just fine for my gaming laptop. Turns out the internet problem was just my router having some sort of security "feature" that blocks an active connection when you change the device on...

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    RESOLVED. Connected to the internet through wifi, used sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0-0 After that and applying Osprey's tips, Mike's way works. Lesson learned: Linux is doable, but offline Linux is hard. Thanks again all involved!

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    It's an unmodified Ubuntu 22.04.4 image that I downloaded from somewhere. I'm actually quite certain your way would work with a working internet connection - but I just plugged the cable in and still had no connection. I'm typing this on my Windows laptop using the same cable. So now I'm looking...

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    We're making progress :) Osprey was right about the permissions. I couldn't change the permissions at first but I could after moving the files from the USB to the hard drive. Then I tried Mike's method again, it definitely does something now: "./schismtracker: error while loading shared...

    Thanks for all the replies! So far none of them have worked, but I assume KGIII's method relies on an online resource. I'll try that again when I come home from work, but with an internet cable plugged in. Mike's solution actually looks like the way I'd want it to work - but it doesn't. When I...

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    My apologies for trying your patience, but it doesn't work for me. I used right-click, Extract Here ( I don't get the Unzip option but I assume they're the same) and then I have a new directory with the aforementioned 8 files in it. I tried using right-click/Open With Software Install on the Zip...

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    Thank you for taking the time to help me! There were in fact 8 files inside the zip file: configuration.md COPYING COPYING.Xiph libFLAC.so.8 libogg.so.0 README.md schismtracker schismtracker.1 The one just named "schismtracker" would be my most likely candidate, but if I right-click/open it...

    Very new to Linux, want to install Schism Tracker

    Full disclosure: Got my very first Linux laptop by using Rufus to install Ubuntu on an Asus minilaptop that I bought for offline use. I have never installed a program in Linux before. I've downloaded the Linux 64-bit build from the schismtracker.org website and have it on a USB-stick. That's as...
