Hoi, I recently bought the Linux version of X3: Reunion from GOG, but I can't find a way to start it.
My system: Fedora 32, 64-bit version
I went via terminal into the X3 Reunion folder and started it by:
Which gave me:
./X3R_config: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I looked in the folder
libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 was there.
Then I thought, oh, I forgot to install the mentioned programs listed on the GOG page.
Requires the following packages to be installed: libc6:i386 libasound2:i386 libasound2-data:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libxml2:i386 and dependencies. This game comes with a 32-bit binary only
Through internet research I think I found the corresponding Fedora programs and installed them:
- glibc-devel.i686, which installed libxcrypt-devel.i686 as dependency
- alsa-lib.i686 (was already installed)
- alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 (because pulseaudio was the only one installed in the 64-bit version I thought that would be the one for this game)
- gtk2.i686, which installed atk.i686, gdk-pixbuf2-modules.i686 and jasper-libs.i686 as dependencies
- libxml2-devel.i686, which installed cmake-filesystem.i686, xz-devel.i686, xz-devel.x86_64 and zlib-devel.i686 as dependencies
Then I tried to start the game again, this time I got:
./X3R_config: lib/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /lib/libpng16.so.16)
Through some research I came to this site here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48306849/lib-x86-64-linux-gnu-libz-so-1-version-zlib-1-2-9-not-found
and tried the second solution:
cd /your_software/../lib/ (the directory containing libz.so.1) mv libz.so.1 libz.so.1.old ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libz.so.1
Because in Fedora is no
lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ I found out that the corresponding folder should be
So I did:
cd /usr/lib/ sudo mv libz.so.1 libz.so.1.old sudo ln -s /lib64/libz.so.1
Sadly this didn't help.
Recently I had a similar case with the Linux version of Mount & Blade: Warband from GOG, which gave me after start something like this:
error while loading shared libraries: libcurl-gnutls.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But the solution was:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4 /usr/lib64/libcurl-gnutls.so.4
And the game started after that normally.
Maybe that helps...
If I forgot anything I will add it, I only use Linux for browsing and some office / gaming, so when it comes down to it, I am only a beginner ;)
Thank you in advance.
