I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS With 32-bit OS. I am having trouble playing El on Ubuntu.I belive it installed okay. I go to my games folder but the .bin file isn't executable. I have been trying for several days now, have read multiple forums and tried many things suggested. None of them work for me.I am really anxious to get back into playing EL. I've been away waaayyy to long, lol.I did this to install EL: How to install Eternal Lands Ubuntu Packages Open a command line terminal then enter the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pjbroad/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install eternallands This will install the client and data packages, and normally, the sound package too. If the sound package is not included but you want it, use: sudo apt-get install eternallands-sound Additionally, if you want the music use: sudo apt-get install eternallands-music That part seemed to work. First I was receiving error that el.x86.linux.bin was an Unknown file type. I then moved file to another folder so I could mark it as executable file and I was getting same error messages. I did some upgrades and got this message When i double click on el.x86.linux.bin i get this error: Invalid url: '/home/owner/Documents/el.x86.linux.bin' given, exiting No ':' in the uri I have tried chmod commands in terminal but it always says : This file does not exist or can't find el.x86.linux.bin etc. owner@owner-OptiPlex-745:~$ sudo apt-get install eternallands [sudo] password for owner: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done eternallands is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. owner@owner-OptiPlex-745:~$ I even tried this: chmod +x file-name.run Now you can execute the file in the terminal. ./file-name.run If an error message including a problem such as 'permission denied' appears, use sudo to run it as root (admin). Be careful, sudo allows you to make critical changes to your system. Many software installs will require sudo. sudo ./file-name.run owner@owner-OptiPlex-745:~$ chmod +x el.x86.linux.bin chmod: cannot access ‘el.x86.linux.bin’: No such file or directory owner@owner-OptiPlex-745:~$ ./el.x86.linux.bin bash: ./el.x86.linux.bin: No such file or directory owner@owner-OptiPlex-745:~$
If you have upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 Precise, you will notice the Alt key does not work in EL. This is because it has been hijacked by Unity's HUD. To disable the HUD, I used Ubuntu Tweak. You can get it from the ppa at: https://launchpad.net/~tualatrix/+archive/ppa (with instructions there as to what to do) Or you can download from their website: http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ Then in Ubuntu Tweaks go to: Tweaks->Unity. You will see the option to turn off the HUD at the top of the page. As an aside, you can also turn off the Ubuntu log on sound in the Sound option on the Tweaks page.
