first of all thanks to David (also my son's name :) ) for his quick reply to my request
This is mostly a memorandum for what I did.
I was trying to run this game in my office PC (heh) and it was complaining with this error:
error while loading shared libraries: libXxf86vm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I'm not a Linux guru, so after some googling I found what was missing:
libXxf86vm.so.1 => not found
libGLU.so.1 => not found
I'm running on a 64bit system as I said:
3.2.0-24-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Mon May 21 16:52:17 UTC 2012
So I crossed fingers and installed the missing parts (some of them were already installed, I suspect because of Skype dependencies):
sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386
Game ran but audio was missing, but this did the trick:
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-utils:i386
I'd like to hear from others who found similar issues, did I do everything good or should I be ready to reinstall the office environment?
Happy looting everyone
