  • X-Plane 10 on Ubuntu 13.10

    Hi James.
    I took the bold step and like you suggested created a seperate partition by moving some files arround for Ubuntu 13.10.

    This is now installed. I did it twice because I noticed some lag in my graphics envirement and thought it was due to the lack of a good driver for my video card. However after installing the software from the website from ATI and rebooting my screen was black and remained firmly black so I had to do a "repair" of ubuntu.

    Anyway after the first time I installed Ubuntu I also tried to install X-Plane 10 and got an error message. Unfortunately due to the resintallation of Ubuntu I do not know what it said but it had to do with libraries not excisting.

    However if I now try to install X-Plane I get another message
    Code:
    lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$ ./"X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux"
    bash: ./X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux: file or folder does not exist.
    lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$  ls
    amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run  Tshock server
    forum tekst                              X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux

    lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$
    But as you can see the file exists. I also made it executible by adding the +x to the file but that didn't help as far as I can see.
    I also find the ldd option to see what libraries but I get the responce "no dynamic excecutable file found".

    Do you have any suggestions?
    Of course if you need more information just let me know.

    I'll be glad to help.

    While the remedy is simple and easy, there are a number of steps for various programs that have problems in a 64 bit environment.

    I have done it every time I've done a fresh install. However, I never wrote down the exact of each step. Helping you in this thread should be a step to having a resource of clear definition.

    You can start out by running:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0
    This what has replaced the "ia32-libs" compatibility package in Ubuntu.

    Once you have run that, try your install again and post the error(s).

      Great help James.

      Ok so I'm indeed back to the error message I had after the first install.

      Code:
      lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$ ./"X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux"
      ./X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
      lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$ ldd ./"X-Plane 10 DVD Installer Linux"

          libGL.so.1 => not found
          libGLU.so.1 => not found
          libXext.so.6 => not found
          libX11.so.6 => not found
          libXrandr.so.2 => not found
          libpthread.so.0 => /lib32/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7738000)

          /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf776d000)
      lex@ubuntulex:~/Bureaublad$
      I'll try and look on the internet as well. This will not be tonight and tomorrow but hopefully on sunday. If you have any suggestions then of course I'm greatfull again.

        Try this:

        Code:
        sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 libglu1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa:i386 libxrandr2:i386
        I'm certain this will resolve your issue. Thanks in advance for confirming.t

          Hi James,
          The meeting ended early so just did your sudo list and it processed a lot of items.
          But with good result. Attached the list of output.

          Unfortunately the output is too long for a thread message. But itś most likely about the installation of all the libraries. I didn't se any errors so it went well.

          I then started the install of X-Plane and it's installed.
          You are a great help again!.

          However...
          Now I get an error message. Itś going to fast to reed because I need to click äccept to get on going. But it's something with OpenGL still. Perhaps I do need to install the ATI drivers for the video card specifically now.
          I got the message that X-Plane needed updating so It downloaded a new installer. If I start that I get a new error message. Should I start a new thread?

          Code:
          lex@ubuntulex:~/X-Plane 10$ ./"X-Plane 10 Installer Linux"
          Setting draggable to: 0
          WARNING: unable to set v-sync; glXSwapIntervalSGI returned the error 6.
          X-System Error:
          X-Plane does not support the Gallium driver stack.
          First, try updating or re-installing your graphics drivers.
          If this does not help, check your graphics card specifications.
          For tech support, email info@x-plane.com
          Sorry.
          lex@ubuntulex:~/X-Plane 10$
          Because itś most likely about the videocard driver I need to upgarde. Well it's late now and I need to get up early in the morning so I'll worry about that later this weekend.
          Thanks still for your help I'm at least glad I got it installed.

            For the graphics try:

            Code:
            $ sudo apt-get install libGL.so*
            I'm glad to see you taking my advise to dive into Linux. People can have a problem with some installations with Linux, just as with Microsoft. But I believe Linux is much easier to resolve.

            Also, most issues with Linux can be resolved with a commandline. Commandlines rarely work with Windows.
