Description Giorgos Skafidas 2012-07-21 12:06:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Extreme Tux Racer tries to access its games resources in /usr/share/games/extremetuxracer, which does not exist, and fails to start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run etracer-wrapper in a console window.
Actual results:
Screen turns blank for a moment, then your desktop reappears. In the console window you can see several messages indicating the files the game was unable to load.

Expected results:
The game should run normally.

Additional info:
The correct resource directory is /usr/share/etracer/.
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2012-07-23 04:40:37 EDT
What does "grep data_dir ~/.etracer/options" give?
Comment 2 Giorgos Skafidas 2012-07-23 09:02:07 EDT
# data_dir
set data_dir "/usr/share/games/extremetuxracer"

That was indeed the problem. After correcting this entry (or just deleting it and having the game recreate it), it works. This is a home directory I carried over from another distribution.

Thank you :-)
