Extreme Tux Racer looks for resources in wrong directory, fails to start
Last modified: 2012-07-23 12:03:59 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run etracer-wrapper in a console window.
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.
The game should run normally.
The correct resource directory is /usr/share/etracer/.
What does "grep data_dir ~/.etracer/options" give?
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 :-)
