Topic: [Official] Ubuntu *.deb Packages!

Official Tasty Static Ubuntu Packages

I was bored one day, so I decided to check and see if it was, in fact, possible to build Tasty Static *.deb packages without the source code.  Sure enough, it was! big_smile However, these packages do have a few bugs in them that would require tweaking the source code to fix.  Please read the package notes below before downloading and installing.

Package Notes

  • After installation, you'll find Tasty Static [and Tasty Static Level Editor] under Applications > Games.

  • These packages were built for an Ubuntu 10.04 system.  They will not work with older versions because of dependency problems.  Tasty Static is a relatively old game though, so it does not require the latest versions of its dependencies- let me know if you want a special build for an earlier version of Ubuntu.

  • No, the tedit package is not a real port of the level editor from Windows to Linux- it merely runs tedit.exe via Wine.  Be aware that the help option under "Help > Help!!!" will not work- you can access the manual it links to under /usr/share/doc/tastystatic/teditmanual.html.

  • The 64-bit package is not a port either- it merely contains 32-bit libraries that it runs via ia32-libs.  It will probably not be forwards-compatible with newer releases of Ubuntu.

  • All players will be playing using the same player.db under /usr/share/games/tastystatic.  So if user "bill" gets a high score, "bob" will see it too.  And if "bob" beats "bill's" high score, then "bob's" high score will appear... you get the idea.  Oh, and settings and extras will be shared by users too.

  • The "custom" folder, being located under /usr/share/games/tastystatic/custom, is only writable by root.  If you must enable all-user write access for this folder, you can run the following commands:

sudo chmod -R 666 /usr/share/games/tastystatic/custom
sudo chmod +x /usr/share/games/tastystatic/custom

That's all folks, happy playing!  smile

Thanks!  big_smile I will now replace all instances of "UNOFFICIAL" with "OFFICIAL!"

Can't wait for the source release, then maybe I can overcome the limitations of these packages. wink

Re: [Official] Ubuntu *.deb Packages!

Just confirming, do you have an audio driver installed on your system? The game requires a sound device it can pipe data to before running.

yes, I have the standard pulse audio driver that came with the Ubuntu installation.  The machine I'm running is a dell xps m1530 laptop with a sigmatel audio card.
