Solved: 6 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago Bug in the launch script for Overture in the PenumbraCollection for Linux

I installed to /usr/local/games/PenumbraCollection.

The installer created this launch script for Penumbra: Overture.

#!/bin/sh
P=`dirname ${0}`
${P}/Overture/overture

There is no 'overture' in /usr/local/games/PenumbraCollection/Overture, but there is a 'penumbra' which does what I suppose 'overture' was intended to do, which is run penumbra.bin.

Changed it to this and it works.

#!/bin/sh
P=`dirname ${0}`
${P}/Overture/penumbra

Might want to fix that in your installer, however.

Thanks for the great games, and thanks for supporting Linux.

Hi,
this is already fixed in the Testing-Patch (see link above).
I wonder when the final patch is released, though... :-)

Hi, I can confirm this bug is still present in the Linux Penumbra collection I bought yesterday (14/04/2010). It's easy to fix but can be a show-stopper for Linux newcomer, please fix it.

Otherwise the game seems to run great on a Debian Squeeze amd64 system (with ia32-libs installed).

Cheers.

I actually JUST uploaded the new collection installer last night that fixes that "oops" in the launcher scripts.

And currently I am uploading the patches to gameupdates.org right now.
