Hi All,

I got Shadowgrounds last night via the Frozenbyte Bundle.
First try at installing :

Yep. Let’s click “Start”

Ok, I accept.

Looking good…

Oh Bugger.

So off I go trawling the net, apparently Shadowgrounds needs glade, so I install glade on my machine
apt-get install libglade2-0
But I still get the error !
It would seem that more is needed, so I use the ldd command to find out what libs are linked to the executable file.

$ ldd ShadowgroundsBeta12.run

Nope, that looks all good.
Then it occurred to me to to check the file size…532 MBs. Eep ! It should be somewhere in the 780 MB region.
Looks like the download was corrupted, time to redownload !

Well that was a fast download, now when I try to install I get :

That’s better.

So that’s what the finish screen looks like.
And off I go to have a merry little gaming session.

And I’m not.
Shadowgrounds won’t start properly for some reason, the mouse seems to be stuck to the right hand side of the screen.
Time for some more investigation !
Continued here in Part 2 !
