Fix black screen on GNU/Linux Upstream

Post by havok »

As posted here:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=60

This is a very common error on GNU/Linux. Why it's not fixed upstream?

It's quite easy, just edit CmapTool Bash script at "bin/CmapTools" like posted on that thread.

This is my diff (also attached):

23,26d22
< # Fix problem with 3D compositing in GNU/Linux
< # Please check: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=60
< export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit
<

Without this fix, the Linux version is just unusable for non-computer skilled people like the one I work with on a Edubuntu environment.

After that fix, I got this error:

libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I had to install libxp, don't know why, but now it works:

sudo apt-get install libxp6

Another suggestion: Why not open source CMapTools? That will be just great, and could be included in GNU/Linux distributions :D

Cheers

Note: extension .diff it's not allowed on the forum, so uploading in .txt
