Linux - Assist 2.5 - No Acceleration
« on: Sunday, April 24, 2016, 17:15:35 PM »
Hey guys,

I have a question. In my "INSTALL" Option in Assist I can't fix the Linux OpenGL Acceleration. How can I do this?

I have installed the original Nvidia driver on my system. My Steam games works perfectly.

Here a picture of my problem.


I can run Americas Army but I have no sound. It doesnt have any effect if I switch to ALSA or PULSE Audio. I think its cause of the Acceleration. I appreciate your help.


Thanks !!!

I don't use Linux to play the game, but I remember I tried to a long ago and I had issues with the Pulse Audio service which needed to be restarted.

I've installed the mesa packet it is needed for the OpenGL Acceleration.

Doesn't mean it's not necessary to play AA.

The time I got AA to work on Ubuntu I just followed the error messages and installed the necessary packages. A lot of them needed the 32bit versions (most likely you run 64bit OS so those will be default).
Other than I'm afraid I can't help much more.

I finally fixed it.

I think I found a solution for all who have sound issues on Linux. I will post it soon.

Linux - Assist 2.5 - No Acceleration / No Sound - Solved
« Reply #8 on: Monday, May 02, 2016, 08:15:06 AM »

Solution to fix all sound problems in Linux 64 bit.

You need to install all 32 bit engines cause all 64 bit engines are already installed.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module:i386
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386
sudo apt-get install overlay-scrollbar-gtk2:i386
sudo apt-get install unity-gtk2-module:i386

Last but not least for acceleration you need to install mesa if its not installed.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install mesa-utils

 :style: Have Fun

Info @ All : This Solution works on all Ubuntu Versions

Additionally, I also did (because for each I got a separate error prior to doing them, in this order).
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
sudo apt-get install libstdc++5:i386
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module:i386
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk3-module:i386
sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2debian:i386
Yet the game still won't run.
Code: [Select]
$ sudo ./System/armyops-bin
./System/armyops-bin: error while loading shared libraries: ./libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Code: [Select]
$ sudo ldd System/armyops-bin
linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xf77bb000)
libdl.so.2 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libdl.so.2 (0xf7795000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7779000)
./libSDL-1.2.so.0 => not found
./libgmp.so => not found
libstdc++.so.5 => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.5 (0xf76be000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libm.so.6 (0xf7678000)
libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf765b000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 (0xf74ac000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x565b9000)

Oh well, I guess it's not meant to be :)

Sound Fixed: this is an OpenAL issue due to it defaulting to pulseaudio driver.
Nothing to do with OpenGL acceleration.

Edit the file .alsoftrc in your home directory (~/.alsoftrc) so that the first line reads :

drivers = alsa

I managed to actually get AA working with Assist for my Ubuntu installation.

I'm not sure what I did is wise (still a novice in Ubuntu) so I'd advice caution to anyone trying to do those steps to get to the same result.

I first installed all the i386 libraries previously mentioned.
Didn't help.

In most of the steps I was running only AA (~/25Assist/armyops/System/armyops-bin) not Assist.

I then tried around (after looking here) to see why it's not finding the library.
I then just blatantly copied the library to armyops folder EDIT: I now realize I should probably have made a symbolic link here as well
Code: [Select]
sudo cp /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libSDL-1.2.so.0 ~/25Assist/armyops/.I then ran into another problem:
Code: [Select]
System/armyops-bin: error while loading shared libraries: ./libgmp.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directoryI tried copying the lib again
Code: [Select]
cp /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgmp.so.10 ~/25Assist/armyops/.But seeing as it wasn't looking for the .10 it didn't help.
Following the example here, I made a symbolic link:
Code: [Select]
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgmp.so.10 ~/25Assist/armyops/libgmp.soRunning AA (with LD_DEBUG=libs) now said it's exiting due to an error and "Missing ini" right before that.

So I then ran 25Assist and joined a server. And it worked.
