Installation
« on: 13. July 2018, 01:28:49 »
I have downloaded and installed EGSL 1.6.0 without issue.

The IDE executed without issue. The interpreter, however, is another ball of wax.

I am running with the 64bit version of Linux Mint 18.1 (LUA 5.2 installed)

I copy and paste the "3D Stars" example (from this site - http://retrogamecoding.org/board/index.php?topic=30.0) into the IDE and when "execute script" button is clicked, nothing. No problem. I then decided to run it from a 'Terminal' using the ./egsl filename command and was presented with the following error message.

"./egsl: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_gfx.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I do not know how to fix this... Since the publication of '3D Stars', in 2012, my OS has been automatically updated several times. My system is currently using libSDL_gfx.so.15

I know there is a command to enter a symbolic link but I need to know, before I potentially muck things up, as to how to do this 'correctly'.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you need more info, just ask and if I can, I will let you know.

Thank you.

I was reading somewhere on this forum that EGSL is no longer being developed? If that is the case then can some please close this thread?

Yep, it isn't developed anymore. Seems in the meantime compatibility with newer Linux distributions is broken.

I just learned that EGSL is still working correctly on Haiku. So for anyone who's interested ...
