    Long story short, new computer.

    I download and install AC (of course), then try to run it and get greeted by this

    error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Any ideas?

    ahh now then that is an easy fix open your terminal. So why mess around lets resinstall all of the opengl packages.

    type in su ( we want to work as root so now enter your system password)

    copy paste this line if your using debian

    sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2debian libsdl-image1.2 zlib1g libogg0 libvorbis0a libopenal1 libcurl3

    copy and paste this line if your using a redhat distro

    sudo yum install SDL SDL_image zlib libogg libvorbis openal-soft libcurl

    libcurl is a very much underestimated bit of kit.. Basically without it you will not get onto the masterserver. I know this because I spent a week messing around with a router and firewalls when libcurl was the issue.
    let me know how you get on as you may have to do some other work on it. In mine I resinsalled AC and put a direct link to it.
    What distro are you using btw.

    Vector you don't need to do su if you are just gonna do sudo in the next line lol

    Ah, so it's those packages. It's just my laptop (which runs mint) works just fine, but for some reason the desktop doesn't. Well, I'll give this a shot. Thanks.

    On some distros those packages are already installed, and in some they aren't. I guess Mint has them pre-installed.

    Well, I used an image that I got from my friend for the desktop. It's no biggie, I'll re-install later, probably getting an ssd on boxing day.

  10. just out of interest do you have a broadcom wifi on your lappy.

    Broadcom has a massive history with linux, there has always been issues with STA

    I have broadcom wifi on my desktop and cannot get Ubuntu to recognize it for the life of me

  12. I managed to get it running with linux mint and also bodhi, puppy was hard work though

    tell me why are you using ubunti its soooo slow
    and a pain front end
    if you want a simple to use distro out of the box try Mint .
    I know mint has a few problems with openal etc as I found out later lol

    But bodhi is great.. But as you say broadcom are not the best wifi adverts are they..

    "To whom?"
    "Them! They are doing it again!"
    "Doing again what?"
    "Talking specialist ways, man!!"
    "Ah ok, I see..."

    I just prefer cinnamon over unity, but mint is a very nice OS.
