I am running 64-bit Lnux mint

After i run the installation script (using latest gog installer), i have following situation^

- faction designer and other small excutablke work fine

- there is no reaction on the attempt of the game launch (both terranx exe and terran.exe) - simply no reaction save for "error" message from POL about Wine closing. When ron from wine console, nothing is printed, and nothing occurs

- uninstaller fails to find some of its files and fails

What is wrong? How can i determine and fix the reason?

It works well once you install sox, but you have to change the Wine version to 1.9.24

I'm getting some errors that I am unfamiliar with when trying to install this. I tried deducing what the issue is, but came to not conclusion. Figured that I'd post here in case anyone else is having the same problem. Here's the log: http://pastebin.com/eMpGxwVx

Managed to figure out a solution:

I went into the PlayOnLinux application, then went to Tools > Manage Wine Versions

From there, I selected a version and waited for it to download and install. I had a few errors still when installing the GOG .exe for Alpha Centauri, but the game seems to be running fine.


Thanks for the script, petch. Runs well.

The installer tries to download WindowsXP-KB975337-x86-ENU.exe from Microsoft.com, but the file is no longer available.

It was diffictult to find the file manually, so I've shared it on my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4svroi5fmimdd1f/WindowsXP-KB975337-x86-ENU.exe?dl=0

Just put the file into ~/.PlayOnLinux/ressources/
