I have mono-complete and openal installed but no love. Anyone know a solution to this problem. I see some other similar posts but no resolutions.

Hello,
in order to be able to play Wizorb on Ubuntu 10.04 32bit (and pretty much on Debian and CentOS too), I completely removed mono, then I compiled mono using a script that I found on the Internet called 'install_mono-2.10.sh' and I created a link to mono in /usr/bin/ :
sudo ln -s /opt/mono-2.10/bin/mono /usr/bin/mono

Finally I had to launch the game using mono at the debug level:
MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug ./wizorb.sh to check the errors related to the libraries.
Note that I modified my wizorb.sh file as follows:

#!/bin/bash

# Get the 'working directory' path.
if echo "$0" | grep '^/' ; then
rootPath="$0"
else
rootPath=`pwd`/$0
fi

# Run the game!
cd `dirname "$rootPath"`
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=lib mono Wizorb.exe

I put the libraries that mono complained about (for example libopenal.so.1, libtiff.so.3, libGL.so.1, libX11.so.6 and so on) on the "desura_directory"/common/wizorb/lib . Note that usually I already had the libraries on my system but the names weren't exactly as requested by the game.
Hope this helps!
Bye, Liviux76

On linux Issues:
I'm on linux mint 11 (distribution based on ubuntu natty).
The game did not work with the version of mono I could get on synaptic.
The game works since I added a ppa for it.
---
On the game:
Please, give us the ability to change the key to speed up the pad, having my fingers on j, k, and n at the same time really hurts !
I'd like to speed up the pad with h for instance.

The rest is pretty good ^^
But I will not play the game again until it's possible to control the pad with the keyboard without hurting myself.

Hello!
I installed the game on my Debian Squeeze, Centos 6.1 and ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Always the 32 bit version.
The error was pretty much always the same, On Debian I compiled mono 2.10 but it didn't help and in Ubuntu I installed the package mono-complete but the game still doesn't work.
I would be happy if you could find a solution for this, if you need my help to test a patch or something, please let me know.
Thanks, Liviux76

UPDATE:

Hello there!
I was able to play the game on my Debian Squeeze.
The problem was not related to mono but it was related to libobenal.
In fact, in order to work, the game needs the library libopenal.so.1 but the one included in Debian Squeeze for some reason is not compatible with the game.
I downloaded the library libopenal.so.1 from the Internet, I created a folder called lib on the main directory of the game and put the library on it, then I modified the starting script adding LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./lib just before mono Wizorb.exe (on the same line!)
Now the game works flawlessly.
Hope this helps!
Cheers, Liviux76

This game is simply amazing. I don't consider myself a breakout guru but this was very fun and easy to pick up.

Only reason it's not a 10/10 was because it should have been longer. Nice replay value though! Gotta beat them high scores.
