Hi there,

Are you using x32 or x64? I will install a copy and try to reproduce the problem now.

Most likely, this is due to not having GTK libraries installed.

Oh you'll need to do './desura --forceupdate' to forcefully get the latest update to resolve it. Apologies and thanks for your patience :)

Howdy,

The windows that don't change is a known bug (affects Windows too unfortunately).

And as for the text being cut off, your system most likely has a slightly bigger than normal font size. This is another known issue that is being addressed in both Windows and Linux versions.

Thanks heaps for your feedback though, and feel free to email me any screenshots as it always helps :)

That's due to not being in the initial beta testers group. As Scott mentioned we're slowly adding people in the order we were asked :)

And it won't be a few months, a lot sooner hopefully!

Yup, as soon as you login the menu shortcut should be updated :)

Fedora 15 is a pain about it (sometimes you have to log out and in for the shortcut to appear), but it should all be good! (If you copy the shortcut to your desktop though, this won't get automatically updated sorry!

Hahah cheesekiller your awesome.

Working on a .deb but it's tricky as the-brain mentioned. I'm sure I can hack something together that works nicely though :)

Also as alexthunder mentions, it updates the menu entry after each login if it's been moved :)

Howdly,

Where are you running it from? There was an initial bug where desura didn't like being installed from inside a directory called 'desura' but we've resolved that now. It just needs to have write permissions to the current directory, or to be inside a directory called 'desura' when you run it.

Perhaps download the installer again and try on your desktop?

Those XIO errors can be ignored, it's just X having a whinge :)

Cheers

Hey there,

What distro and architecture are you using? We'll test it out.

There is a chance that it doesn't like the symlink, but it _should_ be fine. Just make sure the symlink is valid (the command "file lib/libjpeg.so.62" from desura directory) should tell you. It may bug out like that if the symlink is there but broken (pointing to invalid file).

Most likely it's missing libpng12.so.0 and libjpeg.so.62 which I'll upload soon.

It looks like on your system the help package is trying to load, which is requiring doxygen, which is requiring a newer libstdc++.

What are the exact steps to reproduce this, and what is your system configuration (mainly distribution and architecture)?

Thanks

Hi CrazyLapinou,

Thanks for letting us know there's a problem with unicode characters.

I've filed a ticket for it and we'll be resolving it ASAP.

Hey,

While this is a nifty idea, it's simply not the path we're going down sorry.

Perhaps it's something you could implement yourself if you do have a multi user system ;)

On that note, most people don't share their computers these days :P

Hi oldtopman,

With the 64 and 32 bit issues, as I mentioned somewhere else (I can't remember where sorry), we're focusing on a 64 bit client release first (this doesn't mean it can't run 32 bit games though). The games however are up to the game developers. Most of them ship with 32 and 64 bit, but not all.

As for libraries, we've decided to go down a different path, and all game dependencies will be shipped with the games, as they often depend on differing versions, and they're tiny anyway.

Also there's a ticket for WINE support (as mentioned), but it's not our first priority ;) As for beta testing just email support@desura.com saying you want to test Linux beta.

Thanks for your feedback!

Hi hazrpg,

Firtly, I love the pingu avatar!

The next blog post I'm going to cover game installations a little, as it's been quite a hot topic and so we've had to make a decision and put our foot down (in an attempt to make the majority happy and keep things manageable).

As for updates though, I don't think that sort of segregation between updates would be possible for all if not any games. A lot of updates are just small patches, not a whole other copy of the game. It is something that will be kept in mind though, and we appreciate feedback and suggestion of new ideas :)

Keep up the good work.

-Keith
