Mint 16 / Ubuntu 13.10

Recommended Posts

open a console in the leadwerks dir, before running launcher / install.sh


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


(shouldn't matter but it did)






press Y and wait as some 300mb legacy packages is downloaded and installed



sudo apt-get install unity-gtk2-module


Now you can start leadwerks but it will crash on almost all menues - to fix that


mkdir -p badlib
cd badlib
wget "http://dk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libp/libpng/libpng12-0_1.2.46-3ubuntu4_i386.deb"
dpkg -x libpng12-0_1.2.46-3ubuntu4_i386.deb .
cd ..


It can look a little offputting but it simply

  • creates a new directory "badlib"
  • enters "badlib"
  • downloads an old version of the affected library
  • extracts it locally
  • changes back to the leadwerks dir

after that run leadwerks ( every time ) as


LD_LIBRARY_PATH=badlib/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ ./Leadwerks


you can create a bash file for that - but hopefully the bug will be fixed soon™

Just tried this on my mint16, works as a charm, thanks Guppy!


How did you figure out that it was libpng missing?
