Sorry for my ignorance, but "running the script as root"? I have been trying to just follow the directions given:
Also, on "permissions". This is my machine and my OSs. There shouldn't be anything here, software or hardware, that I shouldn't have utter and absolute access to.
Definitely check out my guide. There should be two user accounts (unless you created more), one is the "root user" (admin) and the other is a normal account (what you normally use). While your regular user account can only do things it's specifically permitted to do, the root account can do just about anything (even if it would result in wiping out the system).
By default you cannot login as the root user, but your normal account should be able to run things as root when required by using the "sudo" command (however it's a very bad idea to run anything as the root user unless it's strictly necessary).
I have put all files in a directory.
Use Terminal to cd
to said directory.
Run the falloutnv_wine.sh file (./falloutnv_wine.sh
, or chmod +x falloutnv_wine.sh
I have your files and the GOG files all in my "/home/------/NewVegas" folder right now. A am running from there. I wanted the NewVegas directory to be with all my other games on the other HDD but I could not "cd
" to the location.
Where are the other games/what error did it produce when you tried to switch to the other directory (note: if the path contains a space you need to either put a backslash before each space or encapsulate them in quotation marks. e.g. if Fallout: New Vegas was installed to "$HOME/Games/Fallout New Vegas":
cd $HOME/Games/Fallout New Vegas
will fail, but:
cd $HOME/Games/Fallout\ New\ Vegas
cd "$HOME/Games/Fallout New Vegas"
cd $HOME/Games/"Fallout New Vegas"
Anyway since you're trying it in "$HOME/NewVegas" right now, it should work... but according to what you posted earlier it was trying to build it in the root path (/), so something is breaking before it gets to that point. It might be that Zorin is missing something important that's normally included with Ubuntu/Mint/etc... are there any other error messages before it gets to that point?
Edit: What happens if you try running "realpath --version" ?
