Hey guys!

I've recently installed Warband on my Arch Linux machine. But I can't get it to start.
If I run start.sh from the game folder it always tells me that libGLEW.so.1.10 is missing.
I have the latest Glew installed (ver. 2.0.0-1). I've also tried to symlink to it but it did not work either.
Do I miss another package or how can I solve this issue?

Thank you very much in advance!

Different major versions of shared libraries are not binary compatible; you'll need a GLEW 1 package, which should be installable independently of GLEW 2. Not an Arch Linux user myself, so I don't know the details.
Someone uploaded a package with almost all of the required libraries for Warband. You just have to copy them into the game folder. But there are still some missing and I can't find these particular versions.
It is really annoying that this libs do not come within the gamefolder. I don't know why GOG does not provide these?

While I suppose it might be useful, I have found a number of games where I (and other users) have had to bypass/ignore the supplied libraries, because they are rarely standalone. They depend on other libraries, and system dependencies, as well. glib and SDL seem to be the biggest offenders in that respect. They are also often patched by distributions for security issues, although I doubt I care about any security issues in games myself. Also, there are some libraries they simply can't include, such as libGL (and libGL differences can be important: The Bard's Tale and Eschelon series no longer work well for me likely due to libGL changes over the years, and I can't really go back).

Personally, I use Gentoo, so for this game, I symlink libcurl-gnutls.so.4 to libcurl.so.4 and install media-libs/glew:1.10 for the glew issue (although I used to symlink it before 2.0 came around).

Hi xCr0w,

This is a known issue and the developers of the game were notified about it. You can work it around if you install the latest 32 bit version of libGLEW in your system, then create a symlink to it in the game folder:

$ ln -s "$(find /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ | grep libGLEW | head -n 1)" libGLEW.so.1.10

The path /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ is the path where Ubuntu stores 32 bit libraries and it might be different on Arch Linux. Make sure that the library you are creating symlink to is in its 32 bit version.

Sorry for the late response!

Thank you for the information!
Good to hear that the developer has been noticed.
I'm having the very same problem. I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit and am quite new at using it, so I'm not sure how things work. I was wondering, before doing anything, if the suggested solution works at all and if it works on what I'm running.
@Vickingtor: I just got it running on Ubuntu 18.04 by copying the missing libraries into the "game" directory. Yes, there are more missing libraries than libGLEW.

From the "game" directory, I did the following:
1. Run "./mb_warband.sh" and note the missing library's name. The first one is libGLEW.so.1.10.
2. Run "locate libGLEW.so.1.10" to get a list of such files elsewhere on your computer.
3. Copy one of those files to the "game" directory.
4. Repeat from 1 until the game starts.

I was able to find all of the missing libraries under ~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386. There were 8 of them:
* libcurl-gnutls.so.4
* libgcrypt.so.11
* libGLEW.so.1.10
* libgnutls.so.26
* libidn.so.11
* librtmp.so.0
* libSDL2-2.0.so.0
* libtasn1.so.3

The config app is a different story. It requires libQtGui.so.4 that I was unable to locate, so I didn't get it running. But since the game itself runs, I stopped there.
For me, on Linux Mint 19, only libGLEW.so.1.10 is missing and I can't seem to symlink it to the installed version 2.0, neither copying libGLEW.so.1.10 from the Steam folders seems to work, the game is always complaining about the missing library or wrong class something. So I'm quite sure I just did something wrong here...

Especially when there's a file named libGLEW.so.1.10 with some arrow icon on it (like a link?) and another libGLEW.so.1.10.0 without said icon. Now I'm not a very advanced Linux user myself, so I have no clue what those libraries are or how to link stuff properly.

Any help?

Hate Ubuntu the worst OS ever
Although the question of GenerationLost is some months old there might be others with the same issue.

When the terminal outputs that the game is missing libGLEW.so.1.10 and you've got a file with that particular name with an arrow on its symbol then you have a symlink. You can follow it by rightclicking the file and properties.

As odd_customer said different major versions are not binary compatible. So a symlink to a libGLEW 2 version won't work.

If you copy the correct version of the missing lib file into your game folder, there won't be any "missing library" errors anymore.
