Client doesn't launch on Ubuntu anymore after updating to 12.7

Post by kettu » Tue Oct 15, 2019 8:11 pm

I restarted the computer and redownloaded the client but still no success.

I don't find a log file and since I'm not versed with deeper mechanics of Linux, I don't know how to debug.

12.6.1 still runs fine. I'm running Ubuntu 19.04.

I expected this to happen because of the libcurl dependency removal. Can you try installing libcurl? Can you run a terminal window and execute ./DDNet from there and show us the output?

Or wait for DDNet 12.7.1 which will be released in ~30 minutes.

Code: Select all

./DDNet: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_3' not found (required by ./DDNet)

Does this mean that the client had the libcurl library in it before 12.7? I can try to install it, but I prefer to wait for 12.7.1 unless I'm the only Linux user, then no need to hotfix it for me.

12.7.1 misses the same dependency:

Code: Select all

./DDNet: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_3' not found (required by ./DDNet)

Yes.

Ah, sorry, I botched the 12.7.1 release.
