LINUX - Esenthel Installer - How to get it work ?
Hi there,

I'm trying to install the linux Version of Esenthel, so far I'm struggling to launch the Esenthel Installer (by consol and raphic launch, both give me noting - no action, no error whatsoever).

What I have done :
-Install Ubuntu 14.10, 64 bits edition. UpToDate
-Using NVIDIA driver (vers 331.113 from nvidia-331 ; my GC is a GT540M)
-Launch individually all the apt-get update/install advised in the Documentation section individually, they seemed to have been properly installed.
-Installed also freeglutfree-dev
-Searched in the forum for some clues, without success of resolving my failure.


If i launch in the proper directory "./Esenthel\ Installer " nothing happens at all.

Has someone an idea of what I am missing ?

Note : list of the topics I've consulted below.

Hi,

Can you open a Terminal, and then open the "./Esenthel\ Installer" from there?
maybe there will be something displayed in the console window.

Hey,

Thx for your quick answer. As I said upper the consol window returns nothing (it start a new command line and nothing is prompted).

I tried using (after make a cd to desktop where the install is)
"./Esenthel\ Installer"
"sudo ./Esenthel\ Installer"
"gksudo ./Esenthel\ Installer"

Nothing does anything nor gve a warning or bug report. :/

Hi,

Can you execute this from the terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install zenity
zenity --error

This should display a message box with an error, does that display for you?

After zenity is installed, can you try running Esenthel again?
Please let me know if Esenthel will now display some message boxes.

zenity is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
bbswitch-dkms dkms libcuda1-331 libvdpau1 linux-headers-generic
linux-image-generic nvidia-prime nvidia-settings screen-resolution-extra
thermald
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 314 not upgraded.

Seems up to date.

Retried Esenthel anyway but not more success. Thx for investigating this, I'll try on my side other configuration of GC driver to see if that's the prb.

Hi,

If after installing it you still don't see any messages boxes, than as a Source Licensee, I recommend that you:

1) download the Esenthel Source on your Linux computer.
https://github.com/Esenthel/EsenthelEngine/

2) Open "Engine" Project in NetBeans
https://github.com/Esenthel/EsenthelEngi...gine/Linux

3) Right click on it, and set "configuration / Debug", and Compile

4) Open "Project" Project in NetBeans
https://github.com/Esenthel/EsenthelEngi...ject/Linux

5) Right click on it, and set "configuration / Debug", and Compile

6) Then start debugging, for example from 'InitPre' line by line, and see what happens

Okay.

I was able to compile Esenthel editor through the engine builder. No bugs on the two projects I had to run.

However I was no able to compile "compile web " as it asked for Visual Studio path (like when I was on windows but I assume it is not normal since I am on Linux). Picture enclosed. Thx for your support.

I'll tell you if everything is in order in a few days.

Hi,

Yes, that's normal, Web Compilation is available only on Windows, this option will be hidden on Linux for next Release.
