Applications / LuckyBackup fails to start
« Last post by xendistar on November 18, 2019, 10:09:05 pm »

I have installed luckybackup but when I try to run nothing happens, if I try to start it from a terminal (using the file and path from the start menu) I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
mit@Aura:~$ sudo /usr/bin/luckybackup-pkexec
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

According to the luckybackup page it requires the following package

Code: [Select]
libqtcore4 (>= 4.4)
libqtgui4 (>= 4.4)
libc6 or glibc (>= 2.7-1)
libgcc1 (>= 4.1.1)
libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1)
rsync

I seem to have lesser versions libgcc & libstdc, so if dependancys were not matched, why was it installed?

In am running Sparkylinux 6 Po-Tolo with the XFCE desktop and Liquorix kernel 5.3.0-11.2

Any thoughts?

HI,

didn't know that solution will be so easy. I've just installed sparky kernel via APTus.

Thank you guys for your support! My Caprine is working now:)

Debian disables unprivileged user namespaces by default, and your "issue" is consequence of this. Basically I see 3 options:
1) You do what error message says and make sure that /opt/Caprine/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755 (installation I made for the sake of tasting  was indeed owned by root, but had got wrong permissions) ;
2) You enables unprivileged user namespaces all together via sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1 ;
3) You run APTus and you install sparky (or liquorix ) kernel .

Hi,
Sine I am using messenger a lot, I've installed Caprine via APTus. It doesn't open when i trying to open either via gui or terminal.
In the terminal i am getting message that Sandbox wasn't configured correctly.

Does anyone has similar problem?

Assuming wine is at fault, though it might also be dxvk or something else, but ok, assuming wine is at fault and replacing wine with wine staging:

wget -O- -q https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Debian_10/Release.key | sudo apt-key add -   

echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/Debian_10 ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wine-obs.list

sudo apt update

Wine/Lutrix now behaves a bit differently when starting the game and it wants to install some .net/mono/html stuff.

I think log will show this somewhat, I am not sure if this is normal, maybe the updating to wine-staging was not ment for sparky linux, but maybe it's ok.

Now I am back to square 1 with this returncode 91.

What you all make of this ?

Let's suppose it wasn't wine-staging problem ?

How would I revert back to wine (stable) ?

Bye for now,

The profiles are located in %SystemDrive%\Users

Which would be C:\Users

and then probably

C:\Users\<Username>

Which would be:

C\Users\skybuck

And indeed, Star Wars Battlefront folders exist in this folder:

Users/Skybuck/Documents/

Like:

STAR WARS Battlefront II

STAR WARS Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta

STAR WARS Battlefront Beta

I copied all three folders to where wine stores them

Home

and then use control-h to show hidden .wine folder

I also had to create a Documents folder because it was missing.

Only My Documents folder was there

So eventually it looked like:

/home/skybuck/.wine/drive_c/users/skybuck/Documents/

/home/skybuck/.wine/drive_c/users/skybuck/Documents/STAR WARS Battlefront II/

And such.

By creating these folders the game now continues, maybe there are also files there that are needed but I don't think so or are not sure. I would not be surprised if the game only needs these folders to exist.

Anyway the game now seems to continue loading with different results.

If I set Working Directory to game folder as well it will complain bad ex format for a certain DLL: amd_ags_x64.dll

However if I leave working directory empty the result is as follows:

Running /usr/bin/wine /media/skybuck/External Harddisk/Games/Star Wars - Battlefront 2/starwarsbattlefrontii.exe
0025:err:seh:setup_exception stack overflow 1616 bytes in thread 0025 eip 000000007bc48a05 esp 0000000000130fc0 stack 0x130000-0x131000-0x230000
0026:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bd19c00 "loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread 0026, blocked by 0025, retrying (60 sec)

(I also disabled full debugging since it seemed to execute cpu instructions).

To me the above seems like a bug in wine-stable.

Or this bug is caused because the DLL was not loaded properly.

So I am not sure which is which.

Is it necessary to set working directories for wine/lutris ? Or will it default to the exe folder as working directory anyway ?

Bye,
  Skybuck.

Applications / Litrus stuck at ProfileList while running Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017)
« Last post by Skybuck on November 14, 2019, 03:42:29 pm »
Hello,

1. I installed Sparky Linux Game Over edition from ISO inside Virtual Machine in VMWare to an USB Stick.

2. Restarted (real) computer (amd x2 3800+ processor) and (gt 1030 gpu) and booted in USB Stick with NOAPIC option to fix boot problems.

3. Installed sparky installer, update/upgraded system.

4. Installed nvidia drivers.

5. Try to run the game in Lutris enabled debugging/logging.

The log shows the game seems to get stuck at this point:

It seems it is missing profiles or something ?

Maybe I need to set this up somehow in sparky linux/litrus or linux ?!?

Any advise on this how to fake these windows registry keys and perhaps profiles on disk/file system ?

*** updated ***:

This problem is solved by adding "noapic" to the boot options.

This can be done by entering the editor on boot time by pressing E:

The use right arrow on keyboard to navigate to the back of the line where it says something like:

Linux /boot  blablablabla.... noapic

(*** noapic must be written with small letters ***)

Press control-x to boot.

And this solves the error messages and will boot Sparky Linux just fine on Socket 939 motherboard and AMD X2 3800+ processor.

One last tip:

To install nvidia graphics card drivers go to terminal window after installer of spark linux is done and type:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,')

sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings nvidia-driver nvidia-opencl-common
or (for hybrid graphics chipset):
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus primus-libs:i386

This was illustrated in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUsnygrNUMw

Developer of rufus replies on github.

Apperently it adds a mini-partition and this is only necessary for bios that is from before 2000.

I am not sure how to tell if bios is from before or after.

But copyright message says Copright 1985 to 2003 or so... for phoenix bios.

So I guess I am in luck, so this old bios fix is and was not needed for my old socket 939 system.

Sparky Linux running fine with: noapic boot options... (noapic must be written with small letters)

Add it to linux /boot blablabla noapic at the end, by going into E for editor and control-X to boot it finally when boot option is added in menu select at boot time.

Bye,
  Skybuck.
