Starting Eco in Linux
i downloaded the latest version for Linux(0.1.5805.31407) , but if i start one of the executables (dosen't matter which, both produce the same error) a window pops up that's bigger than my screen (1920x1080). I cant see whats on the bottom of the window an input from the keyboard is ignored. Is there any workaround or am I missing something?
Thanks for Support :)
will try to forward it to the devs ..
edit .. i also created a issue on the bug tracker for this
sorry, i missed to give some additional infos:
System: Linux mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64bit Kernel 3.16.0-38-generic
Intel Core i5 5200U
Also the System language is german, if that matters :)
yea .. dont think that matters .. problem seems to be the image with the linux build in unity .. i see what the issue is .. and i can see cant resize this window ether. so i created a bug for it .. i will move this post also to the bug section instead =)
Yeah linux problem with Unity, will look at it asap
for developers link to issue https://github.com/StrangeLoopGames/Eco/issues/370
I figured out a workaround, but it only works for some Linux-Distros.
some Desktop-Manager allow to move a window upwards out of the screen, sadly that dosen't work for all.
for example in xfce:
right click the title-bar and select "Move". Now move the window up until you see the unity settings :)
Maybe that helps somebody out there :)
Is there any update on this? Since I only use linux, I can't try the game until this bug is fixed. How do you plan to release bugfixes?
As you can see here
the bug is on high priority and has the comment "possible resolved". So i think chances are good it is resolved in the next release.
Until then, did you tried installing another Desktop? If running an Ubuntu-System you may try installing xfce (sudo apt-get install xfce4 ).
You then can choose your desktop environment in the login screen of your system (after completely logging out from the current session). how to get around the bug with xfce is described above ;)
