2.7.1 will not start

Post by johnno56 »

Downloaded 2.7.1 multiplatform, as I run with Linux, and it will not start.

For versions 2.6 and 2.7 all I had to do was to create a short cut on the desktop and modify the properties. /john/PlatinumArtsSandbox2.6/sandbox_unix -qmy_stuff and the same format for 2.7 and both ran without a hitch. Modified the short cut to point to the 2.7.1 directory ( /john/PlatinumArtsSandbox2.7.1/sandbox_unix -qmy_stuff ) and nothing. No error message, nothing. (yes, the sandbox_unix was modified as executable, just like 2.6 and 2.7

None of the config files for 2.6 or 2.7 were modified. Ran "as is"

Any suggestions?

regards

J

why are you passing -qmy_stuff anyway? Linux will already use ~/.platinumarts

The script hasn't been changed at all since 2.7.0, so I'd check your shortcut.

Hirato,

The shortcut, apart from the directory name of sandbox, for 2.7.1 is exactly the same as for 2.61 and 2.7.0

I executed "./sandbox_unix" (without quotes) directly from console from with the directories of 2.61 and 2.7.0 and they started without a problem. However, not so, for 2.7.1. The following message was issued "./sandbox_unix: line 132: ./bin/sandbox_client_32_fps: Permission denied". Performing "sudo ./sandbox_unix" displayed the same result.

I have to conclude, from the "direct method", that the problem is not with the shortcuts.

I checked the properties of the ./bin/sandbox_client_32_fps and the owner was not flagged to execute. I checked versions 2.6.1 and 2.7.0 and they were flagged for the owner to execute. Modified the properties of the 2.7.1 version of sandbox_client_32_fps to allow owner to execute and submitted ".sandbox_unix" to start and received the following message: "./sandbox_unix: line 132: ./bin/sandbox_client_32_fps: No such file or directory"

I am so confused.

Regards

J

ps: the "-qmy_stuff" was a carry over from 2.6.0 (old habits die hard)

It doesn't start for me on Linux Mint 11,too.
I have set all launchers to be executed as programs, but when I try to open them nothing happens :(
With previous versions I had completely no problems (2.6 and 2.7)

Sandbox has been using ~/.platinumarts for storage on Linux for a very long time, while I don't have the time or patience to check for when, it predates 2.6.0.


And as I've told both of you, the launching script is completely unchanged from 2.7.0, and should work just fine, save packaging errors.
Can you two get my the output from the following commands, executed in your sandbox directory.
As is I've nothing to offer save "Works for me".

Code: Select all

uname -m
ls -la .
ls -la bin

Whats the point of this? It's basically just list all the files inside the folder.

EDIT: I try now to install it with PlayDeb.net, hope it will work.
2nd EDIT: It isn't up to date and tries to install PAS 2.6.1, so I've abort it :?

I did. but the message at line 132 of sandbox_unix said that the directory or program (sandbox_client_32_fps) does not exist.

Modified using chmod 744 sandbox_client_32_fps (owner execute), chmod 754 sandbox_client_32_fps (owner and group execute) and chmod 755 sandbox_client_32_fps (owner, group and other execute). All displaying the error above. Then restored file to original state.

I am still confused....

For me the lines start with -rwxr-xr-x.
The other lines should be the same like john's (except the name and the numbers at the 5th point).
By the way PAS 2.7 still works fine for me.
Thank you for your help :)
