In Topic: Proper way to install on linux?

I think I found another bug. Not sure if this is an issue with weidu or the installer, but in _end, the installer creates the stuff that is meant for the the user's profile folder in the root of the game folder instead, Including baldur.lua. This has the consequence of causing mods, in this case Lefreut's UI, to not detect that EET is installed, and thus not show the correct UI when starting the game. The linux version of the game puts the user-specific stuff in ~/.local/share/  ("~/" is the equivalent of "/home/name_of_user"). As you'll see in the log attached, Stuff is going into:

./Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition Trilogy/

when it should go into

~/.local/share/Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition Trilogy/

@K4thos you may want to consider moving Argent's chitin.key fix into _end rather than _core. While I was working on my mega-install today, I realized that having it in the _core install phase means it's done before other mods that could potentially edit chitin.key as well...  And of course, that's exactly what happened! The standalone chitin.key fix I packaged from Argent77's code does indeed work when I installed it as my last mode. To anyone else reading, that fix is in the the Linux Guide that I linked in my post above.

Just two notes:

- the rms should be rmdirs

- the first mkdir line will likely confuse copy-pasters, so I suggest you either write all three explicitly or use brace expansion

- Good call.

- LOL. I had it that way originally, but I thought I would get complaints about the opposite. Plus I screwed up the command in the first place.

A note for any Penguins coming to this thread, I've written a guide for Linux that details how to set up a modding environment like I've used in this thread. Enjoy! I've also packaged Argent77's chitin.key fix into a separate mod in case you aren't using EET or any other mod that fixes it.

yeah, I'm aware about slashes. For weidu commands EET always uses / and for AT_NOW (command line/terminal) different slashes depending on the system (evaluated from variable). But we don't have control over weidu MAKE_BIFF slahes (always \ regarding of the system), so the chitin.key had to be patched after using this command.

Can you copy paste the code you used ? Cause the GenBiff could use the update too.


It's a little further up in post #33.
