[SOLVED] Linux libSDL_gfx.so setup for Debian 11, LMDE5

Postby sbb » Sat Aug 13, 2022 6:42 am

Hello, first post.

I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition 5 (LMDE5). This is a Debian 11 derivative distro.

When I try to launch ZeldaNSQ (on the command line), I get an error message about not being able to find the library libSDL_gfx.so.13. Here's how I solved adding that.

Code: Select all
sudo apt install libsdl-gfx1.2-5 libsdl-mixer1.2

That installs the file /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libSDL_gfx.so.15, but Zelda NSQ wants libSDL_gfx.so.13 (not 15 on the end). So how do we fake the existence of libSDL_gfx.so.13? The following seems to work:

Code: Select all
cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
sudo ln -s libSDL_gfx.so.15 libSDL_gfx.so.13

Now try launching ZeldaNSQ again. :)
