Welcome to a issue 3 of the LGP customer services report for the LGP Blog.
Update: Patches are now available for X² and X³, the workarounds for these games are no longer needed. Ballistics might still need it.
Ballistics, X2 & X3: Problems starting on Ubuntu 10.04
Several users have contacted us concerning problems starting Ballistics, X²: The Threat and X³: Reunion.The problem is due to Ubuntu changing their system for managing ld.so paths and the games not handling it like they are suppose to. A patch will be released soon which addresses this problem, meanwhile you can use the following workarounds to play the games. Instead of just using the “ballistics”, “x2″ or “x3″ commands, use one of these to launch the game instead:
ballistics --withgl $(\tail -n 1 /etc/ld.so.conf.d/GL.conf)
X²: The Threat:
x2 --withgl $(\tail -n 1 /etc/ld.so.conf.d/GL.conf)
x3 --withgl $(\tail -n 1 /etc/ld.so.conf.d/GL.conf)
