I recently installed X3: Reunion to my computer running Fedora 12 x86_64
As far as I know I meet all the requirements to run it, it installed properly (or so it seems) and the updater works fine. Except that, while I managed to update it, the game itself never starts. I don't get a crash, or error message, just nothing. I've looked in the system monitor and "top" (I forget where I learned that but it seems to do the same thing) and I don't see anything that looks like it's related, so as far as I can tell it just isn't running at all.
There is a utility on the linuxgamepublishing site called LGP test tool, which they recommend to run for problems. And yet, despite the updater (also LGP) running fine, the test tool has the same problem as the game itself. No error, no crash, just nothing.
I emailed linuxgamepublishing for support, but they need info from the test tool, and suggest there might be some security issue preventing it from running? But it seems that fixing the test tool and the game might involve the same thing, so I guess they can't help for now.
Has anyone else had this problem or have any ideas what might cause it?
