    I just uninstalled trigger rally 0.5.2 in order to replace it with the new version 0.6.0.

    Unfortunately I'm not experienced enough to get it working using the readme file.

    This is the bash-output I get:

    root@me:/usr/share/games/trigger-rally-0.6.0# ./configure

    checking for PhysFS... not found
    configure: error: Please install PhysFS

    I installed the "Tao CLI binding for PhysicsFS - development files" as well, but the build process doesn't like it. Are the debian stable sources to old possibly?

    I made some progress. It seems to be installed correctly but I can't start the game right now:

    root@me:/home/me/local/trigger-rally/bin# ./trigger
    Trigger init
    Build: 0.6.0 on Apr 21 2013 at 11:31:05
    Initialising PhysFS
    Set writable user directory to "/root/"
    Reset writable user directory to "/root/.trigger"
    Application base directory "/home/me/local/trigger-rally/bin/"
    Main game data directory datadir="/home/me/share/trigger-rally/data"
    Loading game configuration
    No user config file, copying over defaults
    Copying "trigger.config.defs" to "trigger.config"
    Copy failed: PhysFS: No such file or directory
    Couldn't create user config file. Proceeding with defaults.
    Load failed: PhysFS: No such file or directory
    Error: Couldn't load configuration file
    Your data paths are probably not set up correctly
    Config failed: Boink at src/trigger/main.cpp:133

    I'm not sure where to look for brocken paths. Can you give me a hint?

    Sorry, I just discovered that excatly this error message was posted in the other therad: "boink" already. Like suggested, I copied the trigger executable into the data folder. Now it works.

    But I didn't try this before because I did everything to install trigger rally and this way was described as starting it without installation. So I was confused.

    Now I need to find ans set the Icon for the gnome menu by hand... ;)
