Cant get the Mac version to work at all either. Keep getting this every time I try and install it.

“LightFish.pkg” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash."

I have re-downloaded the game 5 times and its the same every time. Not really sure what else one can do. Guess I will scratch it up as a loss and think twice about buying any more games from Eclipse.

In any case, I just realized the game was on Linux a few days ago when I happened to wonder about the web and realized all these comments ont he Linux version. At this moment in time I'm currently porting EcoFish to Linux so I was thinking that when that happens I should be able to use the same framework to make LightFish work. Unfortunately, I'm able to work only weekends now on this projects (for a few months) so it may take a little while.

On the other hand, I could use the help of people that both, have made LightFish work on Linux and that hasn't. As I said before I'm new to Linux and could definitely use the help of more experienced people.

Finally, if you bought the game and you're completely unable to make it work on your operating system, please ask Desura to reimbruise your money. I can't do much about this, but advise you to follow that route.

My most sincere apologies for the problems this issue may have caused you and hope that those of you that bought the game and made it work enjoyed it.

Best regards,
Eduardo Jimenez

Hi,

It's Eduardo, from Eclipse Games. First of all, apologies for all the problems with the Linux version. Let me explain this a little bit. But in any case, please, bare with me: I'm not a Linux expert. Actually, I just installed Linux after 8-10 years to port the game to that OS. I've got nothing against Linux, but I'm no expert on the system and I hope you understand that.

I ported the game to Linux quite a few months ago. I managed to get the game running in Linux but my packaging of the game was quite deficient. I had a bloody huge pile of work and after exchanging a few e-mails with Desura technical people but wasn't unable to make it work. The guys sent me an e-mail a few months ago I was so busy I put on hold and it's still in my pile of mails to respond. They must have found a way to make it work. There must have been some kind of misunderstanding because I wasn't informed that the game was made available for Linux in Desura. Probably I already signed I wanted to get the game on Linux and the guy that published thought I'd be informed or something.

TBC...

Hi Eduardo

Thanks for the explanation. I will not be asking for my money back. I have a backlog of games so I am not in a huge rush but I would like to play this game on my Linux machine some day. Good luck with your porting efforts. :)

Ok...so after installing the game and libmono, it still does not start. This is the error output I get:

Running on Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

Am I still missing some dependency or is it just a bug in the game?

I had the same issue.
Make sure mono is installed.
If it is then, sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev
Should fix it
