Running Ren'Py 6.10 Games on Ubuntu 14.04 and later

Posted here so google and other search engines can find it.

To get Katawa Shoujo and other circa Ren'Py 6.10 games running on Ubuntu 14.04, run (as root):

Code: Select all

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install libc6:i386 zlib1g:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libpulse0:i386
This should probably work for earlier games. 6.11 - 6.14 games may require you to install the i386 libgl1 package appropriate for your hardware, or run in software mode. If there's a specific game someone wants to get working, let me know and I can see if I can provide instructions.

I tried this for Katawa Shoujo on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit, and the "Katawa" file wouldn't run. I checked permissions and put what you posted directly into the terminal, prefaced by sudo. What should I do?

Sigh. Maybe I'm just not meant to be able to run this game.
