How to set up Ren'Py on the Linux Endless 64_86?

#1 Post by EmpressOfEmpresses » Tue Mar 10, 2020 12:09 pm

I've downloaded "renpy-7.3.5-sdk.tar.bz2" and extracted, but a file "renpy.exe" does not work. I can't find any way to run Ren'Py. How to set up or run Ren'Py on the Linux Endless 64_86?

You have to run renpy.sh on the linux terminal, .exe's files are for Windows

In the terminal change the directory to your sdk and type

Code: Select all

./renpy.sh

How exactly? What exactly must be in the terminal? Please, copy-paste all that mast be in the terminal. I've tried and nothing happens. I've tried "/renpy-7.3.5-sdk./renpy.sh" and got a simbol ">" at the left of terminal without a name of my account. And nothing. I've tried and "/renpy-7.3.5-sdk/renpy.sh" and also got a simbol ">" without anything else.

To facilitate the procedure, place the sdk folder in your Home folder.

second press Ctrl + Alt + T simultaneously to open the terminal.

type:

Code: Select all

cd renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
If you don't have the sdk folder in the Home folder, you will have to put the full directory path after cd

finally type

Code: Select all

./renpy.sh
I think you are new in Linux, look for a tutorial on basic commands, good luck.

Also, I don't know how to send a sdk folder to the home folder, right click on the mouse can't help me.

The easiest thing is to move it using the file viewer. you drag and drop it. the other is to use the terminal with the mv command, for example:

Code: Select all

mv source target

And also: "bash: ./renpy.sh: No such file or directory
account:~/renpy-7.3.5-sdk$ "
I prefer to run sdk from a special folder. How exactly? Please, copy-paste me from the terminal.

Maybe you need to grant permissions to renpy.sh , change directory with the cd command to the sdk folder. and type:

Code: Select all

chmod u+x renpy.sh
and then:

Code: Select all

./renpy.sh
If this doesn't work, I don't know what's going on. I hope someone else can help you. Try sending a message to PyTom or ask for help on the Discord channel

I understood how to run sdk from a home folder. I need to run Ren'Py from another folder. How exactly? Please, copy-paste me from the terminal. Like that "account@endless:~$ cd renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
account@endless:~/renpy-7.3.5-sdk$ ./renpy.sh" but for full directory. I have folder "Ren'Py" in the folder "Home".
I've tried:

cd /sysroot/home/account/Ren'Py/renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
>

cd sysroot/home/account/Ren'Py/renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
>

cd Ren'Py/renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
>

My last try, step by step.

1. open the terminal by pressing ctrl + alt + t
2. type:

Code: Select all

cd Ren'Py/renpy-7.3.5-sdk "
3. press Enter. the terminal now looks like "account:~Ren'Py/renpy-7.3.5-sdk$ "
4. type:

Code: Select all

chmod u+x renpy.sh
5. press Enter.
6. type:

Code: Select all

./renpy.sh
7. press Enter.

https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/quickstart.html
in the link it says "On Linux, unpack the tarball, change into the renpy-<version> directory, and then run renpy.sh."

I don't think it works but try to open renpy.sh with double click or selecting and pressing enter from file viewer

Terminal can't understand "Ren'Py" as folder name. I named folder "RenPy" and all works fine now. (Even without granting permissions.) Thank you.

Code: Select all

account@endless:~$ cd RenPy/renpy-7.3.5-sdk/
account@endless:~/RenPy/renpy-7.3.5-sdk$ ./renpy.sh
